K&N announced that Jon Holder will be joining the executive team as chief sales officer. Holder was previously the senior vice president, Sales and Business Development for MagnaFlow/Car Sound Inc., where he was responsible for all global sales activities.
“Mr. Holder has over 20 years of experience working in a variety of industries and roles and will make a great addition to our executive team,” K&N CEO Steve Rogers said. “Jon's specific experience in our industry, financial background, and international scope make him the ideal person to lead our global sales organization in the future.”
The company began a formal search for this position in January 2014 when Tim Martin was promoted to chief operations officer and relinquished his oversight of sales in order to focus on his new position. Other members of the K&N management team include Steve Williams, chief engineering officer; Jesse Spungin, chief marketing officer; Doug Hood, chief financial officer; and Jean Franks, vice president of administration.
