Every so often, our editorial staff selects one aftermarket industry professional to get to know a little better. Participants are asked to respond to a series of questions that can be answered in about the same amount of time you might spend chatting at the office coffee pot or waiting for an elevator. In this installment of “Five Minutes With,” we get to know Tom Dayton, parts manager for the Dave Warren Auto Group in Jamestown, New York. Dayton, the 2009 Counter Professional of the Year, is a monthly columnist for Counterman, a sister publication of aftermarketNews.
