Vision Conference to Feature Distributors Panel 

Top leadership from Parts Authority, XL Parts & The Parts House, and Auto-Wares to sit on panel.

Warehouse distribution is changing at a lightning pace – from consolidation and e-tailing returning WDs to the consumer sector to shop/customer consolidation, DIFM segment growth –  and more. The 2023 Vision Conference, taking place on April 12 will feature a panel of distribution leaders and innovators discussing these topics in a segment called, “The Future of Aftermarket Distribution.”

The segment, moderated by John Chalifoux of MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers, will include:

Randy Buller, Parts Authority

Todd Leimenstoll, Auto-Wares

Mike Odell, XL Parts & The Parts House

“I am looking forward to moderating this panel of leaders who will share their vision of what’s ahead for warehouse distribution,” said John Chalifoux, COO, MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers and MEMA’s Chief Sustainability Officer. “These executives and their businesses are leading the way. We are honored to have them share their insights, strategies, and growth opportunities with the aftermarket supplier community.” 

Members of MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers will also be able to take advantage of pre-conference content on April 11, 2023, including the Advocacy Town Hall led by Ann Wilson, senior vice president of MEMA’s government affairs. Ann will provide members with an update on the fight for repair access and the federal legislation, the REPAIR Act.
