“We are pleased to announce Mark Cali’s appointment to head of the independent aftermarket,” said Steffen Reichelt, head of ZF Aftermarket North America. “He brings into this role a wide range of ZF history and knowledge as well as customer relationships. His experience in the market, passion and level of aggressiveness are the right ingredients to advancing product and sales further.”
