Bathurst 1000 winner scores big new gig

BATHURST 1000 winner Paul Dumbrell has been announced as the new CEO of auto parts giant Bapcor.

Besides his vast racing credentials, which also includes a solo Supercars Championship race win and two Super2 titles, the 41-year-old former Triple Eight co-owner has become an increasingly significant player in the business sector.

His father Garry founded Autobarn, which these days is under the Bapcor umbrella.

Dumbrell had a two-plus-year stint as Bapcor’s chief operating officer before joining Total Tools as its CEO.

After five years there, where sales are reported to have nearly doubled, Dumbrell will return to Bapcor as CEO, starting on May 1 in place of the retiring Noel Meehan.

“After leaving Total Tools I had planned to take an extended break, but the opportunity to work alongside the Bapcor team is an exciting opportunity and I am very much looking forward to working with the leadership team and board to drive shareholder value,” said Dumbrell.

“I have a long history with Bapcor, and I look forward to seeing the full potential of the broader Group realised into the future alongside the exceptional teams within the business.”

In addition to Autobarn, Bapcor subsidiaries include Burson Auto Parts and Autopro.

Being an ASX-listed company, Bapcor has publicly reported Dumbrell will take on a base annual salary of AU$1.25 million.
