NTDA appoints first ever chairman from the aftermarket

Roger Griggs hands over to Prashant Chopra

Published:  26 June, 2017

The National Tyre Distributors Association (NTDA) has appointed the first ever national chairman to come from the aftermarket since the organisation’s inception in 1930.

Prashant Chopra, Managing Director of Autogem Invicta Ltd was named as the new national chairman at the NTDA AGM, held on 7 June at Automechanika Birmingham.

NTDA chief executive Stefan Hay believes the appointment illustrates the changing make-up of the organisation: “Prashant adds a whole new dimension as his company is an aftermarket supplier member of the Association, which in itself is an indication of how the NTDA is rapidly becoming an association for both tyre professionals and the associated autocare aftermarket, where, over the past three years, we have experienced incredible membership growth.”

Prashant takes over from Roger Griggs, communications director of European Tyre Enterprises Ltd, who has served for an extended period of three years in order to support the implementation and execution of the three year strategic plan introduced by Stefan Hay in 2014.
