We know this is a challenging time for many businesses. The rapidly changing landscape has all of us adjusting to this new reality and figuring out how to adapt our business operations while prioritizing the well-being of our team, customers and communities.

Today, when I think about the Import Vehicle Community and the challenges our industry has faced, three words best come to mind: optimism, fortitude, and resilience.

Our unwavering optimism that says today’s challenges will be met with more opportunities tomorrow.

Our fortitude that pushes us through this dynamic situation because we know there are better days just around the corner.

And our resilience tells us that no matter what gets thrown our way, we will continue to find new ways for our businesses to grow and thrive.

We know the strength of our community will carry us through this unprecedented challenge. Wishing you all good health.
