"Aaron's has been honored to support Warrick Dunn Charities for the past decade where we've furnished hundreds of homes through the Homes for the Holidays program," said Ronald W. Allen, Aaron's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "We're proud of Chad's appointment to the Warrick Dunn Charities Board of Directors and consider this a reflection of our deep commitment to this organization and its mission to help single parents achieve financial independence and stability through home ownership."

Strickland has served in a variety of roles during his career at Aaron's from Senior Legal Counsel in Employment to the Vice President of Employee Relations.  In 2010, he was tasked with creating a best-in-class centralized human capital function for the 12,000+ employee-member company.

"Aaron's is committed to Warrick Dunn Charities and to the hundreds of families whose lives are changed through this organization's efforts," said Strickland. "Working with WDC supports my professional passion of helping our associates understand how their work impacts not only the company, but the communities in which we live and serve."

"The partnership with Aaron's has led to a tremendous impact on the families we have served over the past decade and we are now excited to welcome Chad to the Warrick Dunn Charities Board," said Warrick Dunn, founder of Warrick Dunn Charities and former NFL running back. "Chad and I actually enjoyed successful college careers during the same years at Florida State University, so it's great to bring a fellow alumnus onto the Board.  It's also energizing to see corporate involvement at Aaron's level of commitment, not only at the outreach level, but by lending strategic expertise through active board membership."
