TORONTO—Canada’s Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association (APMA) has appointed Flavio Volpe as its new president.
Volpe replaces Steve Rodgers at the helm of the association.
“Our industry continues to face significant challenges in an increasingly competitive global market. We expect that our new president will take a strong role as a lead advocate for our industry, and we look forward to this new chapter at the APMA,” association chair Keith Henry said in a brief statement published by the APMA.
A graduate of the Schulich School of Business MBA program at York University in Toronto, Volpe has worked with Ontario’s Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure, as well as Industry Canada.
“I look forward to championing the globally tested and innovative competitiveness of the Canadian automotive supply chain,” Volpe said in the APMA statement.
“The APMA will be a strong voice at the table, working with our private and public partners to build on our industry’s 100 year legacy in Canada.”
Rodgers led the association for five years.
