The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) has appointed Jon Ownes as the new president of the foundation's Board of Trustees.
Owens was a national sales manager at Epicor Software Corp. and brings over two decades of experience to his new role.
“I’m very much looking forward to working with our fantastic board and executive committee, and our executive director, Joel Ayres, in leading us to extend our reach across the entirety of the aftermarket and help aftermarket families affected by unforeseen tragedy,” says Owens.
“I am humbled to take on the role of president of this fantastic foundation, the longest-running charitable organization in the aftermarket, and follow in the footsteps of the many great leaders before me. Not the least of which is our current president and the man I will be succeeding, Larry Magee.”
“As I approach the conclusion of my term, the foundation has been fortunate to identify several exceptional candidates capable of assuming the role as president,” says Magee.
“I am extremely pleased that Jon Owens was selected as president as he certainly has the leadership skills, industry knowledge as well as contacts, passion and desire to successfully lead the Foundation into the future.”
Other officers of the foundation have been appointed including Luanne Brown as vice president; Ross Kegel as secretary; and George Afremow as treasurer.
