Donaldson Co. announced the promotion of Dan Memmen to national sales director of the Engine Aftermarket Group, responsible for leading the sales strategy and execution for Donaldson Engine Aftermarket distribution and private label sales activity in the United States and Canada.
Memmen began his career at Donaldson in 2007 as director of John Deere Sales and moved into his most recent position as director of Global Truck Markets in December 2008. Prior to joining Donaldson, he served as the national sales manager for Schumacher Electric Co., leading the development, branding and launch of commercial battery charger and jump starter products. Prior to Schumacher, Memmen was the director of commercial equipment sales for Century Manufacturing.
“In his current role with Donaldson, Dan has been instrumental in elevating our Global Truck OEM sales team’s effectiveness in the marketplace, allowing us to gain share,” says Joe Lehman, vice president of the Engine Aftermarket Group at Donaldson. “His leadership, creativity and prior experience in distribution will make him an excellent leader for our national sales team.”
Memmen steps in to replace Rick Kashmerick, who will retire from the company in August after 26 years. Kashmerick has held several key sales management positions during his tenure with Donaldson. “We want to thank Rick for his dedication to Donaldson,” Lehman says. “His tireless commitment to the Engine Aftermarket business has grown our domestic market tenfold. We wish him all the best in his retirement.”
