“In the continued effort to streamline the product development and category management teams, we implemented this structural change,” said Jason Best, senior vice president, aftermarket, for Spectra Premium. “The new aftermarket product team’s mandate will be to focus on future growth by maximizing first-to-market product releases and continue to provide industry-leading category management insight. On behalf of the entire management team, I wish each individual success in their new roles.”

Brazeau, who previously held the role of vice president of Asian operations, will make the transition into the role of vice president of aftermarket product. In this role, he will assume responsibility for directing the category management, product development, project management, quality control and aftermarket engineering teams in both Asia and North America.
