LKQ Corporation Appoints Sukhpal Singh Ahluwalia to Its Board of Directors

Ahluwalia is a leading figure in the European aftermarket auto parts industry.

LKQ-logoLKQ Corporation announced that it has appointed Sukhpal Singh Ahluwalia to its Board of Directors effective November 10, 2014.

“I am pleased to welcome Sukhpal back to LKQ,” said Joseph M. Holsten, chairman of LKQ Corporation. “His entrepreneurial dynamism, deep understanding of the European aftermarket auto parts industry and extensive contacts will benefit LKQ’s European segment.”

Ahluwalia is a leading figure in the European aftermarket auto parts industry. He is the founder and former managing director of Euro Car Parts Ltd. (ECP), the leading distributor of automotive aftermarket
parts in the United Kingdom.

LKQ acquired ECP in October 2011 and, under Ahluwalia’s leadership and the support of LKQ, ECP continued its rapid growth. Ahluwalia resigned from LKQ earlier this year to focus on his private commercial interests including investments in the hospitality and commercial property sectors. In addition to joining the Board of Directors of LKQ Corporation, Ahluwalia will also serve as chairman of LKQ’s operations in the United Kingdom.

“I am both delighted and honored to accept the invitation to be a member of the LKQ board and to re-join my many friends and colleagues at LKQ on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Ahluwalia. “There are many opportunities in our marketplaces, and LKQ is well-positioned to continue its growth in Europe. I look forward to playing a role in this growth.”
