ATI Names a Chief Transmission Technology Officer

ATI Performance Products, based near Baltimore, MD, has announced the appointment of Vince Fourcade as chief transmission technology officer (CTTO). Fourcade brings three decades of performance racing and automatic transmission building expertise to this new position.

Fourcade raced in the Pro Stock, Pro Rear Wheel Drive, Top Sportsman, and Top Dragster categories in the ’80s. Later in that decade, Fourcade joined Montgomery Transmissions, where he worked with Bobby Edwards and Jim Beattie. Later, he went on to win the Bracket Finals at Maple Grove while using an ATI transmission and converter.

Fourcade opened his own transmission shop in 1998 and continued racing. He later joined ATI in a part-time capacity, working with the team to advance the science of high-performance automatic transmissions. Five years later, he joined ATI in a full-time capacity. 

“There are only a handful of really good builders in the country,“ JC Beattie, Jr. said, “and Vince is one of them. We are extremely lucky and thankful to have him join our team.”
