Less than a week ago, Roanoke's only Fortune 500 company reported another slight dip in profit for it's latest quarter. But the results from Advance Auto Parts still beat out Wall Street expectations.
WDBJ7 caught up with the company's CEO to ask him whether he thinks the market is stabalizing. We also asked him about rumors a private equity firm could buy out the company.
"Oh we never speculate...As a CEO of a company I am never satisfied when our sales don't grow as much as I want them to, I'm never satisfied when profits don't grow and I am never satisfied when we're not serving our customers the right way," says Darren Jackson, CEO of Advance Auto Parts.
Jackson attended a fundraiser for the Juvinelle Diabetes Research Foundation Tuesday evening. Over the past 20 years, Advance has helped raise over $35 million for the national foundation.
