Spotlight date: December, 2017
The ASCCA Revenue and Benefits Committee is proud to announce that it has selected Todd Westerlund of Kukui as ASCCA’s December Partner of the Month. Each month, an ASCCA partner is recognized for their steadfast support of ASCCA, its members, and the automotive repair industry, and their commitment to ASCCA’s Core Purpose: To elevate and unite automotive professionals and give them voice.
Kukui has been an Exclusive Endorsed Vendor with ASCCA since 2013 as well as a Corporate Partner at the $10,000 level. With a rich history in information technology, Kukui provides businesses a custom marketing platform that integrates each organization’s Point of Sale system.
When asked how his partnership with ASCCA has benefited Kukui, Todd replied, “Partnering with ASCCA lets Kukui be more in tune with what top shop owners are doing to make them successful. It allows us to hear directly from them about their interests and concerns and to understand what else they need to continue that success. This, in turn, allows us to fine-tune our offerings to support that continued success for all Kukui customers.”
KuKui partnership also benefits ASCCA members. “Because of the insight Kukui has gained through this partnership, we have been able to fine-tune our current and future product roadmaps to deliver products for ASCCA members that are exactly what they have asked for,” said Todd. “Also, participation in the ASCCA board affords Kukui the opportunity to add our voice to that of the ASCCA organization to protect the interests of all members. Additionally, Kukui pays any members annual state dues the year they join the Kukui family.”
Kukui has visited every chapter multiple times throughout their partnership and participates in chapter meetings either as a sponsor or a speaker. They do so as much as their schedule allows and will continue to do so throughout 2018.
When asked about a favorite moment while being an ASCCA partner, Todd replied “During the fires that devastated the Sonoma area, multiple ASCCA members were affected either with damages to their shops or homes. During that difficult, the entire ASCCA organization rallied together to raise money and support for all the affected families. It was an inspiring action.”
Thank you KuKui for your enduring commitment to ASCCA! Our organization and its members have benefited tremendously from your knowledge and dedication throughout the years.
