ARA today announced that professional automotive recycler Nick Daurio of Daurio Auto Truck Inc. in Pueblo, Colorado was unanimously approved by the membership to join the Association Executive Committee as Secretary for 2020-2021. “It is my extreme pleasure to serve ARA as incoming Secretary,” said Daurio. “I am very humbled and honored to join such a great team of leaders alongside Scott Robertson, Marty Hollingshead, Shan McMillon and Jonathan Morrow.”
Daurio Auto Truck has been part of the Pueblo, Colorado community since 1957, when Nick’s father, John Daurio, entered the automotive business. In the fall of 1970, Daurio Auto Truck entered the automotive recycling industry. Nick started working full-time in 1975, joined five years later by his brother Michael, and the brothers continue to work together daily. In 2014 Nick’s son, Greg, joined the business and the third generation of Daurio Auto Truck began.
“At Daurio Auto Truck, Inc. our focus has always been teamwork,” said Daurio. “This approach is how we accomplish our goals. As an ARA Executive Committee member, I may be the face of our company, but our entire staff is excited and ready to learn and contribute.”
Daurio was formally confirmed by the ARA Board of Directors and Membership on November 6, 2020 during the Association’s Annual Membership Meeting. “Nick’s integrity, work ethic and approach to problem solving are qualities that really stand out,” said ARA President, Scott Robertson. “We are excited to welcome him to the team.”
“Nick like many of our members literally grew up working in his multi-generational family business,” added ARA Executive Director, Sandy Blalock. “I have worked with Nick both at the state and national levels, his insights from many years of experience working in our industry will be an asset to the leadership and members of ARA.”
