“Pressure is a privilege.” – Chris Bumstead Stacey Miller

Current role

I create strategies around elevating the profile and influence not only of the association, but the entire auto care industry to key audiences such as the mainstream media, Wall Street and legislators. Proudest professional accomplishment: Honestly, receiving this award this past summer beside industry professionals that I looked up to when first starting my journey here was absolutely surreal. It means so much to me to be recognized professionally for something that matters to me personally as well.

Years in the industry

I’ve been in the aftermarket over five years now and I always wanted to be here. Growing up as the child of poor immigrants, we had no choice but to buy used cars and fix them ourselves when they weren’t working properly. I can remember frequently going to an AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts to look up parts from a paper catalog to fix the family car so my parents could get to work. That was likely a big influence in my life, as I grew up loving cars and always has the desire to learn how to fix or modify them myself.
