Donny Seyfer of Seyfer Automotive in Wheat Ridge, Colo. has been sworn in as chairman of the Automotive Service Association (ASA).
Seyfer took the helm at the association’s annual business meeting April 21 at the Westin Crystal City Hotel in Arlington, Va.
“I am very excited about where ASA is going,” he said. “We’re in the midst of reorganizing our business model, and we are building up our industry relationships and want to get more members involved in the association,” said Seyfer, whose father, Don Seyfer, served as chairman of ASA from 1996-1997.
Dan Risley, ASA president/executive director said, “With more than 40 years of experience in the collision industry, Darrell brought valuable insight to the leadership of ASA during his two years as chairman. We remain profoundly grateful for his contributions to ASA, as well as the automotive industry in its entirety. We wish him all the best in his next endeavor.”
The Automotive Service Association’s new board of directors began their term at the close of the annual business meeting. Serving two-year terms on the board are Seyfer; Darrell Amberson of LaMettry’s Collision Inc., Minneapolis, Minn., as immediate past chairman; and Roy Schnepper of Butler’s Collision Inc., Roseville, Mich., as chairman-elect.
Bill Moss of EuroService Automotive in Warrenton, Va., was nominated to serve a one-year term as secretary/treasurer. His move into the secretary/treasurer role leaves a general director vacancy that will be filled at a later date.
Ed Cushman of C&H Foreign Auto Repair in Spokane, Wash., was elected to serve a two-year term as general director.
Bob Wills of Wills Auto Service in Battle Creek, Mich., begins the second year of his two-year term as Mechanical Division director; and Scott Benavidez was elected to a two-year term as Collision Division director.
Risley also serves on the ASA board of directors in an ex-officio capacity.
ASA’s next national event is the NACE | CARS 2015 expo and educational conference in Detroit July 23-25, held in conjunction with several other industry events throughout the week.
