“We are the only not-for-profit charity dedicated solely to helping automotive aftermarket industry members and their families in times of need, and have been doing so very quietly for over 55 years,” stated Aftermarket Foundation President, Mr. Robert (Bob) Hirsch. “Our Foundation is presently comprised of 29 Trustees, and over 250 supporting associations, corporations and individuals, each of which is committed to helping individuals within our aftermarket ‘family’, who have fallen on hard times due to catastrophic circumstances, with no place to turn for assistance.”

“In recent years,” Hirsch added, “we have adopted a number of programs to raise awareness of the Foundation, and as a result, demand is growing, we are expanding our reach, and meeting the needs of a broader-based and ever-growing number of individuals. We have determined that the time has come to appoint a full-time Executive Director, whose job it will be to co-ordinate and execute on all our programs of awareness and support.”

Since 1959, the Aftermarket Foundation has assisted individuals and families of the Automotive Aftermarket Industry that have fallen on hard times due to an unexpected death, catastrophic injury, serious illness, or financial hardship. Board members are called upon to assist in the fundraising efforts of the Foundation, and also to assist in the identification of those in need.

“This should be a challenging but enjoyable and rewarding position for the right candidate,” said Hirsch, “the Aftermarket Foundation is undergoing significant change, and an even further spread of its reach so; while there is much to do, the potential for achievement is fantastic, and should be appealing to interested candidates.”

The Foundation has established a Search Committee, and has retained the highly-respected Washington, DC-based Executive Search firm, Vetted Solutions, LLC., which specializes in association and nonprofit recruiting and consulting, to coordinate the search.

Individuals with executive capability and familiarity with the automotive aftermarket industry, who are interested in the position of Executive Director with the Aftermarket Foundation, are invited to make direct contact with Mr. James Zaniello at Vetted Solutions, by email at: [email protected] or by telephone at: 1-202-544-4749.
