ANDERSON, IN — Remy International, which recently changed its name from Delco Remy International, has formed a new aftermarket services department to coordinate brand management and analysis. The new division will report to President and CEO Thomas Snyder but will also be directly responsible to the heads of diesel, electrical, Knopf and locomotive divisions.

Al Rowley has been named vice president of the new aftermarket services department. Prior to joining Remy, Rowley held executive positions with Delphi, AC Delco and Delco Remy, all primarily in aftermarket activities.

Brian Richardson becomes director of aftermarket programs reporting to Rowley and will be responsible for OES, diesel, locomotive and military programs. Richardson joined Remy in 2000 after twenty years with Allison Transmissions where he served in a variety of engineering and marketing roles.

John Pyzik will also report to Rowley. He has been an advisor to Remy since the formation of the company and will continue in that role. He brings more than twenty years of General Motors and Delco Remy management experience, most recently as public relations director where he coordinated media relations, advertising, trade shows, promotions, motor sports and premium incentives programs.

This group will be responsible for expanding the marketing capabilities of Remy and will coordinate Remy brand strategies among the company’s businesses. In addition, they will be responsible for developing strategies for past model services, internal business sales and OES sales and marketing strategies.

The company said growth of the new Remy will be heavily dependent on expanding its channels, capitalizing on the Delco Remy and Remy brands and creating synergy from its diverse product lines.

In ten years, Remy International, has doubled in size with more than 6000 employees worldwide and recorded more than $1 billion in sales last year, placing it as the seventh largest privately-held company based in Indiana. The company has expanded its product lines to include starters, alternators, transmissions, engines, fuel systems and remanufacturing operations now located on four continents.
