Rob Wolske of Methuen has been hired as director of finance and accounting. Wolske comes to 1A Auto with extensive experience in corporate finance with manufacturing retail and food-brand companies.

“I’m excited to have Rob join the 1A Auto team,” Green said. “Rob’s talents will allow us to achieve planned, scalable growth with confidence for years to come.”

Geoff Diehl, a former Massachusetts state representative and U.S. Senate candidate, has been hired as director of business development. In addition to Diehl’s extensive experience in politics, as a business owner he has vast knowledge in business development and sales. Diehl will focus on enhancing 1A Auto’s growth potential through B2B opportunities.

“Diehl’s unique ability to connect with people, coupled with his past experience as an elected official, is a perfect fit to enhance multiple sales channels for 1A Auto,” Green said.

The Pepperell-based 1A Auto is the largest online auto-parts retailer. Starting as a fledgling company that sold parts out of a small family garage, 1A Auto has transformed into the high-tech online aftermarket auto-parts retailer it is today. The Green family mission is to empower people and provide them with the solutions to accomplish their own auto repairs.

In addition to Pepperell, 1A Auto has facilities in Florida, Kansas and Nevada.
