The AAM Group has named Sharon Cameron as its new business analyst. Cameron, who most recently served as AAM’s product data specialist (PIES), will focus on purchasing reports and predictions, product compliance reporting and PRO Rebates tracking. She is the third member of AAM’s vendor relations team, which also includes Vice President of Vendor Relations & Purchasing John DeBalso and Vendor Relations Manager Mark Franchetti. The team conducts regular reviews with distribution members, facilitates member-supplier conversations, holds monthly purchasing calls and evaluates brands to identify areas of growth.
Cameron’s educational background has uniquely prepared her to succeed in this role. She holds a bachelor of science degree in mathematics with a focus in data analytics and quantitative tracking. Her expertise in analyzing large data sets will power the vendor relations team’s efforts to maximize the success of every AAM member and supplier partner through evidence-based evaluations of past performance and projected areas of untapped potential.
“I am extremely excited to jump in as AAM’s new business analyst, a role that lets me use my analytical skills in a meaningful way,” Cameron said. “Through quantitative modeling and predictive techniques, I hope to enrich our members with new insights into the automotive aftermarket, providing them with the research and analyses necessary to weather changes and challenges in the marketplace and ultimately grow their business.”
