On Jan. 30, the Young Auto Care Network Group (YANG) held a meet-up at Top Golf in Scottsdale, AZ, hosted by Heri Automotive and BBB Industries.

The theme of conversation was Career Trajectory in Your 30s.

 

Event host Thurston Adams, Managing Director of Global Sales for Heri Automotive, stressed, "It's important to acknowledge that networking is a flex ingredient to having a successful career."

 

The meeting attracted more YANG members than anticipated, with attendees coming from as far as Texas to network with peers.

 

Adams said, "Overall, I believe the group enjoyed the atmosphere of getting to talk work while playing golf. We had a 50/50 balance of golfers and non-golfers, and it was enjoyable to watch the two [types of] golfers blend into one by the end of the evening.

 

"We work in a large industry, and many of us are unaware of just how large and diverse it truly is. Events like YANG's Regional Meet-Ups allow us to get out of our bubbles and meet our peer group. The aftermarket is a dynamic industry, and there are a lot of opportunities ahead for young professionals looking to kick-start their careers. Regarding our expectations, we set the bar low this year. Next year, we'll have to double it."
