Penray adds to management team

The Penray Companies has expanded its sales team, including naming a new senior vice president of sales.

William Nonnamaker has joined the company as senior vice president of sales, responsible for setting a strategic direction for the sales function within the company’s automotive, heavy-duty, private label, and international sales efforts, said David Sholtis, CEO. Nonnamaker was most recently in a sales management position at Wells Vehicle Electronics.

Also, Randy Fowler has assumed the position of vice president, private label, responsible for enhanced focus and sales building of the company’s private-branded business.

Mark Kardon has joined as director of marketing. In this role he will direct all of Penray’s marketing efforts regarding new products, product management, development of sales tools, and customer communication. Kardon joins Penray from AFX Lighting, Inc.

Steve Abrams is the new director of operations, with overall responsibility for manufacturing facilities, production, scheduling, shipping and materials sourcing. Abrams comes to Penray from UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, and replaces the retiring Tom Chess. Chess is a 30-year veteran of Penray, having directed numerous facilities projects ensuring that Penray’s manufacturing and packaging plants have grown and adapted to meet the changing needs of the business.

“Penray has a tremendous track record of sales growth and product innovation,” said Sholtis. “As a well-planned vertically-integrated company, we have built on product innovation and customer service to achieve sales success, both here and internationally. This new management team is poised to propel us to an even greater level of success.”
