CarParts.com CEO Lev Peker has been named Executive of the Year by the Business Intelligence Group’s BIG Award for Business 2020. The organization’s annual program was advertised as the “Executive of the Year” program and rewards companies, products and people that are leading their respective industries.
Peker joined CarParts.com as CEO and director in January of 2019. Since then, he has executed a complete financial, logistical and organizational turnaround of the company, aimed at building a disruptive technology-driven e-commerce platform that is changing the way consumers shop for auto parts. While the company was just months from bankruptcy when he joined, CarParts.com just reported its third consecutive quarter of double digit, profitable growth and the highest gross profit in the company’s history.
“It’s been an incredible journey and a privilege to guide CarParts.com over the past year and half and I am honored to be recognized by the Business Intelligence team. Our success would not have been possible without the hard work and discipline of everyone on our team, across all of our locations around the world. We’ve proven that a brilliant turnaround is possible despite the uncertainties that come our way, and I truly believe we will continue to grow and bring value to our employees, shareholders, and consumers in the years to come.”
“We are so proud to reward Lev Peker of CarParts.com for his outstanding 2020 achievements,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nomination officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “This year’s group of winners are clearly leading by example in the global business community.”
