Edward Koczan is the newest member of the automotive sales team at American Kenda Rubber Industrial Co. Ltd.

In his new role as sales manager, Koczan's duties will include managing strategic accounts, driving growth of Kenda’s automotive tire channel sales, and identifying new partner growth opportunities.

Koczan has worked in tire manufacturing for nearly 10 years.  Prior to joining Kenda he worked for several tire brands including Toyo, Nexen, and Sentury Tire North America.

The company says Koczan will contribute to enhancing Kenda’s Light Truck Boot Camp dealer experiential incentive program, the Kenda Traction associate dealer program, product education, and dealer training initiatives for Kenda’s existing dealer partners.
