ALLDATA Europe has announced that its director of information insights and OEM relations, Matthew Wright, has been elected as a board member of the ADPA, the Independent Automotive Data Publishers Association.
The primary objective of this association is to ensure fair access to automotive technical information and establish a competitive framework for independent data publishers, such as ALLDATA Europe, and enabling choice to consumers in the care of their vehicle. These publishers provide reliable and affordable information, allowing vehicles to remain safe, sustainable and roadworthy.
Consequently, this allows publishers to create and deliver competitive, innovative, and multi-brand products and services to their customers. Currently, ALLDATA Europe offers authentic, like-for-like repair data from 36 vehicle manufacturers, encompassing a total of more than 118,000 vehicle combinations.
Matthew expressed his pride at being voted to the ADPA board, saying: “I am immensely proud to have been elected to join the ADPA board. ADPA membership represents a substantial portion of data publishers, whose contributions are crucial for the service and repair market’s competitiveness and professionalism across Europe.
“It is a great privilege to have been chosen by these members to continue the excellent work of ADPA, and, along with my fellow board members, ensure that we continue to work for the benefit of our industry and its valued customers.”
ALLDATA Europe managing director, Karol Englert, added: “On behalf of the entire company, we are incredibly proud of Matthew for becoming a board member of the ADPA. The organisation plays a vital role in advocating for data publishers, like ALLDATA Europe, in their ability to provide reliable, timely, and cost-effective repair and maintenance information to workshops.
“We know that Matthew will play an instrumental role in furthering this mission.”
ADPA president, Ralf Pelkmann, added: “Matthew is a great addition to ADPA board. Together, we will make sure that road mobility remains affordable, safe, and sustainable.”
