Examining the intersection between Washington politics and the auto retail industry.

Q&A With Global Automakers’ Don Stewart

During a crucial week for autos and trade, we sat down with Don Stewart, Global Automakers’ new Executive Vice President of Public Affairs, to talk tariffs, dealer engagement, and what exactly the Washington Nationals need to do to pull out of their spring slump.

Stew’s extensive experience on Capitol Hill (paired with a brief but unforgettable stint as a dealership ‘lot boy’) gives him a unique perspective on the auto  industry and what dealers can do to move the needle on issues important to them.
