Hoosier Motor Club CEO to retire
The president and CEO of the AAA Hoosier Motor Club will retire in July, the organization announced Wednesday. Kirk Hendrix has led the club for the past 10 years, and a search has begun to find his successor.
Hendrix began his role as the club’s sixth president and CEO on March 1, 2013 following the retirement of his predecessor, Terry Farias. He previously served in the same role with the 500 Festival in Indianapolis.
The club said during his tenure, Hendrix led the introduction of new initiatives such as the My Pit Crew mobile tire service and the first electric vehicle to provide AAA roadside assistance.
“The growth we have experienced under Kirk’s leadership has been unprecedented,” Board Chair Steve Walker said in a news release. “His ability to lean into innovation and vision has launched us into the AAA of the future. We now have more products, more staff, and more services than ever before. We are prepared to meet the needs of members wherever they are.”
The club’s board of directors will oversee the process of selecting a new president and CEO, including hiring an executive search firm to conduct a national search.
The AAA Hoosier Motor Club employs 250 people in Indiana and has 400,000 members across 50 Indiana counties.
