After the recent loss of Vic Edelbrock Jr, Edelbrock has decided to make some changes in their staffing department. They are pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Rogers to the position of President of Edelbrock LLC. The Board of Directors made the decision that Steve will replace Wayne Murray as the President of Edelbrock LLC. Wayne will remain with the company and will assume the role of Chief Operating Officer while continuing to focus on overseeing Edelbrock’s manufacturing and foundry operations. John Colaianne will remain as Chief Executive Officer.
Edelbrock feels Steve brings a lot to the table as he was previously the President and CEO of K&N Engineering, Inc. from 2003 to 2014. “I am very excited to be joining the Edelbrock family and look forward to helping the company continue to evolve and grow. I am truly blessed and humbled to have this opportunity to work with one of the premier brands that helped to define the performance automotive aftermarket”, says Steve. He continued by expressing his sorrow for the recent loss of Vic Edelbrock Jr. and shared his commitment to doing everything in his power to support the legacy for quality products that Vic and his father built around the Edelbrock brand.
John Colaianne, Edelbrock CEO and Industrial Opportunity Partners Operating Principal (he also remains as Chief Executive Officer), said, “Our Board of Directors, along with Vic Edelbrock Jr., invested a lot of time in finding the right person to lead Edelbrock into the future, and we believe Steve is the right person for the job.” Wayne Murray added, “Our entire management team is excited to welcome Steve. We’re confident that Steve’s experience and expertise are what Edelbrock needs to foster continued growth.”
