Recently retired KYB employee, Wm. “Mac” McGovern, AAM, AAP, Director of Marketing and Training at KYB Americas Corporation, was honoured with the Lifetime Industry Achievement Award by the Import Vehicle Community for contributions to the import automotive aftermarket.
The community of the Auto Care Association recognized men and women who have made significant contributions to the import automotive aftermarket. The awards were presented to the winners at the Import Vehicle Community’s Luncheon and Awards Program, which was held during the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas.
The accolade was accepted by Vice President Mike Fiorito and Director of Product and Marketing Aaron Shaffer on Mac’s behalf. Mac made the tough decision to stay home and enjoy Halloween with his grandchildren, and missed AAPEX for the first time in many years.
Mike Fiorito said, “Mac was humbled and honoured to receive the recognition. He hopes that his efforts of listening to and working with the service provider community continues to spread throughout the industry.”
