The Certified Auto Parts Association (CAPA) has announced the election of Ben Kelley, Center for Auto Safety (CAS), to its board. CAS, one of the original founders of CAPA more than 25 years ago, has been a longstanding supporter of the association.
Kelley has worked in the field of injury control for more than 40 years as an educator, researcher, author, policy expert and historian. A former official of the U.S. Department of Transportation, he was a principal architect of the vehicle safety research and communications program of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, where he served as a senior vice president for 15 years. He has frequently offered congressional and public testimony concerning injury prevention.
Kelley currently divides his time between teaching, consulting and writing about injury prevention. He also is director, injury control policy of the Trauma Foundation and a board member of the Public Health Advocacy Institute at Northeastern University. In the past, he has served as a visiting faculty member and guest lecturer at Tufts University School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health, Yale Medical School, Wisconsin Medical School and the University of California at Davis.
“Ben brings an extraordinary amount of consumer knowledge and safety expertise to CAPA’s board," said Jack Gillis, CAPA’s executive director. "We are excited to have Ben join CAPA’s efforts as we enter our second quarter-century of protecting both the market and consumers from poor quality parts."
