Piston ring manufacturers Total Seal Piston Rings have named Lake Speed, Jr. as the new vice president of Sales & Marketing, effective Dec. 1.
Matt Hartford, CEO and president of Total Seal, said, “We welcome Lake to Total Seal. There are a multitude of sales and marketing opportunities we want to take advantage of, and we feel Lake is the right person to direct our advancement. His years of experience in racing, technology development in all types of engines, ability to see opportunities in various industries and his dedication to the sport and industry are important to us going forward.”
Lake Speed Jr., commented, “Joining Total Seal is the next step in my journey of tribology, which is the science of friction, wear and lubrication. The piston ring is the motor oil’s best friend, so it only makes sense to join Total Seal. I have first-hand experience gaining horsepower with their great line of products at Joe Gibbs Racing, and Total Seal has been a Driven Racing Oil customer for 7 years. Together we have learned a lot about piston ring seal, so I’m enthusiastic about this great new opportunity to explore and improve engine efficiency together. The entire Total Seal team is first class. The organization is passionate and dedicated to excellence and product advancement, so this is a natural fit for me.”
