Nehez Joins Autologue Computer Systems

John Nehez brings almost four decades of automotive experience to the sales team.

Autologue Computer Systems announces that John Nehez has joined the Autologue sales team, growing the size of the team and adding his expertise, the company said.  Nehez has automotive experience in roles ranging from stock boy to counterman and manager, finally building his career on software sales to the automotive aftermarket. 

Nehez started working at the age of 16 as a stock boy at a Carquest store in Fairfield, CT.  In a short time, he rose to the position of counterman, and after making a move to a larger distributor, eventually became an assistant manager.  He noticed the efficiencies that technology brought to distribution, and the increase in effectiveness for companies that could leverage that technology.  He joined Telecomp Computer Systems in 1990 as an implementer and trainer. 

Since that time, Nehez transitioned to sales and eventually went to work for other companies including Activant (now Epicor) and Kerridge Commercial Systems (MAM Software) before joining Autologue.

“John is a person that pays attention to details, which is important to distributors evaluating software” states Al Neal, vice president of sales for Autologue. “He always wants to do right by the customer and does his best to make sure that they are taken care of. His perspective and approach fit right in with the Autologue culture.”  

“We continue to invest in our company and the automotive aftermarket” shared Jim Franco, president and CEO of Autologue. “Adding John to the team helps make us stronger and more effective bringing solutions to automotive parts distributors across North America.”
