ASA Announces Management and Organizational Changes

ASA Automotive Systems, the industry leader in providing software systems and services to independent tire dealers, today announced management and organizational changes that will more closely align its corporate structure and growth strategy.

As a result, the following senior level leadership changes will take place:

Dave Vogel – Vice President & General Manager

Effective November 1, 2013, Vogel will take over as General Manager for ASA’s Meridian, Idaho office. He will have full responsibility for all of the departments of that office location, as well as continue to drive the marketing and sales efforts for the TireMaster Windows product line and the CornerStone Powered by ASA software (for Bridgestone Consumer Dealers). Vogel will also take over all service areas as well as the development group for the TireMaster Windows product line. This will allow him to focus on a business he knows very well, and that is to deliver enhancements to the TireMaster and CornerStone Powered by ASA software as quickly as possible. In addition, Vogel will remain involved with the TireMasterG4 product development team for product guidance of the new application.

Scott Hopkins – Vice President Operations & Technology Services

Hopkins will focus his attention on the release of the TireMasterG4 Accounting and POS applications. Hopkins will continue to be responsible for the operations in ASA’s Merrimack, New Hampshire office, as well as all the development and technical services groups. He will also become an advisor to the product & technology decisions for the TireMaster Windows product line.

“Our focus remains on our customers and these organizational changes will enable us to deliver our new product TireMasterG4 as scheduled and continued the product growth of the TireMaster and CornerStone Powered by ASA software,” said Ken Halle, president of ASA Automotive Systems. “These changes demonstrate the depth and strength of ASA’s leadership. I am very excited about these changes and strongly believe that they will help to ensure our success in the coming year.”
