During his time at Dorman he was able help drive many new-to-the-aftermarket product initiatives and managed more than 20 different product lines in chassis, emissions, drivetrain, brakes and powertrain categories. His time at Dorman provided key insight into what is required to develop solutions that create value for the technicians.
