Jon Jeffries assumed duties as director of trailer OEM sales, and account manager Pat Brandt came to the Hendrickson sales group from Dana Corp. following the acquisition of Dana’s trailer axle assets.

Jeffries provides direct supervision to the trailer account managers and maintains ongoing working relationships between Hendrickson Trailer Suspension Systems and OEMs in the United States and Canada, says Baine Adams, vice president of North American sales and marketing for Itasca, Ill.-based Hendrickson.

A nine-year veteran of Hendrickson, Jeffries has held a number of positions of increasing responsibility, including senior trailer account manager. Jeffries, who has more than 20 years in the transportation industry, will work out of Indianapolis.

Brandt, who assumed the position of trailer account manager reporting to Jeffries, joined the Hendrickson sales group from Dana. Working from Kalamazoo, Mich., Brandt maintains responsibility for the western United States. He served as business development manager at Dana for the past two years, capping 22 years in positions of increasing responsibility.

“We are pleased that Pat Brandt joined the Hendrickson family,” Adams says. “As our trailer business continues to evolve and grow, I am confident these additions will help us meet both our near- and long-terms goals.”
