LAS VEGAS — Today, Greg Remensperger, executive vice president of the Oregon Auto Dealers Association (OADA), was elected 2022 chairman of the Automotive Trade Association Executives (ATAE) at the ATAE annual winter meeting.
“As someone who was born into an auto dealership family, I am incredibly passionate about supporting dealers as they navigate issues that impact their businesses, as well as preserving the integrity of the dealer franchise system,” said Remensperger. “I look forward to serving as the 2022 ATAE chairman and working with NADA 2022 chairman Mike Alford and the more than 100 state and metro dealer associations in the U.S. and Canada.”
Remensperger has been with OADA for nearly two decades, joining the organization in 2004. In his role as executive vice president, he serves as the voice of Oregon’s franchise new automobile industry at both the local and federal level. In addition to his oversight of the state association, Remensperger also oversees the Metro Portland New Car Dealers Association and the Portland International Auto Show.
Prior to joining OADA, Remensperger worked in the oil industry, where he established relationships with a number of Oregon auto dealers and served as a strategic partner to OADA. Remensperger is a graduate of Pacific University in Forest Grove, Ore. He and his wife Jodi have four children.
Members of ATAE, which represents more than 100 state and metro new car and commercial truck dealer associations in the U.S. and Canada, work together on legislative and regulatory challenges facing dealers and support their respective members with educational and training programs, auto shows, conferences and other business services.
The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), founded in 1917, represents more than 16,000 light-vehicle and commercial-truck dealerships with 32,500 domestic and international franchises. New-vehicle franchised dealers are directly responsible for more than one million U.S. jobs.
