Mike Fullen has been named Arnco's national sales manager, reports company President Larry Carapellotti.

In March 2006, he was named product and sales training manager, with full-time responsibility for Arnco University and for in-house training and support of the Arnco sales team.

Harris has had a 31-year career in the tire industry. In 1976, she joined Russ Chandler & Associates as an industrial tire dealer sales representative. She served as sales manager for Sterling Industrial Tire Co. from 1985 through 1986, and was vice president of sales for Synair Corp. for six years before joining Arnco in 1992 as director of sales.
