ST. JOHNS, Fla. — Skip Potter, executive director of the National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF), plans to retire Aug. 31 after five-plus years at the head of the organization.
NASTF Board Member Donny Seyfer, co-owner of Seyfer Automotive of Wheat Ridge, Colo., will assume duties as interim executive while the foundation seeks a replacement for Mr. Potter.
NASTF Chair Steve Douglas lauded Mr. Potter for his "hard work, professionalism and can-do attitude" that resulted in the largest membership growth in NASTF's history, expansion of the vehicle security registry and resolution of countless information requests.
"Skip has worked tirelessly over half a decade to serve not only NASTF but also the entire automotive industry," Mr. Douglas said.
Mr. Potter served more than 45 years in many segments of the automotive industry, including parts distribution, tool sales, service, the motorsports press and the industry's not-for-profit sector.
