Penray’s Randy Fowler to Retire June 1

During his career, Fowler also served as chairman of the Automotive Specialty Products Alliance.

Industry veteran Randy Fowler is set to retire on June 1, after 44 years in the automotive aftermarket.  

Fowler started his career in Ohio working with Hope/Eastman and Associates. During his tenure at this Midwest-based manufacturer’s representative firm, he was introduced to The Penray Companies. After 10 years working as a manufacturer’s representative, he transferred to Chicago to work directly with Penray. He has held many sales and marketing positions at Penray, including ownership over the years.  

During his career, Fowler has participated in many aftermarket associations, including as chairman of the Automotive Specialty Products Alliance. In addition, he was a member of the Automotive Sales Council.  

“I have been blessed with many wonderful years in the aftermarket. It has been a pleasure to work with so many talented people over the years. Most importantly, I have developed many friendships that will last a lifetime. So, I say goodbye to a career and look forward to the next chapter in my life,” said Fowler.
