As a leading manufacturer of performance components for the automotive and powersports markets, Race Winning Brands (RWB) has announced a new member of its dedicated team to further support customers and racers with the addition of Ross Clark in a technical sales role, focused on the MGP Connecting Rods brand with supplementary support for Diamond Racing Pistons.

With experience in both the OE and performance aftermarket segments of the automotive sector with roles involving technical sales and analytics, Clark is a natural fit among the performance professionals of the RWB family. Previously, he has held roles at major industry players, including Dart Machinery, Recaro and General Motors Accessories, experience that will translate to improved service for MGP and RWB customers and partners alike, the company says.

With a long professional history based out of Michigan, Clark is a welcome addition to the already strong and passionate teams of RWB’s Michigan based operations, the company adds. Clark will be responsible for providing product technical guidance and sales process support for the complete range of aluminum rod capabilities of the MGP brand. As a natural complement to performance rods, Clark also will provide similar support for Diamond Racing Pistons in applicable situations.

Clark will report directly to Steve Rhodey, sales manager for RWB Michigan, in his roles representing MGP, RWB and its brands, effective immediately.
