• So maybe some politicians actually are car enthusiasts? ModBargains founder Mike Brown receives Congressional Recognition

      We spend a lot of time on this network complaining about government regulation in the automotive industry and how enthusiasts are unjustly (and sometimes illegally) targeted, fined, and controlled. This was most recently evident with the struggles BMS is having with CARB. We forget there are some politicians out there who actually are human beings who can relate to us and who appreciate bringing the community together through a mutual interest in this case one of automotive enthusiasm.

      Mike Brown of ModBargains.com has said automotive enthusiasm which I can vouch for after meeting him and is being recognized congressionally for it. Congressman John Campbell (serving his fifth term) awarded Mike Brown at the congressman's offices in Irvine, California recognition for Outstanding Business Leadership in the Automotive and Internet Space.

      To be perfectly honest this network was not aware that there was such a thing. It is great to see the government working with the automotive and internet sector positively and recognizing those who do so.

      Congratulations to Mike Brown and Modbargains.com. You have my vote Congressman Campbell.

      Automotive Industry Pioneer and CEO of ModBargains Receives Congressional Recognition from Congressman John Campbell

      LA HABRA, CA (April 21st, 2014) – ModBargains CEO and co-founder Mike Brown has been awarded special Congressional recognition for Outstanding Business Leadership in the Automotive and Internet Space by U.S. Congressman John Campbell at a ceremony at the Congressman’s offices in Irvine, Calif.

      Congressman Campbell is currently serving his fifth term in the U.S. House of Representatives. Prior to his election to public office, Campbell had a career spanning 25 years in the automotive industry representing numerous automobile brands, and was also an early member of the SEMA-supported State Automotive Enthusiast Leadership Caucus while serving in the California legislature.

      “It is an honor to receive this recognition from Congressman Campbell. In addition to helping companies like ours grow and succeed within his District, he is also a well known automotive enthusiast and supporter of SEMA”, explains Mr. Brown. “But more importantly he has supported local business and new industry innovations, which is what we have tried to achieve in the automotive parts and accessories industry, leveraging social media and Internet technologies to fill an important void in the market.”

      A pioneer in the automotive aftermarket industry, Orange County based ModBargains has used the Internet and popular social media channels like Facebook and YouTube to help address the fragmentation in the market. Providing what is essentially a digital information and knowledge-sharing platform for both its customers and manufacturers, the company has helped grow and redefine the market.

      Mr. Brown was selected for this prestigious recognition from the Congressmen based on his contributions to helping modernize the automotive parts and aftermarket industry via internet-based and social technologies. Through ModBargains, he was able to demonstrate the power of having real-time, two-way conversations that are enabled through modern social media platforms, and the resulting important benefits such as driving efficiencies in the market, and improving the relationship between business and consumer; or as in this case the automotive enthusiasts.

      “Our purpose at ModBargains is to share our expertise, experience, and enthusiasm in an effort to make the world a better place for automotive enthusiasts”, explains Mr. Brown.
