ASE Partners with Bogi Lateiner

Lateiner will help the ASE Education Foundation pursue its goal of increasing diversity in the industry.

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) announced it joined forces with noted automotive expert Bogi Lateiner to promote the benefits of ASE testing and certification and help the ASE Education Foundation pursue its goal of increasing diversity in the automotive service industry.

“Bogi Lateiner is one of the most recognizable figures in the industry. She is an ASE Master Technician, experienced shop owner and leading voice, encouraging women to enter the automotive field as service professionals. We are very pleased to have her join us in our efforts to share the value of ASE certification and promote automotive career opportunities to women and underrepresented groups,” said Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO.

The partnership will kick off at the 2023 ASE Instructor Training Conference held July 17-20 in Concord, North Carolina, where Lateiner will meet with the conference attendees, including high school and college instructors from auto, truck and collision repair programs nationwide, and focus on helping them implement tactics that support increased diversity among students in their programs, ASE says. In addition, she will promote ASE testing and certification through a variety of ongoing activities such as podcasts and videos.

ASE says Lateiner is noted for encouraging and promoting women in the automotive trades. As a successful shop owner, Lateiner has served as an industry management instructor for 10 years and has developed programs such as “Girl Gang Garage” that train and help women enter the automotive field and hosts the popular television show “All Girls Garage” and podcast “With her Two Hands.”

“I couldn’t be happier to be partnering with ASE,” said Lateiner. “ASE certification has always been extremely important to me. As a technician, I see it as my doctor credentials, and as a shop owner, it helps convey to my customers that we take pride in our craft and our continuing education. However, ASE does so much more that many aren’t aware of and I’m excited and honored to help spread the word about all they do to help shape the future of the industry. “

“We commend the Biden Administration and the USTR for their thorough review of the Section 301 China tariffs that were implemented in 2018 as a way to address China’s unfair trade practices,” said Hanvey. “We applaud our members’ efforts in reducing their reliance on sourcing from China and investing in resilient U.S. supply chains. However, we want to reiterate that tariffs continue to negatively impact our members and the automotive aftermarket industry. Many products lack manufacturing alternatives outside of China due to infrastructure issues, significant investments in tooling and the knowledge to produce a high-quality safety product.
