AirPro Diagnostics, an industry leader in remote OEM diagnostic scanning, programming, safety system and ADAS calibrations, has announced the hiring of Frank LaViola as senior sales and marketing consultant.
LaViola brings with him over 25 years of experience in the collision repair industry working nationally with quality repairers, OEMs and other vendors in relationship development, performance reporting and development of industry KPIs.
“I am excited to join Lonnie Margol, Chuck Olsen, Michael Quinn and the entire AirPro team,” said LaViola. “After careful review of the AirPro business model and their competition, I realized the difference and the real value AirPro brings to all stakeholders in the collision repair industry. We all understand shops’ need for quality OEM services, and AirPro delivers exactly that. As vehicles become more and more complex, vehicle manufacturers will further clarify their position that the scan tool and their software be connected directly to the vehicle.”
Added AirPro Diagnostics President and CEO Lonnie Margol, “We are very pleased to attract such an experienced and highly respected industry leader at this pivotal time in our growth at AirPro. Frank is well respected and understands the need for safe repairs and working with all stakeholders to accomplish that. We are confident Frank will play a significant role in our 2019 strategy to shift the industry focus from the misleading narrative of only ‘factory tools’ to that of utilizing true OEM scan tool software applications and OEM-sourced software that is directly connected to a vehicle as designed by OEM scan tool manufacturers.”
