Kesar’s role will help expand support of engine performance resellers and the reach of Engine Pro supplier partners.

The AAM Group, which recently assumed operational oversight of the Engine Pro program, is has announced the hiring of Jeff Kesar to lead marketing and strategic planning for the program.

He notably also produced the “Motorsports Mania” television show that aired on Fox Sports Network Arizona. 

In his role as AAM Group Marketing Specialist, Kesar will work to bring Engine Pro into the existing portfolio of AAM Group marketing programs, integrating tools and services that make sense for resellers in the engine performance industry as well as devising new solutions that address the particular concerns of those business owners. Kesar also will create and execute an ongoing strategy to generate exposure and influence for Engine Pro supplier partners.
