NORCROSS, Ga. — Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists L.L.C. (AWRS) has hired a pair of auto aftermarket veterans, Jason Yarborough and Mike Perkins, to fill key management positions.
Mr. Yarbrough, a former Alloy Wheel Repair franchise owner, will assume the role as franchise relations manager, and Mike Perkins, who's worked with three tire companies, becomes director of business development.
Both positions are new.
AWRS said their additions are key to the overall growth and success of the company, which calls itself the world's largest full-service alloy wheel repair and replacement company with 166 franchised and company-owned locations operating in 46 states throughout the U.S.
Mr. Yarbrough has been an AWRS franchise owner in Birmingham, Ala., since 2005. In his new position, he will be the bridge between AWRS corporate and franchisees with focused efforts on maintaining a transparent dialogue that nurtures a positive relationship.
