PRW Announces New Hires, Moves To New Location

PRW Industries, Inc. has announced a new addition, Chris Roberts, who has been named product manager. Roberts is a 17 year veteran in the automotive aftermarket and is responsible for new products and quality control.

Roberts has an extensive background in the performance aftermarket in product management, research and development as well as sales. He is passionate about racing in all forms, and has participated in off-road racing as well as more than 30 years riding and racing motorcycles.

“I look forward to my new responsibilities here at PRW, we are a strong team, producing products that enthusiasts use both on and off the track,” says Roberts.

In addition to Roberts, PRW also announced the hiring of Erin Post as the new marketing manager and graphic designer. Post earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Communications/ Advertising with an emphasis in Marketing in 2009. She also has a certification in Web Design at Golden West College. She worked previously worked in the aerospace industry and was involved with part production flow, purchasing and marketing. She is also a marketing coordinator with one of Autodesk’s biggest re-sellers in the West Coast region.

Earlier last year, PRW promoted Jerid Suchy as its new western regional sales manager to replace Jamie Adkins, who retired. Adkins worked closely with Suchy over his last few months so he was up to speed in his new role. Suchy, too, is a racer and enthusiast, which has helped him gain experience in the automotive world when it comes to the network of performance aftermarket distributors, dealers, and engine builders. Suchy has a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing and Business from California State Polytechnic University at Pomona.

On a final note, the company has moved its corporate headquarters to 1722 Illinois Avenue, Perris, CA 92571. The new location is effective as of February 15th.
