Andy Goodman, president and CEO of the Iowa-Nebraska Equipment Dealers Association was recognized by the North American Equipment Association Executives (NAEAE) for his 25 years of service representing equipment dealers. “For 25 years Andy has not only been a driving force for the dealers of Iowa and Nebraska, he has played a key role in the work and evolvement of NAEAE and the equipment industry as well,” said Kim Rominger, NAEAE president.
“As an original member of the Industry Relations Task Force, Andy brought integrity and professionalism to the boardrooms of major manufacturers and played a major role in improving communications and relationships with major manufacturers and shortliners,” added Rominger. “These efforts continue today largely due to Andy’s efforts and involvement. His talent, calmness in the storm and professionalism will certainly be missed.”
Goodman was recognized during his retirement celebration held at the Stine Barn in West Des Moines, Iowa on November 18, where industry peers, dealer-members, manufacturer representatives, INEDA staff and family gathered to honor and celebrate Andy and his contributions to the equipment industry.
