“The shareholders of ACCC appointed Len chief executive officer at our recently held shareholders meeting,” said Will Tolerton, president of Terry’s Tire Town and a board member since 1998. “This appointment demonstrates the shareholders’ faith and confidence in Len as our leader. We must have one voice to communicate and execute the will of our organization, and Len is that person”.
“Len continues to provide exceptional leadership for our members and when dealing with our suppliers, who are critical partners as we continue to grow our dealership base nationwide,” said Pat Hietpas, executive vice president of U.S. Tire and Exhaust and a board member since 1997.
“Len’s promotion to CEO is a reflection of the shareholders’ confidence in his ability to lead ACCC. In working closely with Len, I see that same confidence is shared by the suppliers with whom we do business,” stated John Boyle, president of Englewood Tire and outgoing chairman of the board.
