Centric Parts has appointed Paul Stewart executive vice president of sales and marketing.
Stewart will lead the sales and marketing team, overseeing performance, fleet, program group and medium duty sales as well as traditional Qualis and Centric sales. He will report directly to Dan Lelchuk, president and CEO of Centric Parts.
“Paul brings an outstanding track record of sales and marketing success to the team,” says Lelchuk. “His vast experience in the automotive aftermarket, particularly in brake and chassis, will benefit the company in many ways, and his intimate understanding of our Qualis operations, customers and product range will be invaluable.”
“I’m very proud to be leading the Centric Parts sales and marketing team,” says Stewart. “Centric has a tremendous reputation in the industry for offering quality products combined with industry leading customer support, which makes my job a lot easier. I look forward to building upon the tremendous growth Centric has enjoyed as we continue to strengthen our existing programs and expand into new product categories.”
Stewart joined Centric Parts during the acquisition of Qualis Automotive in July 2013. He co-founded Qualis in 1999 and most recently served as vice president, sales and marketing.
