CRP Automotive Announces Retirement Of Dennis Losey, National Sales Director

Losey joined CRP Automotive in 2008 and played a major role in helping CRP Automotive develop and grow its domestic warehouse distributor business in the U.S.

CRP Automotive, a leading source of OE-quality replacement and service parts, has announced the retirement of Dennis Losey, industry-veteran and longtime national sales director. Losey joined CRP Automotive in 2008 and played a major role in helping CRP Automotive develop and grow its domestic warehouse distributor business in the U.S.

In making the announcement, Michael Palm, vice president of sales and marketing, noted, “Dennis has been an invaluable member of our automotive sales team, joining us when we were at the early stages of building our domestic warehouse distributor business with the ContiTech brand. He was a consummate professional and his tenacious approach to sales and serving the customer opened the door to many new sales opportunities for all of our brands. Over the past decade, Dennis has helped us create and establish successful relationships with a wide range of customers.”

Affectionately known as “Big D”, Losey enjoyed a 40-year career in the automotive aftermarket. In addition to the CRP organization, Losey also served in national sales management positions with Henkel/Loctite, Radiator Specialty, Blue Coral/Slick 50 and Loctite Corp.

Palm also added, “We will miss all the little things Dennis did so eloquently, thoughtfully and yet so quietly. Always a true gentleman, Dennis looked out for CRP’s best interest while putting the customer at the center of our thinking. He lives our values and has been a wonderful ambassador for CRP. His presence will be greatly missed. We wish him the best of health and enjoyment in his retirement.”

Although Losey’s official retirement is effective June 2018, he will continue to work with the CRP team on special projects through the remainder of the year.
