Bartec USA has named Ed Jones its new director of sales, overseeing the company’s North American sales team.
No longer using independent sales reps to support its customers, Bartec is currently building a new team made up of company associates.
“This direct approach will mean better service and support for our end users and distributors alike,” says Bartec CEO Scott Holloway. “Ed will oversee and manage the building of this sales team, as well as the continued growth of our customers.”
Jones has held sales, marketing, manufacturing and product development positions during his 40-year automotive aftermarket career.
“With over 20 years of experience in the tire supply and repair industry, and 13 years of tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) experience, Ed has worked closely with numerous national tire retailers, automotive parts distributors, tire distributors and tire supply (wholesale-distributors) to develop products and programs specific to the tire repair shops,” say Bartec officials.
“He has conducted hundreds of TPMS training dealer clinics nationwide since 2008 and is very effective at communicating this expertise to all levels of distribution.”
