June 26, 2015

Alliance Tire Americas Inc. recently added a number of new hires, including an agricultural product manager.

"We’re building staff in areas that matter to our customers, from sales and customer service to our warehouse teams,” says Bruce Besancon, vice president of marketing. “We are continually building our capacity to get Alliance, Galaxy, Primex and Aeolus tires to them faster and more efficiently, then follow up with outstanding service in the field.”

The new Alliance Tire team members are:

* Trent Wallin, agricultural product manager, who will split his time between the company’s Wakefield, Mass., headquarters and an office in Indianola, Iowa.

* Mark Hipkins, warehouse manager, Memphis, Tenn.

* Ross Crory, supply chain analyst, Wakefield, Mass.

* Lee Janerico, customer service representative, Wakefield, Mass.

Wallin spent the last eight years on the national ag sales team of Tyres 4 U, Australia’s leading independent tire distributor. At Tyres 4 U, he gained experience in all aspects of the farm tire industry, including sales, marketing, tire testing and technical support for farmers in the field.

Most recently, he was the company’s national sales manager for agricultural tires before joining Alliance Tire in the U.S.

“In his role as agricultural product manager, he will assist in the development of new products, as well as promoting and developing the current line of high-tech agricultural tires that the Alliance Tire Group has developed for the North American market,” says Besancon.
