Pine Brook, NJ (PRWEB) July 24, 2014
After being named the Automotive Aftermarket Woman of the Year at AAPEX in November, Paula Lombard has been asked to tell her story in a “Meet An Associate” session at this year’s Car Care Council Women’s Board meeting. The Woman of the Year is chosen based on a person’s longevity in the aftermarket, her career accomplishments, her leadership capabilities and dedication to the automotive aftermarket industry.
With quite a unique story to tell and over 20 years in the industry, Lombard grew her business of selling wipers from the trunk of her car into what we know as WEXCO Industries today. WEXCO Industries is one of the nation’s leading suppliers of windshield wiper blades and HD components. Feeling compelled to give back to her community, Paula created AutoTex Pink windshield wipers in 2009, donating a percent of sales to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NCBF) and the Breast Cancer Society of Canada for every wiper blade sold. Due to its many contributions, AutoTex Pink is currently a Gold sponsor of the NBCF.
From July 29-30, Women’s Board members will gather from across the country to collaborate on industry specific topics as well as opportunities, education and career leadership to women in the auto care industry in San Diego, Ca.
