AIADA installs Kull as 2014 chairman

January 31, 2014
The American International Automobile Dealers Association on Jan. 27 elevated Marlton, N.J., dealer Larry Kull to be its 2014 chairman, at the AIADA’s 44th annual meeting and luncheon.
"I don’t expect to eliminate government involvement in our stores or our industry, but I will work throughout this year to ensure that those making the laws and setting the regulations have some understanding of how our businesses are run," said Kull. "It must be our mission in Washington to educate them."
Kull and several family members operate a successful group of dealerships that include Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Toyota, Scion, Subaru, Buick, GMC, and Chevrolet franchises.
Kull has served on the AIADA’s board of directors for several years, including recently as treasurer. In addition to his involvement with the AIADA, Kull also is a board and executive committee member of the New Jersey Coalition of Automotive Retailers. Kull and his dealerships support numerous local charities and initiatives, including the NADA Charitable Trust Ambassadors Program. Kull also serves on the board of the Cooper Medical School at Rowan University in Camden, N.J.
Also during its annual meeting, the AIADA recognized Orange County, Calif., auto dealer David Wilson with its 2014 David F. Mungenast Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is named after the late AIADA chairman who was known throughout the auto retail industry for his commitment to his community and the industry. Wilson operates Wilson Automotive Group, a group of 16 dealerships that has been recognized as one of the ten biggest dealership groups in the country.
Other AIADA 2014 officers include Jenell Ross, immediate past chairwoman (Centerville, Ohio); Brad Hoffman, chairman-elect (East Hartford, Conn.); and Greg Kaminsky, secretary/treasurer (El Cajon, Calif.)
