Beck/Arnley has appointed Heath Breedlove to the position of vice president of sales.
In this position, Breedlove will lead sales growth across all channels of distribution in the United States, Canada and export markets in support of Beck/Arnley’s retail and traditional WD customers, and its independent jobber, service dealer and DIY customers.
In addition to its traditional aftermarket customer base, Breedlove will be responsible for sales to Beck/Arnley’s OE customers, as well as sales to other manufacturers. Breedlove will report to Max Dull, vice president and general manager of Beck/Arnley.
“We would like to officially congratulate Heath as he transitions into his new role as vice president of sales for Beck/Arnley,” said Dull. “Heath has been a part of the Beck/Arnley team for more than two years and during that time he did an excellent job working with our retail and program group customers to help increase their import sales to professional installers. As vice president of sales, Heath will bring his extensive industry experience and knowledge of the foreign nameplate market, as well as his understanding of the competitive environment in the aftermarket and the changing business needs of Beck/Arnley customers, as he continues the tradition of serving our channel partners to get Beck/Arnley brand parts in the hands of end-users – technicians who repair and maintain import vehicles.”
Prior to being named the new vice president of sales, Breedlove served as Beck/Arnley’s vice president of retail and program group sales, calling on and facilitating sales growth with program groups and retailer customers’ businesses. Before joining Beck/Arnley, Breedlove held the position of regional director of store sales for General Parts Inc., where he managed sales activities for more than 20 Carquest Auto Parts Stores corporate sales. Earlier in his career, Breedlove held various national account executive and sales manager positions with General Parts Inc., as well as served in a sales manager position with the Wix division of Dana Corporation.
