Original One Auto Parts, a portfolio company of private equity firm Kinderhook Industries, LLC, has announced that Brian Driehorst has been named senior vice president of sales, effective immediately.
Driehorst’s career in the automotive industry began in 2005 with QCSA Holdings, a national salvage auto auction company, where he worked in a variety of sales and operational roles, culminating with vice president of sales. In 2013, he became Global Salvage Manager for AIG Insurance and was responsible for managing total loss auto claims throughout the globe. Driehorst served as the vice president of business development for Original One Parts from 2017 to 2020. In his new role, Driehorst will be leading a team responsible for the entire sales division, which includes sales, industry relations and marketing.
“Because of our growth and new product lines we needed to expand our entire sales division, and Brian was by far the best candidate to lead that effort,” said Wade Hilburn, president and CEO of Original One Parts. “He is an industry-recognized leader with an intimate understanding of our unique brand, and the quality that is Original One Parts.”
Driehorst also serves as a board member and treasurer of the National Auto Body Council, holds a B.S. in Spanish and an Honors Certificate in Business Management from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, and speaks fluent Spanish.
