The Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association (APMA) has a new president.

Flavio Volpe has replaced outgoing president Steve Rodgers, who had been at the APMA helm for five years.

“Our industry continues to face significant challenges in an increasingly competitive global market,” said Keith Henry, chairman of Toronto.-based APMA. “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 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. “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.”
