Aisin World Corp. of America reports Charles (Chuck) Pariano has retired.
Since 2006, Pariano was responsible for Aisin’s aftermarket sales and marketing strategy, developing and implementing programs for various sales and distribution channels in North America, selling various OE product categories into the aftermarket in both the U.S. and Canada.
During his tenure, Aisin saw substantial growth in revenues, with many new OE products being introduced every year, the company notes.
Prior to joining Aisin, Pariano held various management positions within the aftermarket during his 35-plus years in the industry. He was the business development manager for Douglas Battery, vice president of aftermarket sales at Schrader Bridgeport International, and the national account sales manager for Modine Manufacturing Co. He also was a member of the CAWA Manufacturers Council.
Pariano says, “Over the years I’ve been in the aftermarket, I’ve had the distinct pleasure to work with great people, customers and industry leaders, which enabled me to make many friends while conducting daily business together. I’ll definitely miss seeing everyone at various industry wide events during the year as I step away.”
