NAFA’s annual meeting features educational elements, a trade show and networking possibilities. Grady will join executives from the Big Three automakers in delivering addresses. Robert A. Lutz, vice chairman of General Motors, and Mark Fields, executive vp of Ford Motor Co., will also speak. Each man will keynote on consecutive days of the event.
“NAFA is thrilled to have Mr. Grady round out its slate of keynote speakers for the 2010 I&E,” said Phillip E. Russo, NAFA’s executive director. “Peter’s long and varied history with Chrysler, across the United States and across the globe, gives him a unique perspective that will be invaluable for all fleet managers. Plus, his leading role in Chrysler’s recent reorganization will enable him to speak on a number of subjects of interest to NAFA membership.”
Grady began his career at Chrysler in 1984 as a district sales manager of American Motors Corp. He oversees the company’s fleet sales organization and Chrysler’s dealer network.
The 2010 Institute & Expo marks the first time in more than 20 years that NAFA has held its annual conference in Detroit.
