Nov 2, 2021

Wilwood Engineering has appointed Mark Cornwell as vice president of New Business Development and Specialty Markets, the company announced.

Cornwell comes to Wilwood after 14 years at StopTech High-Performance Brake Systems, a division of Centric-Parts, where he worked as vice president of Sales and Marketing. Prior to StopTech, as the President of Sparco, Cornwell was responsible for growing the company’s motorsports racing apparel and accessory product categories, the company said.

Before his tenure at Sparco, Cornwell was the first USA factory salesperson for Brembo North America. His job as director of Performance and Racing helped segue the brand into the IndyCar and NASCAR markets, he said, and prior roles as crew chief and mechanic for successful IndyCar teams helped prepare Cornwell for his motorsports career.

“The entire Wilwood Engineering team is delighted to have such an experienced individual aboard and looks forward to working with Mr. Cornwell on future projects,” company representatives said in a statement announcing the hire.
