WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. — The National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) has hired Holly Wolfe, a former member of the Automotive Service Association (ASA) staff, to be its managing director, tasked with spearheading the group's outreach initiatives and liaising with other trade associations and industry stakeholders in Washington, D.C.
A former Capitol Hill staffer, Ms. Wolfe got her start in automotive policy in 2014 at the ASA, serving as legislative analyst and government affairs manager. During her four-year tenure there, Ms. Wolfe directed association-wide lobbying events, managed educational programs in multiple cities and acted as an advocate for the independent repair industry at the federal and state level.
She has run her own company, Wolfe Strategies L.L.C., for the past year.
NASTF Executive Officer Donny Seyfer said adding someone of Ms. Wolfe's caliber to the NASTF management team "will significantly expand NASTF's ability to respond to requests for information and assistance."
Ms. Wolfe noted: "New technologies are revolutionizing the way we think about transportation. With so much change on the horizon, I'm looking forward to joining NASTF in its mission to streamline industry collaboration."
She also will oversee the communications and heavy-duty teams.
The NASTF was established in 2000 to identify, communicate and resolve gaps in the availability and accessibility of automotive service information, service training, diagnostic tools, and equipment for the benefit of automotive service professionals and their customers.
