Chevy dealer Alfirevich appointed to CATA board of directors

April 15, 2011
A Tinley Park dealer has been appointed to the CATA board to serve the remainder of the term of another director who resigned.
John Alfirevich of Apple Chevrolet will complete the term of Dan Roesch, who was elected to the three-year office in June 2009.
“We’re very excited to have John bring his insights and energy to the CATA so that they can be shared with the entire dealer body that the association represents,” said board Chairman Steve Foley Jr.
 Roesch stepped down from the board because of a new venture he embarked on with another CATA board member.
The CATA bylaws state that no dealers “who are partners or financial participants in the other’s automobile agency may serve concurrently as a Director of the Association.” Roesch and Ed Burke recently partnered to open the new Roesch Ford in Elmhurst. Burke, who also owns Naperville Jeep-Dodge in Lisle, has been on the CATA board since 2008.
Dealers can serve up to three three-year terms on the board, meaning Alfirevich will be eligible to run two more times beginning in 2012.
