American Kenda Rubber has hired two employees for its North American Automotive business team. Hayley Milne is the marketing manager, and Jin Daniels will work in inside sales and customer service.
Both will report to Brandon Stotsenburg, vice president of automotive.
Stotsenburg says, “We are excited to be growing with team members sharing the goal to accelerate Kenda’s strong sales and brand awareness in the PCR & LTR segment with premium performance at a value price.”
Milne comes with an extensive agency background bringing expertise in marketing, digital and brand development. She will lead the marketing efforts for Kenda’s automotive group to revitalize and grow the brand among customers, distributors and dealers.
“I was drawn to Kenda by the high quality of the products and brand, as well as the major potential for growth within the automotive division,” Milne says. “I am excited to be a part of Kenda during this exciting time.” Daniels has experience in logistics, customer management and safety while working in both corporate and small business settings.
“With our new Vietnam plant beginning to ship products to North America, we are pleased to add Jin to our team to help with our increasing customer demand for the Kenda products,” says Stotsenburg.
The new Vezda Touring and Klever R/T tires developed by the Kenda America Technical Center will begin shipping this spring.
