STEMCO, a manufacturer of heavy-duty components and solutions for commercial vehicles, 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.
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.
Robinson will be supporting Eastern Canada, the Northeast and part of the Southeast region. Robinson spent the past five years as a suspension area manager, and before that was a district sales manager for 10 years with STEMCO. Robinson also spent 15 years with SKF as a territory manager and has a tremendous wealth of knowledge in wheel end products.
Puls will be supporting the Central part of the Southeastern regions. Puls has spent the past 26 years as a district sales manager with STEMCO. Puls has trained a countless number of other district sales managers on best practices for selling, properly maintaining, diagnosing and servicing wheel ends.
Codling will be supporting the Western Region and Western Canada. Codling has spent the past 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, Oregon.
The three men will begin their new positions immediately, while concurrently assisting in the training and support of their replacements.
