The 2021 Automotive Communications Awards were announced during the Women in Auto Care Awards ceremony at AAPEX to celebrate the marketing achievements in both business-to-business and business-to-consumer markets of the auto care industry.

With 125 total entries, this year saw fierce competition for a chance to take home one of 30 awards presented in Las Vegas.

The Automotive Communications Awards annually recognizes companies and agencies that provide automotive information to consumers and trade professionals through outstanding advertising, marketing, merchandising and effective public relations. The award submissions are judged and winners determined by volunteer members of the Auto Care Association Marketing and Communications Committee and the Automotive Communications Council (ACC).

“The Women in Auto Care Automotive Communications Awards are really special, because not only do they recognize and reward our industry’s best marketers, but the awards also give back to the industry through scholarship dollars.” said Jacki Lutz, executive committee administrator, Women in Auto Care. “Congratulations to all of the winners this year. These submissions are judged by our industry’s greatest marketers, so you should really feel extra proud that you were awarded by your industry peers.”

A portion of the proceeds from award submissions goes toward the Women in Auto Care Scholarship program, which annually awards both cash and tool scholarships to young women enrolled in post-secondary automotive programs.

      The Meineke Dealers Purchasing Cooperative Inc. (MDPCI) has announced Advance Auto Parts as the winner of the 2021 Vendor of the Year Award.
      Advance has been a member of the Meineke Dealers Association (MDA) and the MDPCI Co-op for many years. Over the past few, Advance’s program has grown at “unprecedented rates,” according to the MDA and MDPCI.
      Vendor of the Year is selected based on survey results from the Meineke dealer group and is awarded based on criteria ranging from the cost and quality of parts and services to the overall ease working with the vendor. One of the key measurements is overall satisfaction with the vendor and their program.  
      “The growth of our program with Advance has been tremendous over the past year,” said Ron Soto, executive director of the MDA and MDPCI said. “It is a testament to the true partnership they have provided our dealers and the delivery of the commitment they made to the MDPCI to help increase profitability of the Meineke Service Centers nationwide. Advance has developed an exceptional program working with the MDPCI as partners, and helped Meineke dealers across the country. We look forward to continued growth in 2022 and beyond.” 
      “On behalf of the entire Advance Professional team (Advance, Carquest, Autopart International and WorldPac) that supports Meineke Dealers every single day, I’d like to express how honored we are to be named Vendor of the Year for Meineke Dealers throughout the U.S. and Canada in 2021,” said Pete Masini, director of strategic accounts at Advance. “Moments like this do not typically happen by accident, and it takes an effort on both sides to build partnerships like the ones we have with our Meineke partners. 
      “Our relationship has been a journey to reach this point, and every day, more and more Meineke dealers are giving Advance Professional the opportunity to earn their business. Thank you for your support. Our promise is to continue our passion for providing you with industry-leading service that you can rely on, quality parts, solutions to support your business growth, and a partnership to last for many years to come.”
