Husky Family of Companies Targets Automotive, Commercial Growth

PACIFIC, MO – Husky Corporation, which recently added BJE tank monitoring systems and Hewitt aviation products to its industry-leading fuel nozzle and accessory business, welcomes Doug Payne as its new Manager of Independent Channels. In this newly created position, Mr. Payne will identify market growth opportunities for the company’s product line in the Automotive, Internet, Agriculture, Catalog, and Commercial channels of distribution.


Payne is intimately familiar with the automotive aftermarket through several sales and management positions at NAPA, a division of Genuine Parts Company, where he rose to Western Regional Sales Manager. Payne held nationally oriented sales and management positions at Rockford Products Corporation, Thermadyne Industries Inc., and Port-A-Cool LLC where he focused on customer acquisition through new distribution channels.

“We are excited to have Doug on our team to develop new relationships for Husky, BJE, and Hewitt products with non-PEI customers,” said Husky Executive Vice President Brad Baker. “There are significant growth opportunities for our current product line and our new offerings that solve customer problems.”

“Husky is exactly the right company for me. They have great products for independent customers. We will show how our product innovation meets marketplace needs,” Payne said.

A West Virginia native who graduated from Glenville State College, Payne has lived with his wife and son for the past eight years in Pacific, Missouri.
