NASHVILLE, TN (12.07.2017) – The Elite Distributor Alliance welcomes Jim Warren as its new Executive Director effective January 1, 2018.

Jim is currently finishing his transition as Vice President of Merchandising at Car Toys, a Seattle based specialty chain.

President Josh Eatherly said, “The addition of Jim Warren is another positive step in the growth of the EDA. Jim’s background in merchandising and over 35 years of Mobile Electronics expertise will ensure a smooth transition. We are excited to hit the ground running immediately. It is bittersweet as this comes with the announcement of Ray Windsor’s retirement. Ray has been an integral of the EDA from day one and we would not be where we are today without him.”

“As I move toward retirement, I look back at the evolution of the EDA. We established the first ever 12volt distributor buying group and in two and a half years, we have matured rather well. I am confident the members are focused on the mission and very capable of achieving same. Jim Warren brings a perfect skill set to that endeavor,” commented Ray Windsor.
