Five Star Race Car Bodies, based in Twin Lakes, WI announced today that Steve Einhaus will be joining their team as a new Key Programs Manager. The position will focus on serving current, loyal customers and developing brand presence in new racing markets. “We have some pretty exciting things on the horizon and my job will be to drive those programs while managing current relationships and building new ones along the way,” said Steve Einhaus.
Einhaus will bring Five Star and its customers over 20 years in motorsports knowledge and experience with an aggressive approach at future development and new projects at Five Star. His sales experience and industry connections along with a focused new business approach, is a win-win for both sides. After announcing his resignation from co-ownership with the ARCA Midwest Tour, Einhaus quickly connected with Five Star Owner, Carl Schultz.
“We have had some brief discussions over time about the diversification at Five Star and about what the future holds. “Carl called, we went for lunch right away and here we are today. I can’t think of another company that I would like to work for more and I felt I had a lot to bring to the table to help them take things to the next level,” stated Einhaus. These guys are like family, they are all friends of mine and I really like how advanced they are compared to the rest of the composite world across the US.”
Schultz felt it was an immediate fit for their continued expansion for the future and is excited to add Einhaus to his team.
“We are proud of the strong relationship we shared with Steve for several years. After word came of his departure from the ARCA Midwest Tour, we felt the timing was perfect for both of us to align. Our company will be stronger with his racing industry experience and we look forward to a great future together,” stated Schultz.
Five Star has been in business since 1979. They are a leading company within industry with over 100 employees and over 185,000 square feet of floor space dedicated to the design, manufacture, and distribution of body panels, windows and accessories.
Five Star continues to explore new opportunities and Einhaus says that opportunity is exciting. “Five Star continues to be dedicated to innovation. As we accept large, more advanced projects and emerge into new markets and industries, we will continue to maintain our deep roots in auto racing, putting our experience and expertise to work for you, our valued customers, by providing durable, high quality parts for years to come,” added Einhaus.
