Harry Maziar is an author and philanthropist whose career has combined family, business, and community. For 27 years, he served as President of Zep Manufacturing Company, which grossed nearly a billion in annual revenue. You may be familiar with some of their automotive brands, such as Armor-All, Black Magic, and Rain-X.
Originally a sales representative, Maziar was so successful he was named the company’s first Director of Sales and he led 2,000 direct salespeople who produced double-digit growth for 25 straight years.
Maziar retired as Chairman of the Chemical Division of National Service, then a publicly traded NYSE company.
Maziar jokes that he has failed retirement as he has busied himself with both for-profit and non-profit endeavors. One of his proudest achievements in retirement has been completion of his book "Story Selling: Sage Advice and Common Sense About Sales and Success."
