Advantage Parts Solutions is pleased to announce promotions within its global leadership team. Darren Clark was promoted to UK managing director, Murray Isaac to chief financial officer, and Steve Kirstiuk to senior vice president of global operations.
Clark began his career with Advantage Parts Solutions as one of the founding employees in the United Kingdom. Originally a business development manager, Clark has successfully managed and led the national sales and operations of Advantage’s UK relationships. In his new role, as managing director, Clark is responsible for all UK operations.
Isaac joined Advantage as the company’s finance manager and is now responsible for leading the global accounting and finance teams. His promotion to CFO more accurately reflects his diverse and strategic responsibilities ranging from financial planning and analysis to managing the day-to-day accounting responsibilities.
Kirstiuk’s nearly 20-year career with Advantage has seen him lead finance, human resources, legal, and business development and marketing efforts. In his new global operations role, Kirstiuk will lead the organization’s team responsible for the successful implementation of strategic programs while managing global operations.
“As we continue to innovate, bring new product offerings to market and optimize the OEM parts supply chain, Advantage will continue to recruit and promote executive leadership that aligns with our organization’s vision. With Darren, Murray and Steve’s promotions, we’re doing exactly that; ensuring our organization continues to drive value to every constituent in the OEM parts supply chain,” stated Advantage Parts Solutions’ co-founder and CEO Bob Kirstiuk. “Advantage is excited to announce these promotions as they highlight the value these members of our team bring to the industry and more accurately reflect their roles and responsibilities.”
These executive promotions follow Paul Gange’s appointment as the brand’s president of North America.
