  • Two new sales roles created in North America to capitalize on ZF Aftermarket brand portfolio opportunities
  • Experienced industry professionals bring permanent business presence to key geographical areas
  • Further support for a growing customer base ensuring best in class service and access to latest product development 

ZF Aftermarket has announced the appointment of two newly created sales roles. This news will ensure that the market can further benefit from access to ZF Aftermarket’s leading brand portfolio. Richard Odom will assume the role of Regional Manager for the South and be based in Montgomery, AL. He will also manage and nurture the relationships with Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, Automotive Distribution Network and National Pronto Association groups. Matthew McCoy will take on the position of Regional Manager for the West, and be based in San Diego, CA.  Both appointments will report to Mark Thorpe, ZF Aftermarket, Director of Sales, United States and Canada and are effective immediately.  

“Our aftermarket business in North America is growing rapidly. To ensure we are well placed to meet the ever changing needs of our expanding customer base and growing product portfolio, we are further building on our experienced and successful team,” said Mark Thorpe, Director of Sales.

“Our two new team members have been carefully chosen for their ability to best support the business and our customers. Each brings to the table a wealth of skills, and experience and we wish them all the best in their new roles.”  

With more than 35 years industry experience, Richard Odom joins the ZF Aftermarket team from his last position as Program Group and Retail Business Development Manager at MAHLE; a business he had worked at for 26 years.

As Regional Manager for the South, Odom is tasked with maintaining current relationships and introducing existing and new customers to the many benefits of ZF Aftermarket’s leading brand portfolio. He will also be responsible for nurturing the growing relationships with central buying groups: Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance; Automotive Distribution Network and National Pronto Association. Odom will relocate from Farmington Hills, MI to Montgomery, AL to take up the post.

Also joining the team is Matthew McCoy based in San Diego, CA.  As Regional Manager for the West, McCoy will work closely with distributors and sales representatives to ensure continued sales growth. With experience gained across the fields of customer service, sales and marketing, McCoy joins ZF Aftermarket from his most recent sales position with Pacific Marketing.

“I am confident that Richard and Matthew will be valuable additions to our North American team,” added Thorpe. “Their combined industry experience, knowledge and skill set of how to manage the different customer sectors, as well as familiarity with our global business, aftermarket portfolio and customer base will prove invaluable as we continue the ZF Aftermarket success story across North America.”
