Atlantic Tire COO gives back to kids

March 31, 2011

Amy Alexander, chief operating officer of Atlantic Tire & Service, has been elected to serve a two-year term as treasurer of the Futures for Kids (F4K) board of directors.

The three-store dealership, based in North Carolina, has won numerous awards for its community service activities. Alexander says she plans to continue those philanthropic efforts in her new role.

“I’m honored to have been elected to serve on the F4K statewide board and will work diligently to bring my corporate experience in banking and now as COO with Atlantic Tire to my treasurer role."

As a North Carolina native growing up in Hillsborough, Alexander developed a passion for children and education fueled by her parents’ philanthropic nature. Her mother and father were house parents to orphaned children at the Crossnore School for Children, and her father served on the Orange County Board of Education.

Alexander manages a variety of activities at Atlantic Tire & Service, including human resources, accounting, marketing and public relations. She joined the company in 2007. She began her career in the banking industry in 2000 as a branch manager, and has worked for both Capital Bank and Central Carolina Bank.

Atlantic Tire & Service was started in 1998 by owner Anthony Blackman. For more information, visit
