ISG Names Gentile as CEO

(JULY 2, 2020) - US dealer organization Independent Suppliers Group (ISG) has named its new CEO following the departure of Mike Maggio.

With Maggio taking on the CEO role at wholesaler S.P. Richards after leading its buyout from Genuine Parts, ISG’s board has appointed President Mike Gentile as its CEO, effective 30 June.

Commenting on his successor, Maggio stated: “I have known Mike Gentile for a number of years and have worked closely with him when we were each running separate dealer groups and since the merger. Mike has been a true partner and I am proud to have worked with him. I am leaving ISG in his very capable hands and the membership is lucky that a manager of his caliber is now at the helm. I look forward to working closely with him and the ISG board of directors to create collaborative programs to the benefit of the members.”

ISG Chairman Dave Guernsey added: “It was a great personal privilege to have worked with Mike Maggio as we formed and managed ISG over the past year. Mike is the consummate professional and the ISG members benefited from his skill and commitment. We all look forward to Mike’s success in his new role as the President and CEO of S.P. Richards.

“Going forward, ISG is blessed with another consummate professional, Mike Gentile. Mike is well known to our dealer community and has many years of experience leading dealer groups. We are confident that he will build further on what ISG has accomplished thus far.” - (OPI)
