AAAA Annual General Meeting – New Board Members Welcomed

The Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA) is pleased to welcome two new directors to the AAAA Board.

A number of respected industry leaders were nominated for the four available 2022 Board positions, including two existing directors. After a strong voter turnout, the new Board appointments were formally announced at the 42nd AAAA Annual General Meeting, held on the 24th October in Brisbane.  

The successful candidates elected to the Board for a three-year term were:

  • Mark Pedder – Director at Pedder’s Suspension
  • April Harwood – Chief Sales Officer at JAX Quickfit Franchising Systems
  • Colette Kirby – Chief Executive Officer at Logicar Australia
  • Craig Baills – Owner at Highfields Mechanical.

“We are extremely fortunate to have such an impressive selection of industry leaders  offer their services for the betterment of our industry. I wish to congratulate Mark and Craig on their re-election to the Board, and provide a warm welcome to April Harwood and Colette Kirby,” said Stuart Charity, CEO of the AAAA.

“With more nominations than AAAA Board positions available, some candidates were unfortunately not successful this year. I want to thank and acknowledge Peter Tippner, Daniel Maguire and Dale Durden for their nominations.

“I’d also like to thank retiring Directors Craig Magill and Graham Scudamore-Smith for their outstanding service on the Board. It was fitting that this AGM was held in Brisbane where we had the opportunity to pay tribute to Graham on his 18 years of service on the Board – a phenomenal effort filled with so many achievements.

“With fresh faces on the AAAA Board comes new perspectives, skills and opportunities. I look forward to working with the Board to strategically position ourselves to protect and promote our great industry, and demonstrate exceptional value for our members into the future,” said Stuart.
