Edelbrock Appoints Don Barry As New President


In another change up of high-up executives within a year, Edelbrock is very pleased to announce the appointment of Don Barry to the position of President and CEO of Edelbrock, LLC. Since Vic Edelbrock Jr’s passing back on June 9th, 2017, there has been quite a number of staffing change ups at Edelbrock. In June 2017, former K&N Engineering, Inc. President and CEO Steve Rogers was assigned to the position of President of Edelbrock LLC; replacing former President Wayne Murray. After a handful of months, Steve is being replaced by Don Barry.

Don has built a distinguished career leading some of the foremost brands in the consumer products and automotive aftermarket industries. He is joining Edelbrock after most recently serving as the Chief Commercial Officer of ISN, the world’s largest distributor of automotive tools. Prior to ISN, Don was the President and CEO of The ACCEL Performance Group. In this position, he successfully drove revenue and profit growth through the introduction of new product lines, brand re-positioning, and new customer acquisition. Don originally entered the automotive aftermarket industry under the well known brand Dorman Products, Inc. as its Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing and International.

Don also spent 16 years at 3M in positions of increasing responsibility and culminating as the President of the European Consumer and Office business unit. He began his career with S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc., where he gained key insight into consumer products and purchase behavior. “I’m very excited to be joining the Edelbrock team. Edelbrock is an iconic brand in the aftermarket industry and I look forward to leading Edelbrock’s growth into the future and being part of this historic company’s next phase,” states Don Barry.
