Welcome to Board Member McKenzie Spalding

ACRA would like to welcome McKenzie Spalding with Choice Auto Rental, Inc., as our newest board member.

McKenzie Spalding serves as the Director of Operations for Choice Auto Rental in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN. Choice Auto Rental focuses exclusively on insurance replacement rentals and meeting the need of this specific customer. With added services including the operation of a fleet of flatbed tow trucks, the company continues to offer innovative solutions to insurance companies and collision centers in Minnesota.

She is passionate about politics, and recently advocated on behalf of Minnesota’s consumers in need of a rental vehicle when involved in an insurance claim. In May 2011, Governor Mark Dayton signed into law this bill that requires insurance companies to provide the following advisory to their customers, “Minnesota law gives you the right to choose any rental vehicle company, and prohibits me from requiring you to choose a particular vendor.” Termed ‘commonsense legislation’ by Minnesota legislators, McKenzie was pleased to witness this bill being signed into law after a short 5 months of advocacy.

She serves on the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers – Minnesota’s Government Affairs Committee, and is active in legal and legislative issues that may affect the industry in Minnesota.

She graduated with a B.S in Marketing and Finance, and currently resides in Woodbury, MN with her husband Nicholas.
