The Nation­al Auto­mo­bile Deal­ers Association’s board of direc­tors has elect­ed For­rest McConnell, III, chair­man for 2014.

“I’m tru­ly hon­ored,” said McConnell, own­er of McConnell Honda/Acura in Mont­gomery, Ala., who rep­re­sents Alabama’s new-car deal­ers on NADA’s board. “I look for­ward to the chal­lenge.”

“Deal­ers are small Main Street busi­ness­es and pil­lars of their com­mu­ni­ties,” added McConnell, who is only the sec­ond deal­er from Alaba­ma to lead NADA. “One of the great­est chal­lenges we face is reg­u­la­tions that choke small busi­ness­es in Amer­i­ca.”

Bill Fox was elect­ed NADA vice chair­man. He rep­re­sents New York’s new-car deal­ers on NADA’s board, and is the own­er of Fox Deal­er­ships in Auburn, N.Y.

The elec­tion took place at NADA’s board meet­ing in San­ta Bar­bara, Calif. Col­orado deal­er Jeff Carl­son was elect­ed Sec­re­tary, and George Nahas, a deal­er in Flori­da, was elect­ed Trea­sur­er.

McConnell and Fox will take office at the 2014 NADA Con­ven­tion & Expo in New Orleans, which runs Jan. 24–27.

For­rest McConnell is pres­i­dent of McConnell Honda/Acura in Mont­gomery, AL. McConnell start­ed in the auto­mo­tive busi­ness wash­ing cars when he was 14 years old and then sell­ing cars when he was 16 at his family’s deal­er­ship, McConnell Chrysler/Honda in Mont­gomery. McConnell has been on the board of the Mont­gomery Cham­ber of Com­merce since 2005. McConnell has a bachelor’s degree from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Alaba­ma and a Juris Doc­tor degree from the Alaba­ma School of Law, both locat­ed in Tuscaloosa.
