“I am honored and excited to be nominated as the Board Chair of MEKO, a company with a great history and strong market positions. As I am leaving my operational engagement as CEO of LKQ in June of 2024, this will afford me the time needed to focus on MEKO. If I am elected, I look forward to working with the management team and the rest of the board to create a balanced operational excellence program focused on organic revenue growth, enhanced margins, and improved returns on capital,” stated Dominick Zarcone, President and Chief Executive Officer of LKQ Corporation.
