• The VW Group visits NEMPA

    NEMPA isn’t often visited by carmakers unless they have a formal presentation to make, but when five people from VW’s national communications team stopped by one evening after Thanksgiving, it really was simply to meet, greet and socialize.

    More than two dozen NEMPA members, representing print, radio and TV media across New England and the nation, were able to talk, one on one, with Scott Vazin, VW’s VP of Brand Communications, Leigh Anne Sessions and Corey Proffitt, both Product Communications Specialists, West Coast Communications Manager Darryll Harrison and Product & Technology Manager Mark Gillies.

    Afterward Vazin said, “The evening was an opportunity for the Volkswagen team to reacquaint themselves with the NEMPA members. We walked away impressed by their professionalism, high caliber of media and camaraderie. It’s clear we underestimated the importance of this group and plan more engagement in the future.”

    NEMPA and VW both thank Automotion for hosting the evening. The company not only threw open its headquarters as a unique meeting place, but also laid out a fine spread of pizza, antipasti, drinks and deserts.
