Gibson Brings Branding, Products and Special Projects Experience to Role

With an eye on global growth and innovation, WIX® Filters, a global manufacturer of filtration products, has named Jennifer Gibson as brand manager.

“This is an exciting time for the WIX brand. We’re positioning ourselves for future success and doing so with an extraordinary marketing and sales team,” said Jeff Blocher, vice president of sales for WIX Filters. “Jennifer has incredible passion for the WIX brand and was a natural choice for where we see the brand heading in 2015 and beyond.”

Gibson previously served as brand manager for CARQUEST Filters, a brand WIX serviced for 25 years. During her five-year tenure on the CARQUEST brand, she managed the development and implementation of strategic marketing programs designed to drive brand awareness and sales revenue.
