MANN+HUMMEL, a global filtration solutions provider, has announced a senior leadership change within the company’s Automotive Aftermarket Americas group.

Faulenbach will lead MANN+HUMMEL’s aftermarket activities in North and South America including engineering, sales, and distribution for the WIX Filters, Purolator and MANN-FILTER brands.

“I was inspired by MANN+HUMMEL’s vision of “Leadership in Filtration” through cleaner mobility, cleaner air, and cleaner water, and believe there are great things we can do to improve the world around us,” said Faulenbach. “I am honored to lead the Aftermarket Americas team, working with timeless and industry-leading brands, as well as an amazing team of Aftermarket experts. I’m looking forward to this next great adventure and couldn’t be happier to be a part of the MANN+HUMMEL Group.”

Faulenbach brings extensive experience across various technical and commercial disciplines within the Automotive Aftermarket. He held multiple leadership roles with suppliers, OEMs, and trading companies within the Independent Aftermarket. Most recently Faulenbach served as the Chief Commercial Officer with LKQ Europe. During his career, Faulenbach also worked in senior management positions with BMW and Bosch.

“We are very happy to welcome Marco Faulenbach to our team, as he has shown great leadership, drive and integrity throughout his extensive and varied career,” said Stefan Tolle, president and general manager Automotive Aftermarket for MANN+HUMMEL. “Marco officially joined our team in early February and has been working closely with Rodrigo to ensure a smooth and successful transition of leadership. We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for Rodrigo and wish him the greatest success in his new role with MANN+HUMMEL.”
