Representatives From Glazier Sales Associates, Federal-Mogul Motorparts Appointed To CAWA’s Manufacturers Advisory Council

Michael Glazier of Glazier Sales Associates and Sean Ruitenberg of Federal-Mogul Motorparts have joined the CAWA MAC.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – CAWA Chairman Ron Aparicio of MOTUL USA Inc. has appointed representatives from Glazier Sales Associates and Federal-Mogul Motorparts to CAWA’s Manufacturers’ Advisory Council (MAC).  
The representatives are:
· Michael Glazier of Glazier Sales Associates
· Sean Ruitenberg of Federal-Mogul Motorparts
During the appointment process, Aparicio commented, "In adding Mike Glazier to our MAC, we are adding one of the top manufacturer representatives in the aftermarket. Mike’s growing agency, with roots now expanding into Arizona … is a leader in ‘feet on the street’ support and his input will be greatly welcomed."
Aparicio went on to say, "Sean Ruitenberg’s appointment provides another key leader for our MAC from an industry leading manufacturer. Sean is a welcomed addition and we look forward to his input."
Glazier has more than 30 years in the aftermarket starting in 1982. He began in sales on the manufacturer side and then moved to the independent rep side. He founded his sales agency in 1995 as a metropolitan New York/New Jersey agency focused on “hard parts” and has successfully expanded in both sales growth and geography since then.
Ruitenberg started his automotive career with Magnaflow Exhaust Products in 2009, where he was the Southeastern U.S. and Mexico regional sales manager. After three-and-a-half years with Magnaflow, he moved on to Walker Products as an aftermarket account manager. In July 2014, Ruitenberg began working with Federal-Mogul Motorparts as a sales development manager based out of Southern California, working with accounts in California and Arizona and also with certain accounts in Mexico.
