AIA Canada has appointed two new senior management team associates—Linda Donnini as Vice President Member Relations, and Sean Corcelli as Executive Director, Alberta Division—two very experienced aftermarket individuals.
Donnini has over 15 years of aftermarket experience having had senior positions at NAPA Auto Parts and Uni-Select. She has extensive knowledge and years of experience in creating added value for customers and clients.
“Being passionate about the automotive aftermarket, I am excited to be joining such a dynamic team to represent all the players in this important market in Canada,” said Linda Donnini. ” I look forward to working with all stakeholders involved to ensure continuous engagement and value.”
Sean Corcelli is a veteran of the aftermarket… having begun his career with Acklands (later Acklands-Grainger) and moving to Uni-Select when they purchased Acklands-Grainger. He retired in 2017 as Regional Vice President, Prairies Division and is a long-time dedicated AIA member.
“My objective as executive director, Alberta Division shall be to support our very able Northern and Southern Division volunteers,” said Sean Corcelli. “I hope to play an integral role in the formation of the Automotive Service Associate Program (ASAP) within AIA Canada.”
“Both Linda and Sean will bring years of industry experience to AIA Canada,” said President Jean-François Champagne, AIA Canada. “They come with an already well developed network of contacts and partnerships within the aftermarket. They know the game and they know the players. They will be invaluable assets to the Association and its members.”
With this new structure, AIA Canada will focus on its membership engagement and expand its reach in the ever-changing automotive environment with all stakeholders, all the while identifying future member programs and services.
