New President For Diesel Forward

Diesel Forward, Windsor, Wis., an aftermarket distributor of diesel engine parts has announced Houman Kashanipour (HK) as its new president. As president, Kashanipour will be supporting Diesel Forward’s recent expansion by directing day-to-day operations with a focus on efficiency and team building. He will report to CEO Robert Breunig.

Kashanipour joined Diesel Forward in 2017 as chief commercial officer and has since helped expand its footprint and sales team to four warehouses by adding two Western U.S. locations in Denver, Colo. and Ontario, Calif. This expansion allows Diesel Forward a stronger position in the diesel fuel system, turbocharger and diesel aftertreatment markets, Breunig said.

Prior to joining Diesel Forward, Kashanipour served various operational roles at Navistar Engine Group, was president of Pure Power Technologies, a Navistar company, and also served as president of Weichai America.

“HK has been a key factor in Diesel Forward’s recent growth,” Breunig said. “His strong track record in operational efficiency combined with his knowledge and experience in the diesel industry will be a driving force that continues our company’s success.”
