NuVinAir Global, provider of patented vehicle-cleanliness solutions and revenue-generating platforms to automotive businesses, has announced the promotion of Troy Blackwell to chief operating officer. Having joined the company last August as senior vice president of global operations, he will continue reporting to Kyle Bailey, CEO and founder. In his expanded role, Blackwell is responsible for providing leadership and vision for the company’s customer programs, national accounts, operational controls, and franchisee success.

“Since joining NuVinAir earlier this year, I’ve gotten a real grasp on the company’s untapped growth potential, and my new role will enable me to scale our partnerships faster and more effectively,” said Blackwell. With nearly two decades of automotive-leadership experience, Blackwell most recently spearheaded a major brand extension at AutoNation, the largest automotive group in the United States. He previously worked for more than a decade at CarMax, the country’s largest used-car retailer and a Fortune 500 company, where he served as both regional sales development leader and general manager.
