The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) has welcomed Lynn Parker as president of its board of directors following Bob Hirsch who has served as board president for the past 10 years.
“Serving AACF and aftermarket families in need continues to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my life,” said Parker. “I am honored and humbled to be elected as AACF board president. I’m eager to make a meaningful contribution in this role, and extend sincere gratitude to Bob Hirsch for his many years of service.”
Parker is the vice president of merchandising for Pep Boys and has served as an active AACF board member for nearly 15 years. He also has contributed to the development of a number of committees to foster growth of executive leadership, events and client programs.
Charles “Chuck” Rogers also joins the board as a newly elected trustee. Rogers is the vice president of professional sales for O’Reilly Auto Parts and has actively supported AACF events for nearly 15 years. In his new role, Rogers will assist the organization in reviewing applications for assistance.

We’re excited to see what we can accomplish together.”
