The global car care brand has promoted three high performers from within the company to support its continued growth.
To gear up for a strong second half of 2020, Ziebart has promoted three veteran employees to senior-level positions in finance, marketing and operations.
The 60-year-old car appearance and protection services brand – which operates 400 locations, with 1,200 service centers in 37 countries – announced the promotions of Brian Jackman to vice president and treasurer, Larisa Walega to vice president of marketing, and Jason Theisen to director of franchise operations.
“All three of these loyal team members have devoted years of hard work and proven their ongoing value to the Ziebart brand, as well as to our franchisees and dealers around the world,” said Thomas E. Wolfe, president and CEO of Ziebart International Corporation. “Before the pandemic and throughout, Brian, Larisa and Jason remained committed to Ziebart’s core values of honesty, passion, innovation, teamwork and legacy. We look forward to the important role they will play in the future of our great brand.”
During his 16-year career at Ziebart, Theisen worked his way up from technician at a local store to management and eventually corporate sales. As the director of franchise operations, he will be responsible for U.S. regional sales, product sales and technical support and customer service.
Among the many positions Jackman has held at the company over the past decade, he most recently served as Ziebart’s director of corporate finance, where he streamlined the accounting department, while 11 years at the company, Walega has spent the past seven years as director of marketing.
