The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) today announced the appointment of Marko Ibrahim to its board of trustees. 

“AACF is pleased to welcome a caring and successful executive like Marko to the board,” said Lynn Parker, board president. 

Marko Ibrahim is the vice president of store operations at Bridgestone Retail Operations (BRSO). Ibrahim has served as an executive for many large retail chains over the past 18 years. 

“I’m incredibly honored to serve AACF as a board member,” Ibrahim said. “Our company has been a long-time supporter of AACF, and some of our employees have been helped through AACF grants. I’m especially looking forward to helping AACF achieve its goals because of that, and will contribute in any way I can.” 

Founded in 1959 to assist members of the automotive aftermarket and their families, AACF has distributed millions of dollars to help industry families in times of great need. 

"Terrible accidents or catastrophic illness can occur suddenly, and can drastically alter the life of a family," said Joel Ayres, executive director of AACF. "AACF is ready to step in to help. AACF is often contacted after all available resources have been exhausted. That's when we fulfill our mission: To Provide Sustainable Solutions for Those in Great Need.”
