The practices are recommended for distributor and manufacturer sales personnel and manufacturers’ representatives, and detail what works best for repair shops when setting up appointments and maintaining communication.
The concept for the best practices document developed from a forum of association member warehouse distributors, manufacturers, manufacturers’ representatives and CCPN. CCPN members noted that while they rely on their supplier sales personnel for information and support, these recommended practices could enhance the efficiency of their communications and meetings.
The best practices were submitted and discussed by CCPN members, then reviewed and approved by the combined forum.
The CCPN committee members are:
Chuck Hartogh, C & M Auto Service, Glenview, IL, Chairman
Dwayne Myers, Dynamic Automotive, Frederick, MD, Vice Chairman
Brian Bowersock, West Escondido Automotive & Transmission, Escondido, CA
Scott Brown, Cardinal Plaza Shell, Springfield, VA
