The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) has appointed Interstate Batteries' Vice President of Sales Shannon McWilliams to its board of trustees.

AACF Executive Director Joel Ayres says, "Shannon's experience in sales and marketing will be of great value to the board of trustees. "Soon he will step into the role of chair of the AACF marketing committee, and we are eager to share the new ideas and energy he will bring to that committee."

Prior to joining the Interstate Batteries team, McWilliams held various executive roles with a focus on driving corporate strategy, sales leadership and product development with Mistral Equity Partners, Capstreet and Westar Capital. He has extensive experience in the automotive aftermarket with Stanley Black & Decker, Mac Tools, Proto and several other hand tool businesses that focused on technicians and shop performance.
