"I am extremely pleased with the choice of Nick Zarcone as the new CEO. Nick has been our Chief Financial Officer since March 2015 and has been an integral part of the LKQ story since he led the team at Baird that took us public in 2003," said Joseph M. Holsten. "We are profoundly grateful to Rob Wagman for his dedication and commitment during more than 18 years with LKQ. We look forward to Rob's counsel as a consultant on a part-time basis while he addresses his health considerations. In addition, I will be taking on an increased role at the Company and we will collectively remain focused on our business in view of the long history of the three of us working together."Nick Zarcone stated: "It has been a privilege to be associated with the Company for the past 14 years, and I look forward to continuing to work with the nearly 40,000 talented people at LKQ as we pursue our mission to be the leading global value-added wholesale distributor of vehicle parts and accessories."
