University of Aftermarket Foundation Appoints New Board Member

Nov. 18, 2015

Nov. 18, 2015—Larry Sill, the recipient of the Jack Creamer Leader of the Year award, has been appointed to serve a one-year term on the University of the Aftermarket Foundation board of trustees, filling the lifetime trustee seat established in Creamer’s name.

Last month, the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, Automotive Distribution Network, Federated Auto Parts and National Pronto Association came together to donate $100,000 to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation in honor of Creamer, the former vice president of the chair who passed away in March. The combined donation reached the Lifetime Trustee contribution level, so it was decided that the winner of the Jack Creamer Leader of the Year award recipient would fill the seat established in Creamer’s memory.

Sills is the chairman and CEO of Standard Motor Products. The award was presented to him by the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA) on Nov. 1 in Las Vegas.

“The University of the Aftermarket Foundation congratulates Larry on his well-deserved award and welcomes him to our board of trustees,” said Tim Lee, chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation. “Larry’s knowledge, passion and commitment to the auto care industry are well known and I’m sure Jack would be pleased to know that Larry will be part of an organization that meant so much to him.”
