The AAM Group Names Employee of the Year

The AAM Group Names Employee of the Year | THE SHOPThe AAM Group has named Vendor Support Specialist Mark Franchetti as the organization’s 2020 Employee of the Year and recipient of the W.O.W. Award, the group announced.

The group cited Franchetti’s abilities to create sales growth and business opportunities through new product lines, product education and rebate and promotional awareness, and by communicating with members of AAM’s Reseller Community and sharing his findings back to AAM’s Vendor Partners and WD Members.

The W.O.W Award is named after Wilber and Orville Wright, the creators of the world’s first airplane, and symbolizes the positive traits shared by the Wright brothers, including commitment, consistency, innovation, initiative, resourcefulness and more, the company says. It is awarded to the employee who has had the most positive impact on the company over the past year by demonstrating these qualities.

“It is an honor and privilege to receive this AAM Employee of the Year award. When I joined the AAM team a little over 2 years ago, I immediately felt at home and welcomed to the team. To be able to work with a cohesive group of co-workers, members, and vendors in an industry that I love (and that has been my career since I got out of high school) makes it a pleasure to start work each day.” Franchetti said, “I must say that my tenure here has been the most satisfying of my career, and to be recognized with this award is the highlight of my career. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks.”

Tim Odom, AAM’s President, stated, “Mark is a tremendous asset to our team. He contributes great value in his role and provides context and industry knowledge and perspective to many of his teammates. His insights into the needs and expectations of local resellers have informed many decisions and added new dimension to our team.”

Headquartered in Piney Flats Tennessee, The AAM Group manages product purchasing and marketing for manufacturers affiliated with 3 flagship retail marketing programs: Parts Pro, Performance Corner and Total Truck Centers.
