Grote Industries has appointed two to its sales team.

For its aftermarket business, Malin Lewis has been named to cover the growing southern California territory for the company’s aftermarket business.

Prior to joining Grote, Malin earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from the University of Phoenix and most recently was the enrollment director at Options Animal, a stock trading skills building organization.

“Malin has wide and successful experience selling in the financial marketplace, said Matt Forner, director of aftermarket sales.  “His skills using a range of strategic growth strategies and his proven relationship building skills will be a benefit to our aftermarket partners and our sales team as well.”

Also, Ryan Taylor has joined Grote’s OEM sales team. He has experience in the lighting industry and also fleet accounts, Grote said.

“Ryan is covering the western OEM territory including key heavy duty trailer, equipment, body builder, and other existing OEM accounts in the western US,” said Kent Bode, Grote’s director of OEM sales.  “Ryan has deep experience in the heavy duty arena, previously employed at Phillips Industries as a territory sales manager, where he serviced customers with both OEM and aftermarket products.”
