APMA Appoints New President

The Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association (APMA) announced today that Flavio Volpe has been appointed its new President. Flavio brings with him a wealth of international and transnational private sector development experience and high-level industry specific public sector experience with the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure and Industry Canada. Flavio's experience pursuing and negotiating Original Equipment Manufacturer investments in Ontario brings an exciting new perspective to the APMA.

Flavio, a graduate of the Schulich School of Business MBA program, takes over from Steve Rodgers who successfully advocated for the competitiveness of the Canadian supply chain as the global industry emerged from the economic downturn of the last 5 years. 


"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." - Keith Henry, Chairman, APMA

"I look forward to championing the globally tested and innovative competitiveness of the Canadian automotive supply chain. 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" - Flavio Volpe, President, APMA.
