In a move that might seem oddly appropriate for an aftermarket executive, Paul Foley is leaving his post as executive director of the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) to serve as executive director of the Golf Course Builders Association of America. Foley will take up the new position January 2, 2006. Bob McKenna, president and CEO of MEMA, announced the resignation and will serve as the interim president of AASA. He will immediately initiate a search to identify Foley’s replacement. “We are sorry to see Paul leave our industry, but wish him all the best in his new endeavour,” McKenna said. “His experience and enthusiasm have been the driving force in establishing AASA as the voice of the aftermarket supplier industry. He has been tireless in his efforts to provide our members with the services and programs they need to compete in today’s global marketplace.” Foley joined the MEMA in January 2001 as the association’s first vice president of aftermarket services and membership development. His duties were expanded in October 2002 to include serving as executive director of AASA.
