Aeromotive Promotes 2 Key Employees

The promotions took effect on Jan. 13.

Aeromotive, a leading manufacturer of aftermarket fuel systems and accessories, has announced the promotion of two employees into senior management roles.  Johnson Barrick has been named VP of sales and marketing, while Jeff Stacy has been promoted to executive VP of both Aeromotive and its Waterman Racing Components sister brand.  These promotions took effect on Jan. 13.

Barrick, who formerly held the position of sales and marketing manager at Aeromotive, surpassed sales goals and pushed Aeromotive into double-digit growth in 2019. In his new role, Barrick will be responsible for communicating sales plan objectives and organizational expenditures to remain in sync with company goals; developing, implementing and managing new and existing distribution strategies; and leading strategy for marketing, public relations and creative projects. Barrick’s previous experience has been in both government and corporate markets, working with Belmont University, the Air Force Academy and the University of Texas, San Antonio. 

Stacy, previously the VP of Aeromotive Inc., brings his more than 30 years of experience in the automotive industry to both Aeromotive Inc. and Waterman Racing Components. During his three-year term as VP, he pushed Aeromotive into new markets and expanded its body of distributors. Now as the executive VP of Aeromotive Inc. and Waterman Racing Components, Stacy will be guiding the companies’ executive leaders in formulating and implementing strategic plans and overseeing their operations in accordance with the competitive landscape. Previously, he has served as the company’s sales and marketing manager, VP of operations and, most recently, VP.  Stacy has also previously worked for industry-leading companies APW/Keystone, Fragola Performance Systems/FK Rod Ends and R&R Marketing Consultants Inc.

“Both Jeff and Johnson have shown a drive and passion to elevate Aeromotive to heights never seen before,” said company President Steve Matusek. “With Jeff’s decades of involvement within the automotive industry and Johnson’s diverse background in sales, marketing and event coordination, I strongly believe Aeromotive is in a position to make monumental strides in new and existing markets during 2020.”
