Valentine's day: ARI hires director of OEM sales
ARI Network Services has hired David Valentine as its director of OEM sales. He will be responsible for all of ARI’s sales activities for manufacturers in the automotive tire and wheel, powersports, outdoor power equipment, marine, RV and white goods industries.
Most recently, Valentine (pictured at left), served as vice president of sales for gFAXX LLC, an online business intelligence source focused on the construction and agriculture industries. Prior to joining gFAXX, he was the national sales manager for PowerSports Network and RV Web Services.
"I first met David when he was national sales manager for PowerSports Network, one of ARI’s competitors in the powersports marketplace," says Roy Olivier, CEO and president. "I was immediately impressed by his professionalism and in-depth knowledge of the unique needs of dealers in the industry.
"David brings extensive industry expertise and a stellar track record of success to ARI. With more than a decade of experience working with dealers, distributors and OEMs in our vertical markets, David is an excellent fit for the ARI team.”
