Cloyes Promotes Tim Murphy to SVP of Sales, US and Canada

Murphy is an experienced sales and marketing professional of more than 38 years.

Cloyes Gear and Products announced that Tim Murphy has been promoted to senior vice president of Sales, U.S. and Canada. 

An experienced sales and marketing professional with more than 38 years, Murphy joined Cloyes after graduating from John Carroll University east of Cleveland, Ohio. He enjoyed great success as district sales manager and southeastern regional sales manager in his early career with Cloyes. He later served as sales and marketing manager for Cloyes traditional and performance businesses, as well as one of their key accounts, Genuine Parts Co. After a brief stint with the Schaeffler Group, Murphy returned to Cloyes in 2018 as vice president of sales for U.S. and Canada.

“Tim has played a significant role in Cloyes’ fantastic growth in recent years. His promotion is well deserved, and we look forward to Tim’s sales leadership in his new role,” said John Hanighen, president and CEO of Cloyes. Murphy will report directly to Hanighen.

With this news, after a distinguished sales leadership career at Cloyes, Richard Crotzer will work with Murphy as he transitions the responsibilities of his previous role in the U.S. and Canada, as well as leading special projects and sales integration activities. Hanighen added, “Cloyes deeply appreciates Richard’s incredible sales and special project work since joining Cloyes in 2018. His driven nature and extreme focus on winning new business have helped Cloyes reach record levels of aftermarket revenue for this organization.”
