Corey Bartlett, MAAP
Automotive Parts Headquarters, Inc.
Corey grew up in an aftermarket family, where his grandfather and dad were both very involved in the family business, Automotive Parts Headquarters, Inc. (APH). Following his time at Gustavus Adolphus College, Corey quickly became involved in all aspects of the family business—DC operations, corporate and independent stores, sales & marketing, and working to help APH grow and expand. He served as Executive Vice President until 2008, when he was named President. In 2016, he became President/CEO, and his father, John, serves as Chairman Emeritus. Since he began full-time in 2000, APH has quintupled in size—undertaking a number of acquisitions. Spending time with customers and suppliers continues to be a critical piece of Corey’s relationship-building approach.
Corey’s industry involvement includes the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, where he served three years as Chairman of the Board, The AWDA Board of Governors (former Chairman) and he’s the current Chairman of the Auto Care Association’s Board of Directors. He was awarded the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association’s inaugural Impact Award in 2010, and received the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association’s Pursuit of Excellence Award in November 2017.
He’s involved in the Central Minnesota community, as well… as a board member for a number of organizations, with the Saint Cloud Chamber, Junior Achievement and helping a variety of non-profits with their fundraising efforts.
