Charles “Chuck” Pariano, senior manager sales and marketing for AISIN North America Aftermarket Division, has announced his retirement, effective June 18.
Since 2006, Pariano has been responsible for AISIN’s aftermarket sales and marketing strategy, developing and implementing programs for various sales and distribution channels in North America, selling various OE product categories into the aftermarket in both the U.S. and Canada. During his tenure these past 14-plus years, AISIN has seen substantial growth in revenues, with many new OE products being introduced every year. Pariano believes as he departs, the current AISIN Aftermarket sales team in place is very well positioned to continue this growth.
Prior to joining AISIN, Pariano held various management positions within the aftermarket during his more than 35 years in the industry. He was the business development manager for Douglas Battery; vice president of Aftermarket Sales at Schrader Bridgeport International; and the national account sales manager for Modine Manufacturing Co. He also was a member of the CAWA Manufacturers Council.
Pariano said, “Over the years I’ve been in the aftermarket, I’ve had the distinct pleasure to work with great people, customers and industry leaders, which enabled me to make many friends while conducting daily business together. I’ll definitely miss seeing everyone at various industry wide events during the year as I step away. In addition, now that I won’t be flying around the country for business every week, my wife and I look forward to travel leisurely and see what I’ve flown over during these past 35-plus years. I’m sure it will look much different from the ground instead of from being up in the air.”
He resides in La Quinta, California, with his wife, June.
