ASA Appoints Dan Risley Interim Executive Director
Dan Risley has been named interim executive director by ASA. The announcement comes following Ron Pyle’s decision to step down as president and chief staff executive. Pyle joined the national staff in July 2002 and assumed the role of president in November 2002.
Risley, who joined ASA in March as executive vice president, said, “I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve an association with the storied history of ASA. The ASA board of directors is committed to strengthening the association through open communication and collaboration. I intend on helping them fulfill that commitment.”
“Dan’s leadership and presence within the auto repair industry are just a few of the underlying reasons we believe he is a perfect complement to ASA,” said Darrell Amberson, AAM, ASA chairman and vice president of operations at LaMettry’s Collision in Minneapolis. “The board looks forward to collaborating with him and leveraging his strengths to better the association and the value our membership receives.”
Risley, who has served the industry in many roles throughout his career, came to ASA after six years at Allstate Insurance Co. where he was a market claims manager. Prior to that he served as executive director of the Society of Collision Repair Specialists.

“This transition of executive leadership has been in process for several months. I am very pleased that Dan Risley was willing and ready to assume his new role, because he possesses all the necessary skills and has the enthusiasm and energy required to lead ASA in these challenging times,” said Pyle.
