HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (Jan. 17, 2017) — Software provider Andreoli & Associates Inc. has hired Russ Carter, formerly general manager of Griffin Brothers Tire, to be its general manager.
In his new position, Mr. Carter will assume some duties previously handled by President Mike Andreoli, the Huntersville-based company said. Mr. Carter brings more than 25 years of experience in the tire and auto service industry, including 15 years with Griffin Brothers, and shorter stints with former tire wholesaler Target Tire and Firestone Tire's retail business.
Creating the new position will enable Mr. Andreoli to focus on product development and long-term business strategies.
"The hallmark of successful independent dealers is that they consistently provide personal relationship-based customer service," Mr. Andreoli said. "Our goal is to provide the data automation tools our clients need to support that 'personal service' competitive advantage approach that larger chain operations find challenging to emulate."
