“On behalf of the entire board, I am very pleased to welcome these three high-caliber executives to the board of the foundation”, stated Hirsch. “We already have a very strong Board and the addition of Tony Bartholomew, Murray Sullivan and Brent Windom will further strengthen our board and broaden its reach within our industry sector. We thank them for their willingness to serve for the common good of the less fortunate in our industry.
To the foundation's motto, ‘We take care of our own,’ he added: “These new board members have demonstrated tremendous capability and achievement in their respective careers to date, and we know that the foundation will benefit from their skill and commitment as we continue ‘taking care of our own.’”
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 identification of those in need.
