Federated Auto Parts has promoted Sue Godschalk to president following the retirement of longtime CEO Rusty Bishop.

“Sue Godschalk has a long history of contributing to the success of Federated Auto Parts, from creating and managing processes and controls to providing valuable financial insight and management guidance,” said Larry Pavey, who has assumed the role of CEO of Federated.

During her 34-year career at Federated Auto Parts, Godschalk has held a number of management and financial roles of increasing responsibility, including office manager, assistant general manager, treasurer and most recently, vice president of the group.

Early in her career, she worked as a jobber store manager, learning the business from the ground up before joining Federated soon after it was formed.

“Sue has established tremendous trust with our members and is committed to continuous improvement in everything we do. She is the ideal person to take on the role of president of Federated. Her experience and leadership skills will provide a strong foundation for continued success well into the future,” said Pavey.

Said Godschalk: “I consider myself fortunate to have seen the growth of Federated firsthand throughout the years and to be able to work closely with such fine members, supplier partners and the great team at Federated headquarters.”
