Cargo control solutions manufacturer Kinedyne LLC announced it hired Lance Hickey as market segment manager for Curtainside Solutions and Joe Vergel de Dios as market segment manager for Decking Solutions.
“We are excited to add these industry veterans to our management team,” says Dan Schlotterbeck, Kinedyne president. “With their extensive industry experience and skills, they will lead strategic business growth for these market segments for Kinedyne. They are well-suited to demonstrate to customers how Kinedyne Curtainside and Decking Solutions can help optimize fleets to do more with less.”
Hickey’s focus is on growing and expanding sales of Kinedyne’s curtainside products such as Kin-Sider and Kin-Slider through original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and distribution channels. Kinedyne says its curtainside products are designed to provide quick and easy access to cargo anywhere on a trailer to reduce cargo loading and unloading times and create scheduling flexibility.
Vergel de Dios leads sales of Kaptive Beam K1 and K2 double-decking trailer systems that can double the capacity of a dry van and make it possible to secure up to twice as much freight, Kinedyne says. He is charged with the development and further growth of this market segment throughout North America.
Kinedyne adds both executives bring a wealth of experience to their respective roles.
Hickey has over 20 years of sales and business development experience, marked by progressive growth and extensive formal training in sales and sales leadership. He has managed territories for a range of trucking industry suppliers, run a start-up ELD subscription-based service and managed a truck and trailer upfitter’s parts and services department.
Vergel de Dios has more than 15 years of leadership experience in trucking, transportation, and logistics. He holds an MBA from the Keller Graduate School of Management and is a United States Marine Corps veteran who served in Operation Enduring Freedom.
