The MagnaFlow Group, a Southern California-based automotive aftermarket exhaust and emission systems manufacturer, has hired Cary Redman as its new director of retail sales, the company announced.
Redman brings over 25 years of executive sales experience from positions at well-respected brands in the automotive aftermarket and will be responsible for managing the growth of both revenue and productivity for his team in the retail space, the company said. Before joining MagnaFlow, Redman served as vice president at the Edelbrock Corporation, where he spearheaded brand management activities. Prior to that, he spent nearly 15 years in sales management with Prestolite Performance and Holley Performance.
“We’ve successfully navigated the unique demands of the 2020 and 2021 markets, driving innovation and gaining share for the MagnaFlow Group,” states Kevin German, senior vice president of sales. “Consumers are relying heavily on their local retail outlets to quickly supply the parts they need. We are looking to Cary to deliver on MagnaFlow’s mission of providing our customers with the highest quality exhaust experience from start to finish.”
As director of retail sales, Redman’s focus will be on strengthening relationships with top business partners such as Advance Auto, AutoZone, and O’Reilly, to name a few. He will lead members of the Retail Sales and Sales Management team to define and coordinate goals, optimize regional coverage, and execute on the annual sales plan.
“I’ve been fortunate to work with many of MagnaFlow’s retail customers over the years,” said Redman. “MagnaFlow has an excellent reputation in the industry as a strategic manufacturer, and I’m very excited to bring my knowledge to the team to engage with both familiar and new associates on their behalf.”
