AMI Announces Recipient Of 2014 Arrowhead Automotive Specialty Market ‘High Octane’ Scholarship

The Automotive Management Institute (AMI) – in conjunction with Arrowhead Automotive Specialty Market, a division of Arrowhead General Insurance – has announced the recipient of the Arrowhead Specialty Market “High Octane” scholarship. The recipient is Chris Pfefferle, president, Pfefferle Tire and Auto Service in Fairfield, Ohio.

The scholarship recognizes a management-oriented member of the Automotive Service Association (ASA) Mechanical Division. The recipient receives $1,000 to be applied toward expenses to attend educational sessions and view the latest repair technologies and equipment during the Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS), which takes place July 30-Aug. 2 in Detroit.

Pfefferle has worked in the automotive service industry for 18 years. He holds several ASE certifications and earned the Institute’s Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) designation in 2011. When not working in the shop, he contributes his time to various community organizations.

“I am extremely honored to be the recipient of this scholarship from AMI and Arrowhead Automotive Specialty Market,” said Pfefferle. “I’m excited this opportunity will allow me to better myself and sharpen my skills through the abundance of quality training available at CARS.”

AMI was established to answer the demand for continuing education tailored specifically for the business needs of the automotive service industry. The Institute offers the Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) designation, the first business management accreditation exclusively for the automotive service professional. To date, AMI programs have attracted more than 228,000 enrollments throughout North America.
