In his new role, Keefe will lead the marketing team. Before joining Hennessy in 2001, he worked at GE Industrial Systems in various marketing and product management roles.

Vanderheyden manages all aspects of his product lines, which include brake lathes and brake lathe accessories, wheel balancers (including heavy duty models), wheel balancer accessories and wheel weights. He joined Hennessy as a buyer/planner in February 2001 before moving to marketing as an associate product manager in May 2002. He then spent two years in the sales department as a key account manager.

Vecci, who joined the company in 2004 after serving six years at Energes Inc. as an account manager/consultant, has product management responsibilities for all of Hennessy's tire changers, tire changer accessories, lifts and alignment.

Williams recently joined the marketing organization after serving as customer service supervisor for Hennessy. She has worked at Hennessy for 19 years and is responsible for coordinating and executing all commercial activities, including advertising, literature, promotions and incentives, trade shows and public relations.
