Stemco announced it is “strengthening the support, engineering and training capabilities” of its Wheel End division through the creation of three new area manager positions.
These new area managers will be responsible for bolstering the wheel end division with technical training and sales support at the fleet, distributor and OEM levels, and marketing and engineering initiatives through field testing and end user interactions, the company said.
Together, the three new area managers — Steve Robinson, Randy Puls and Mike Codling — bring more than 85 combined years of experience in wheel end product development and sales to their new roles, Stemco added.
Robinson will be supporting Eastern Canada, the Northeast and part of the Southeast region. According to the company, he spent the last five years as a suspension area manager, and before that was a district sales manager for 10 years with Stemco. “Steve also spent 15 years with SKF as a territory manager and has a tremendous wealth of knowledge in wheel end products,” Stemco noted.
Puls will be supporting the central part of the Southeastern regions. According to the company, Puls has spent the last 26 years as a district sales manager with Stemco. “Randy has trained a countless number of other district sales managers on best practices for selling, properly maintaining, diagnosing and servicing wheel ends,” according to the company.
Codling will be supporting the western region and Western Canada. Stemco said he has spent the last 15 years as the district sales manager for territory 240, which include the states of Oregon and Washington. Prior to coming to Stemco, Codling spent almost 20 years in various sales and management roles at an International dealer in Portland, OR, the company added.
