Auto Dealer Today — The newly formed Alliance for Automotive Innovation was created by the merging of two prominent auto industry trade groups, Global Automakers and the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers. This new entity's main goal is to speed advancement in transportation through stakeholder engagement, greater public understanding and public policy.
"For almost a generation now, you've had two very successful trade associations that have created the framework and the foundation that will allow us to move forward," said John Bozzella, CEO of the new organization and former CEO of Global Automakers. "This is an incredibly exciting development for auto at the intersection of policy and innovation," Bozzella said. "It's really the first time in the history of the auto industry that we've been able to really bring together in one association all of the auto manufacturers that develop, design, innovate and sell and service cars and trucks in the United States.
