His successful track record within startups and rapidly changing business environments will give us the speed and skills needed to support our continued growth.

“Motor Supply Co. is experiencing rapid growth, and my roles within previous leadership teams lend themselves to achieving success in that mode. I’m looking forward to the upward changes I see coming, and I’m confident we have the team to make that happen,” Petersen commented.
