CRANBURY, N.J. (Oct. 22, 2015) — CRP Automotive, a leading source of replacement parts for European and Asian import vehicles, has hired Bill Hoffpauer as its regional sales manager for the Southeastern U.S.
He replaces Daniel McSwain, who has retired after 19 years of service with the Cranbury-based company.
In his new role, Mr. Hoffpauer will be responsible for managing the sales portfolio of CRP Automotive's six-brand family in the Southeastern U.S., including regional and national accounts, the firm said. He also will play key roles in helping to expand relationships with current customers and establishing new accounts and business opportunities.
Prior to joining CRP Automotive, Mr. Hoffpauer worked at Valeo Service USA from 1997 to 2015, holding several key sales management positions, including national sales manager. In that capacity he was responsible for a wide territory that included the U.S., Canada and Mexico, along with other export markets.
“This is a bittersweet moment for CRP Automotive,” said Trevor Potter, vice president of sales for CRP Automotive. “While we are sad to see Dan McSwain retire, we are delighted to welcome Bill Hoffpauer to our aftermarket team. Dan McSwain has been a great asset to this company and his dedication, skill, and knowledge will be missed, but we wish him nothing but good things to come in his retirement.”
Mr. Potter added that Mr. Hoffpauer “is an award-winning sales executive with just shy of two decades of executive and sales management experience in the automotive aftermarket. His excellence in sales and proven leadership in territory management will give our steadily growing organization a significant advantage in the market, and we look forward to his contribution.”
