Tom Gallagher, Chairman and CEO of Genuine Parts Company, commented, "On behalf of the entire organization, we want to thank Jerry Nix for his 34 years of dedicated service to the Company, including the last 13 years as CFO.  His many contributions have been instrumental to the significant growth and strong financial performance of the Company over this time period and we wish him the very best for the future." 

Mr. Gallagher added, "We identified Carol for this role as part of our careful and deliberate succession planning process.  Her proven leadership and contributions over the years make her the right choice as the Company's next CFO.  During her long and successful tenure with the Company, Carol was promoted numerous times and elected Senior Vice President of Finance and Corporate Secretary in 2006.  Along the way, she developed a tremendous acumen for both the fundamental and financial aspects of the Company."  Prior to joining Genuine Parts in 1991, Ms. Yancey was a manager at Ernst & Young, LLP.
