Evening to mark WANADA CEO transition and spotlight DC area auto business

Thursday, May 29, New Marriott Marquis/Convention Center

WANADAês members along with other industry and community leaders, have been invited to celebrate 70 years of the automobile business in Washington when the association will mark the occasion of Gerard Murphy stepping out as WANADAês president and CEO on May 29, 2014 at the newly opened Marriott Marquis Hotel adjacent to the Washington Convention Center in downtown DC. Seventy years comes from the legacy Gerry Murphy has carried forward at WANADA in successively following his father, Mike, and grandfather, Richard, as CEO of WANADA.

Besides the program commemorating the Washington area auto business, a dance band will perform for those so inclined.

The current Murphy, whose tenure as chief executive officer at WANADA goes back to 1983, officially –passes the keys to the office” on July 1st to John OêDonnell who has been the organizationês executive vice president since 2006.

The special WANADA member reception and dinner will be the first event of its kind to occur in the new Marriott Marquis that opened last week as one of Washingtonês largest, most prestigious hotels and one that has been on the drawing board to service the Walter E. Washington Convention Center since it opened ten years ago. The W.E.WCC, of course, is the world class venue of The Washington Auto Show, which WANADA has effectively transitioned into the industry-wide event it has become as The Public Policy Show on the global auto show circuit.
