Tire Review is dedicated to the success of tire dealers serving the passenger, commercial, agricultural, specialty and off-the-road tire markets. Aichlmayr writes several feature articles for the monthly magazine as well as a regular column that focuses on business operations and management strategy. She also manages the Tire Review website. During her eight-year career as a trade journalist, Aichlmayr has written for several publications in the manufacturing, supply chain, trucking, warehousing, distribution and real estate arenas. She graduated summa cum laude from Baldwin-Wallace College with a degree in English. In her automotive advisory role, Aichlmayr will respond to questions from female consumers on automotive related topics via the website. The Ask Patty interactive advice blog launched May 22, 2006. “Knowing how to serve women customers is absolutely essential to the success of today’s tire dealer,” said Mary Aichlmayr. “Women represent a powerful force in the automotive industry, and their influence will only get stronger. Fully 65 percent of a typical tire dealer’s customer base is made up of women, yet most still report negative experiences when shopping for tires. That has to change for tire dealers to be successful in the long run.” Advertisement “Mary Aichlmayr has an understanding of the needs of women when it comes to a great buying experience in the automotive industry,” says Jody DeVere, president of Ask Patty. “Her experience with Tire Review will be invaluable to women consumers who come to Ask Patty for answers about their vehicles and dealership interactions.” According to DeVere, Ask Patty provides the safe environment for women to get advice and information needed to feel empowered and confident when they go to their local dealership for car service, repairs, maintenance and when they negotiate and purchase a new or used vehicle. Peter Martin, CEO of AskPatty.com adds, “Adding Mary to our Automotive Expert Panel is a great step for Ask Patty. It will allow us to expand our knowledge base to cover even more information about tires and the aftermarket world of the automotive industry.”last_img read more

Swollen cheek bone and black eye pending 🥴Best shot I’ve took hands down— Ellie Scotney (@elliescotney_) April 5, 2020 Scotney’s pro bow, long before rake-gate, was officially cancelled the day after her birthday, meaning she once again starved and trained herself down to make weight without the chance to shine.While completely aware the bigger picture is deadly serious, the Crystal Palace fan can only laugh at her own personal experiences during the lockdown.The 35-5 amateur said: “It was a bit of a nightmare because my birthday was on the Monday and we found out on the Tuesday, so I had done all the dieting and sacrificed another birthday for nothing.“When you are training and making weight all the time you rarely get to celebrate your birthdays and this one I will definitely remember missing.“In the back of my mind I was hoping somehow it would happen but when that call finally came it was horrible.”Super-bantamweight Scotney is managed by Adam BoothCredit: Instagram @elliescotney_Despite claiming to be a proud South Londoner, Scotney admitted the nationwide lockdown has allowed her to change one particularly dark element of her past.“I had never seen an episode of Only Fools and Horses before all of this,” she revealed.“I am a bit of a fake South Londoner, I have watched a couple now with my brother but I have still never had pie and mash either so I’m still a bit of a fraud.”Scotney felt her boxing style and personality never quite suited to the Team GB set-up in Sheffield and the axing of the 2020 Olympics has validated her decision to turn over early.First time watching Only Fools and Horses 🐎…I’m a fake South Londoner— Ellie Scotney (@elliescotney_) April 2, 2020Now the body-punch specialist can focus on putting bums-on-seats and cash in her pocket and convincing crowds to watch the women clash instead of hitting the bar.“You can probably tell from my nose that I like to get involved and trade a lot,” she said.“But there is more to it than that, the amateur game just was not working well for me and this was the time to start delivering now.“I would have been an idiot not to have the grabbed the opportunity because so many more doors are open for women now.“I have been in boxing crowds before when it has felt that everyone has gone to the bar to get a drink when the women have come on, but it feels like that is changing now thanks to people like Jane Couch, Katie Taylor and now Terri Harper.“And I want to carry that on and be a part of that now, it is exciting.”Hilarious video shows Scots man ‘boxing’ with Tesco plastic bagEllie Scotney is also proudly sponsored by Hi-Standard Scaffolding and JP Autos.  Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 Rebekah Vardy scores an impressive penalty in six-inch heels Source: Boxing – thesun.co.uklast_img read more
