Charlie Edens new Executive Director or A.I.T.D.A.

July 15, 2015

With the retirement of Eddie Warrington after six years of service, the Board of Directors have tapped Charlie Edens to become the new Executive Director of the Arkansas Independent Tire Dealers Association.

Charlie brings over forty years of retail tire experience along with numerous positions on boards, including past positions with the AITDA as a board member and President. Charlie also served as a board member of the NTDRA and TANA.

Charlie is the founder of Sherwood Tire Pros in Sherwood Arkansas, and was active in the business until retiring in June of 2014. He still steps in to help out whenever he is needed.

His goal as Director is to increase dealer memberships. He will be traveling around the state visiting with current and potential dealers starting the end of July. He looks forward to getting out to visit the membership and will be asking for information to update the membership directory and dealer locator on the association website. The AITDA is fortunate to have great supplier and vendor associates. These relationships will continue to grow as the transition takes place.
