The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) has presented Bob Egan with the UAF Educational Advocacy Award.

This prestigious award recognizes an aftermarket leader for their dedication to the pursuit of excellence in education.

Egan served as chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation since 2017 and recently transitioned to the role of chairman emeritus. During his tenure, UAF saw record growth in the funding of scholarships and educational programs that pave the way for students to pursue and excel in careers in the aftermarket.

Egan retired from Federal-Mogul in 2015. During his esteemed 36-year career, he held a series of executive roles of increasing responsibility, most recently serving as senior vice president, sales and strategy. He played an instrumental role in the growth of Federal-Mogul, helping the company become one of the largest suppliers in the aftermarket.

Egan has been an active industry participant throughout his career. He served as chairman of the Auto Care Association, the Automotive Sales Council and the Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association and Business Forum.

In 2008, the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association recognized Egan as Leader of the Year.

“Bob has had a very impressive professional career, and he has been dedicated to the success of the aftermarket through his leadership of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation,” said Roger McCollum, AAP, chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation. “For the past six years, Bob has led UAF by example, actively participating in committees and reviewing countless scholarship applications each year. The UAF Educational Advocacy Award is rarely presented and there is no one more deserving to receive it than Bob Egan.”
