Trish Serratore has been named president of Automotive Youth Educational Systems (AYES). This is in addition to her role as president of the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF). Chuck Roberts has been named vice president of both organizations and will assume day-to-day operational responsibility. Roberts had been the AYES president and CEO for the last four years. Serratore has been with ASE since 1988. [AYES and NATEF both fall under the ASE umbrella].
Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO, called the change “a refocusing of roles and responsibilities” in order to better address the needs of industry partners and position the ASE Industry Education Alliance for growth. [The alliance is a group of organizations under the ASE umbrella consisting of ASE itself, NATEF, AYES, the North American Council of Automotive Teachers and the Automotive Training Managers Council].
“Trish and Chuck make an outstanding leadership team for the ASE Industry Education Alliance. These new roles will allow each to focus on specific areas, while organizing the alliance members into one, unified effort to enhance the automotive industry’s leadership in technical education,” Zilke explained.
