Federal-Mogul Corporation has appointed former Cooper Automotive vice-president Joseph Felicelli to the new position of senior vice president, worldwide aftermarket operations. The announcement was made by Chip McClure, president and chief operating officer. Felicelli will report to McClure. Felicelli will be responsible for Federal-Mogul’s global aftermarket operations, including sales, marketing, distribution and logistics. He will also have operational responsibility for chassis and chassis hard parts, fuel, wipers and ignition products in the United States, Mexico and Canada. "Joe’s extensive background in manufacturing, sales and marketing, together with his knowledge of the aftermarket business, its products and its customers, and, most importantly, his leadership ability, make him an ideal choice for this challenging role," said McClure. Prior to this appointment, Felicelli served as group vice president, aftermarket, for Delco Remy International, Inc., since 1997. In that role, Felicelli had general management responsibility for remanufacturing operations in the United States, Canada and in multiple international locations. Remanufactured products include alternators, starters, gas and diesel engines, transmissions, and diesel fuel systems for distribution to aftermarket and original equipment customers such as Advance Auto Parts, O’Reilly Auto, General Motors SPO, Ford and Delphi. Prior to Delco Remy International, Felicelli was vice president, North American operations, Cooper Automotive Division — where he was responsible for production of spark plugs, ignition wiring, lighting assemblies and wiper blade systems for original equipment and aftermarket customers — and vice president, operations, Moog Automotive, where he had general sales, marketing and operational responsibility for chassis parts, among other product lines, since 1994. Cooper Automotive and Moog Automotive were divisions of Cooper Industries and were acquired by Federal-Mogul in 1998.
