Scarpelli elected 2016 NADA vice chairman

October 23, 2015
Mark Scarpelli’s fellow directors of the National Automobile Dealers Association this month elected him the association’s 2016 vice chairman. Scarpelli, principal of Raymond Chevrolet and Kia in Antioch, will assume the office at the next NADA Convention & Expo, March 31-April 3 in Las Vegas. 
"I am honored to represent the NADA and the new-car dealers across America," said Scarpelli. "I welcome the opportunity to help represent this great industry as NADA vice chairman."
His election makes Scarpelli the presumptive chairman of the NADA in 2017.
Jeff Carlson, a Ford and Subaru retailer in Colorado, is the incoming NADA chairman. Other new officers are Delaware dealer Bill Willis, secretary; and Neale Kuperman, of New York, treasurer.
An NADA director since 2011, Scarpelli currently is chairman of the board’s industry relations committee. He has served as chairman of four other NADA committees: dealer operations, public affairs, regulatory affairs, and convention.
Scarpelli was a director on the CATA board of directors from 2001 to 2010. He became chairman of the board in 2007-2008 and was chairman of the 2009 Chicago Auto Show.
He is active in his community, serving as a member of the Antioch Rotary Club, and as a director since 2003 with the Better Business Bureau of Northern Illinois, and as a director since 2006 with State Bank of the Lakes, a Wintrust community bank in Antioch.
Scarpelli also has won numerous awards and accolades, including GM’s Mark of Excellence Award, in 2010 and 2011; Antioch Community High School’s Make a Difference Award, in 2008; the Forefronts Award from Lakeland Media, in 2005; and recognition in 2006 from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago.
