American Kenda Rubber Industrial Co. Ltd. is adding Phyllis Zollner to its sales team in the North Automotive business unit as southeast sales manager.
Zollner will report to Vice President Brandon Stotsenburg.
“We are excited to have Phyllis as part of our team sharing the goal to accelerate Kenda’s strong sales and brand awareness in the PCR and LTR segment with top level performance at a Tier 3 value price," says Stotsenburg. "Kenda has strong distributor partners in this region and Phyllis will be a strong contributor to growing our sales with them.”
She spent several years in a business development sales role in the midwest, and previously spent nearly 18 years with Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and its subsidiary Kelly-Springfield in numerous roles.
Zollner says, “It’s a great time to be a part of the Kenda team with the introduction of the new KR400 Ultra High Performance tire in 43 sizes. I know how to help retailers maximize Kenda as a 'go to brand' with a strong profit opportunity. I have cherished the relationships I’ve forged in the tire industry over the years. There are no greater people than those in this industry and I am so excited to be back and am looking forward to partnering with Kenda’s distributors and their Traction retailers in the southeast region."
