Affinia Group has appointed Rick Pizarek as president, global chassis, to lead the development and implementation of operational, sourcing and marketing strategies.

“Rick brings a unique understanding of our Global Chassis business, having served as vice president and general manager of Affinia’s Asian Operations in Shanghai from 2007 through 2010,” says Terry R. McCormack, president and CEO of Affinia Group.  “Given the increasing age of our nation’s private vehicles, our chassis business is well positioned to meet the growing needs of the aftermarket with a strong brand and world-class quality.”

Pizarek joined Affinia in 1995. He has served as vice president and general manager of Affinia’s global chassis group since September 2010.
