Nov. 1, 2021, LAS VEGAS—Automotive Service Association Vice President Tony Molla has announced his retirement. 

Molla was briefly honored during Monday’s MSO Symposium at Mandalay Bay. Molla will officially leave his position at the end of the calendar year.

Molla has spent the last six years in his current role with ASA. Prior to that, he spent 15 years as the vice president of communication for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. 

In a previous conversation with Ratchet+Wrench, Molla emphasized that he made the decision during the summer, independent of ASA’s recent changes and announcements.

In October, ASA announced a change to its membership model that would dissolve the current regional structure. It was met with scrutiny and has caused some shakeups within the association, including several regional affiliates to disaffiliate and join the Midwest Auto Care Alliance group. 

Molla also praised newly promoted vice president of regional service Blair Calvo, who he felt was equipped to help begin the process of modernizing ASA in his absence.
