Inside Spectrum Brands

Talent. Determination. Goodwill. Passion. These are the attributes that Ratchet+Wrench – the leading progressive media brand exclusively serving auto care center owners and operators – used to select their All-Star Award recipients. And this year, the winner of the Wild Card category is our very own Tammy Chaffee Tecklenburg, VP, Global Sales and Marketing Operations at Global Auto Care.

Tammy was nominated for her servant leadership and dedication to mentoring and developing women in the automotive industry. Her work in this area started when she joined the professional group Women in Auto Care eight years ago. She joined the executive board in 2014, and later that year, she led the Membership Committee in launching a mentor program and encouraging her industry peers to join her mission of developing the next generation.

In 2015, Tammy was recognized with the Auto Care Woman of the Year award. This industry award is presented annually to a woman who is a leader, mentor and role model who has made significant and outstanding contributions to the auto care industry.

In November 2016, Tammy became president of Women in Auto Care. Since Tammy came on as president, the group has ramped up its scholarship efforts to get more female technicians entering the aftermarket. Since 2004, the organization has given out $358,000 in scholarships to high school and post-secondary female students, 70% of which has been awarded during Tammy’s presidency.

Congratulations, Tammy! Thank you for everything you do to inspire and empower women at Spectrum Brands and throughout the automotive industry.
