MILWAUKEE (June 5, 2013) — Roy W. Olivier, president and CEO of ARI Network Services Inc., a provider of website, software and data solutions for tire dealers, distributors, and manufacturers, has been named a 2013 Industry Leader by Powersports Business magazine.
"I'm excited to have been recognized as one of the four 2013 Industry Leaders by Powersports Business," Mr. Olivier said. "It's an honor to be included with this group of individuals that have such a commitment, drive and passion for what they do and this industry,"
Dave McMahon, editor-in-chief of Powersports Business, said that under Mr. Olivier's guidance, "ARI's acquisition of 50 Below doubled the company's website business and maintained the viability of an industry brand that dealerships rely on for growth every day."
Winners will be recognized at the Powersports Business Institute during the American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo), which ARI said is scheduled for Oct. 16-20 in Orlando, Fla.
The May 27 edition of Powersports Business includes more than four pages of coverage devoted to the winners.
Late last year Milwaukee-based ARI acquired out of bankruptcy the retail assets of Web solutions provider 50 Below Sales & Marketing Inc., saying it would be a key element to its strategy to tap into the automotive aftermarket.
