“On behalf of the entire organization, we want to thank Carol for her 30 years of dedicated service to GPC, including the last nine years as CFO,” said Chairman and CEO Paul Donahue. “Carol’s leadership and numerous contributions have been instrumental to the significant growth and strong financial performance of the Company. She has also been a mentor to many, and her positive influence will have a lasting impact on generations of professionals across the GPC organization. Carol will be greatly missed, and we wish her all the best in her retirement.”
