AOCA Exec Director Resigns

David Saddler, executive director of the Automotive Oil Change Association, has resigned from the organization effective March 2. Saddler had been with AOCA less than two years; he replaced Steve Christie, who manned the helm of the lube industry’s only dedicated trade organization for some 16 years.

Here’s the full text of the release from AOCA:

“David Saddler has resigned as Executive Director of the Automotive Oil Change Association (AOCA) in order to pursue other opportunities. His duties will be assumed on an interim basis by an Executive Management Committee, consisting of AOCA Board members Rick Murphy, Ricky E. Price, and Pat Wirth.

“AOCA Board President Chris Tolsdorf said the emphasis will be on continuity during the transition.

“‘Dave helped the organization through an important period in its growth, and we wish him well in his future plans,’ Tolsdorf said. ‘With active participation from the Board, as well as the ongoing efforts of AOCA staff, we’ll continue to expand the organization and become an even greater resource for our members.'”

More to come, I’m sure.
