Jim Butler
Butler's Auto Recycling, Inc., Florida

If you pair vision with passion, you're likely to come up with Jim Butler, named UpFront's 2006 Most Influential Analyst. As vice president of Butler's Auto Recycling in Pensacola, Fla., Butler maintains a clear vision of the industry and strives to take it to the next level.

"I've known him for five years," said Damon Davis of R & R New Parts & Salvage, who serves on the ARA CAR and ARA Events Committees with Butler. "He's very active in the associations and he's very passionate about what he does."

Butler is a past president of the Florida Auto Dismantlers & Recyclers Association (FADRA). Not only does he bring his experience to the industry, but brings the industry back to his business.

"Jim is a man very much involved in the direction that the automotive recycling industry is headed," said Robbin Holloman at Butler. "He always makes sure that everything is done right and in proper order. He has taught me how the recycling industry works and can save the environment."

Fellow Florida recycler Steve Holland of Brandon Auto Salvage said, "Jim is an unselfish person that puts his time and effort into what he does. He volunteers when asked and puts forth an honest effort to do the job to the best of his ability. Thanks Jim for all you have done for your associations."
