TEQUESTA, Fla. – The Executive Committee of the Aftermarket Foundation announced today that in order to meet growing needs within the automotive aftermarket industry, it is commencing a hiring search for a full-time executive director.

“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 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.”

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.”
