Ken Hendricks is joining the Automotive Recyclers of Canada (ARC) Board of Directors as one of the representatives from BC.
Ken currently serves as the Senior Advisor to the Automotive Retailers Association (ARA). He has had over 10 years of progressive employment with the ARA, joining originally as the Divisional Coordinator for the BC Auto Recyclers (BCAR) – a position he has kept to this day. Ken also represents other ARA divisions such as towing and recovery, licensed motor dealers and the mechanical repair division.
Ken’s affiliation with the ARA goes back to its roots. Ken is a third-generation ARA member. His grandfather Ed Meyers, a Ford Dealer on Vancouver Island, was one of the founding members in the early 1950s. His father Ed Hendricks served as ARA President 1994-1998 and Chairman 2011-2015.
Ken has spearheaded and managed many industry development projects including development of a training and recycling certification program for the auto recycling and towing industries and has managed several WorkSafeBC sponsored projects focused on providing occupational health and safety resources and developing guidelines for the automotive industry.
Ken joins Jim Lebrun from Powerhouse Recycled Auto & Truck Parts as the two representatives to the ARC Board from BC. Each provincial association that makes up ARC has two representatives on the ARC Board of Directors.
