MINNEAPOLIS — Polaris Industries Inc. has shuffled the top management of its Transamerican Auto Parts (TAP) business, promoting President Greg Adler to executive vice chairman and naming Polaris veteran Craig Scanlon to succeed him as president.
In his new role, Mr. Adler will be responsible for supporting long-range strategy, pursuing inorganic growth opportunities through TAP's strategic acquisition framework and serving as a TAP brand ambassador, Polaris said.
Mr. Adler joined TAP in 1994 and served in various areas of the business before being named TAP's president and CEO in 2005. Polaris acquired TAP — which includes off-road parts retailer 4 Wheel Parts and private brand tire distributor Pro Comp — in 2016.
Mr. Scanlon brings 14 years of executive experience at Polaris to his new job. He most recently was vice president and chief retail and marketing officer for Off-Road Vehicles (ORV) at Polaris. Prior to joining Polaris, he held sales and accounting roles at Ingersoll Rand.
Messrs. Adler and Scanlon will both report to Steve Eastman, president of aftermarket, parts, garments and accessories for Polaris.
"For more than 50 years, TAP has led the 4x4 Jeep and truck aftermarket thanks to the vision, leadership and passion of the Adler family," Mr. Eastman said. "As executive vice chairman, Greg's extensive industry knowledge, strategic insight, and strong relationships will continue to play a critical role in supporting the long-term success of the business."
