We are pleased to announce that Tunç Kip, Business Development Manager at Temel Gaskets, is among the 2015 Auto Care Association Next Step Program honorees. For this award, the Young Auto Care Network Group (YANG) and the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA) granted scholarships to twelve young automotive industry professionals. The recipients will receive scholarships of $1,100 to attend the Auto Care Association Spring Leadership Days, which will take place May 6-8 at the Hyatt Regency in Scottsdale, Arizona.
“I feel privileged to have the opportunity to attend the Auto Care Next Step Program next month in Arizona,” Tunç says.
Temel Gaskets has been a member of the Auto Care Association for many years, and has been taking on an increasingly more active role in various arenas.
“We believe our involvement in Auto Care will take our company forward in maintaining and improving Temel Gaskets’ position as a valuable source for high-quality products and much critical expertise,” Tunç explains.
In addition to increasing our involvement in important industry organizations, Temel Gaskets has been ramping up efforts to become a comprehensive knowledge base both externally for clients and business partners and internally for our growing number of team members. Attendance at events like the Auto Care Spring Leadership Days helps our team learn and share industry knowledge.
“We realize the importance and the great need to share best practices with one another to take the entire industry onto the next level,” Tunç says. “I look forward to meeting with many other young professionals from the auto industry and establishing connections that I already know will last for many years to come.”
