The Car Care Council Women’s Board (WB) has named Deborah Bjorklund as its Aftermarket Woman of the Year. The eighth annual award, which recognizes exceptional women in the aftermarket with an emphasis on dedicated service, was presented at the WB award reception on Nov. 1 during AAPEX.

Bjorklund is president of The Main Resource (TMR), a manufacturer and distributor of aftermarket parts to repair shops. TMR also provides parts and accessories to the auto equipment industry. Since she purchased the company in 2005, it has doubled in size. Prior to TMR, she worked at Will-Fix Automotive for 17 years.

“Our Women’s Board ‘Aftermarket Women of the Year’ awards are a way for us to applaud exceptional women in the aftermarket for their dedicated service, as well as to recognize women who are going above and beyond to make a difference in the industry,” said AAA’s Ruth Ehlinger, president of the Car Care Council Women’s Board.
