The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) has welcomed Sanel NAPA Auto Parts/The Segal Family as a new lifetime trustee and thanks them for their generous support of the foundation in memory of the late George Segal.
Sanel NAPA is a distributor of auto parts, heavy-duty truck parts and body shop supplies with more than 48 store locations throughout New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine and Massachusetts.
“Our dad was very proud to have spent his career in the automotive aftermarket and he passed on his belief in education and appreciation for our industry to me and my brothers and sisters,” says Bobby Segal, CEO of Sanel NAPA Auto Parts. “My brother David and I felt there was no better way to honor our father’s memory than to give back to the industry that means so much to our family. By supporting the University of the Aftermarket Foundation as a lifetime trustee, we can help ensure a bright future for the aftermarket through education.”
The University of the Aftermarket Foundation lifetime trustee designation is reserved for exceptional donors who contribute $100,000 to $249,999 to support the foundation’s mission of providing scholarships and educational opportunities to the next generation of industry professionals. Bobby Segal will serve as the family’s representative on the University of the Aftermarket Foundation board of trustees.
“On behalf of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation, we thank Sanel NAPA and the Segal family for their generous contribution,” says Bob Egan, MAAP, chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation. “The Segals have always been very active in the industry, volunteering their time and expertise to aftermarket initiatives, and we are grateful that they have chosen to support the important work of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation.”
