PORTLAND, Ore. – PIAA Corporation USA has promoted Curt Bryant to operations manager.

Bryant, whose title became official Feb. 1, previously served as controller for PIAA, where his responsibilities expanded to include managing the company’s warehousing and logistics, customer service, marketing and sales support and e-commerce activities.

Prior to joining PIAA, Bryant was a financial administrator for JPMorgan Chase & Co. where he managed banking and investment strategies. Before that he served as director of sales and marketing for LRD Performance Specialties Inc., a supplier of aftermarket accessories. And he previously served as senior merchandiser for SAS Retail Merchandising.

Rodger Wagner, Executive Vice President for PIAA’s North American operations, highlighted Bryant’s background as key to his expanded responsibilities with PIAA.

“Curt has done a terrific job as controller here at PIAA,” Wagner said. “But we knew from his background that he brought extensive sales and marketing experience skills and insights that are not commonly found in financial experts. When you add in his specific experience with automotive and powersports marketing, you find a person with unique credentials that fit particularly well with PIAA’s business model.”

Bryant lives in the Portland area with his wife and two children, and is an outdoorsman and powersports enthusiast. He holds a bachelor's degree in marketing from Portland State University, and an master's in business administration from Marylhurst University.
