Stengel, II, currently president and COO, will succeed Donahue as president and CEO of GPC and will serve as a member of the board of directors.
      “The board is confident that Will is the right person to lead GPC into the future and that the company is positioned to continue delivering value to our customers and shareholders,” said John D. Johns, lead independent director of GPC’s board of directors. “During his tenure at GPC, he’s worked closely with Paul to shape the company’s strategic priorities and with the global leadership teams to evolve the business and deliver outstanding performance.”
      Stengel joined the company in 2019 as executive vice president and chief transformation officer with nearly two decades of leadership and professional experience. In 2021, he was promoted to serve as only the eighth president in the company’s history. His role expanded to president and chief operating officer in 2023.

Paul’s positive impact on GPC has been remarkable, and we look forward to his continued guidance as he transitions to his new role as executive chairman.” 
      “I am incredibly proud of all we have accomplished as One GPC team, and equally grateful for the 20+ years I have been privileged to work for this amazing company. As I transition from the CEO role, I am pleased to welcome Will as only the sixth CEO in our company’s 96-year history,” said Donahue. “I have every confidence in Will, our global leadership teams and our board of directors to deliver on our vision to be the leading global automotive and industrial parts distributor and solutions provider.”
