TOLEDO, OH — Terry Shively has been named vice president and general manager of Dana’s Engine and Fluid Management Group’s Clevite Engine Parts Division. Terry McCormack, president of the Dana Automotive Aftermarket Group (AAG) made the announcement.
“Terry has been a huge asset to the Dana Automotive Aftermarket Group but because Clevite is not part of the sale of the aftermarket group, Terry will remain with Dana Corporation to ensure continued customer focus and commitment,” said McCormack. “Terry brings a wealth of customer service, sales and marketing experience to this new position. He is the perfect person to lead the distribution, marketing and sales functions of the Clevite, Victor Reinz and Perfect Circle brands.”
In December 2003, Dana Corp. announced its intention to divest the company’s automotive aftermarket group in a move to sharpen its focus on the OE marketplace. The proposed divestiture does not involve Dana’s Clevite distribution and marketing activities based in Ann Arbor, Mich., or its related operations in Churubusco, Ind.; Collierville, Tenn.; and Olive Branch, Miss.
In this new position, Shively will be responsible for the Clevite marketing and distribution headquarters based in Ann Arbor, and the Clevite distribution centers in Churubusco; Collierville; and Olive Branch. He will also oversee eight branch locations around the country.
Most recently, Shively served as vice president of marketing and public relations for the Dana Automotive Aftermarket Group. Prior to that, he served as general manager of the Clevite operation; vice president of marketing at WIX Filtration Products; product planning manager at Dana’s Churubusco, Ind., facility; heavy-duty sales and marketing manager; and OEM account manager for Victor Reinz Gaskets. Having joined Dana in 1970, he brings more than three decades of Dana experience to this new assignment.
