Gaël Escribe called for a special support of NEXUS global suppliers operating in China in a context of flat growth in the local Automotive Aftermarket

Geneva, 2023, July 11th NEXUS Automotive International was delighted with the response to its 7th edition of Connecting Days, which took place from July 6th – 7th. During this annual event, Gael Escribe introduced the 130+ attendees from 80 companies to the latest trends. The two-day conference further enhanced relationships and created mutually beneficial opportunities.


During the event, the NEXUS’ CEO and his Chinese team presented a pro-active plan to enable NEXUS to deliver on its promise act as a growth accelerator with a target of 20% through such activities as the:

– N! Ambassador Program for creating more business in smaller cities,

– N! Choice Program to optimize digital sales and promotional activities,

– N! Academy WeChat to reinforce managerial and technical training.

Gaël Escribe is calling for uncompromising support from NEXUS partners at a time when the Chinese aftermarket is going through a complex and slow-growth period. Indeed, he is counting on this support to increase the compliance ratio within the N! network in China and to maximize the business opportunities for N! partners. This comes during a period when some of these partners are being weakened by the growing power of Chinese manufacturers and by a context of weak growth, caused by cautious or even weakened household consumption. These factors are in addition to the exponential rise of the EV car park and its implication on the local Aftermarket.

Gaël Escribe, CEO of NEXUS Automotive International said: “I am very happy to attended this event and to met our community again, especially after the COVID-crisis. These face-to-face meetings are crucial for our industry to be able to move ahead with the transformation and the emergence of new market players. To sum-up: “Help us, to help you!”
