The Aftermarket Business Unit of Webb Wheel Products Inc. has hired three industry veterans to join their OES sales staff. They will report directly to Ken Kelley, vice president of sales, marketing and business development:
• Nate Nielsen, Southeast OES sales manager, joins Webb Wheel after nearly 10 years with Paccar, where he most recently was district parts manager for Paccar Parts and previously held positions of increasing responsibility with Peterbilt Corp.
• Don Fritz, Northeast OES sales manager, has worked in the commercial vehicle industry for more than 30 years. Prior to joining Webb, he was district parts manager for Mack Trucks/Volvo Trucks North America. Fritz also has held sales and managerial positions with Gunite, Rockford Truck Sales, Truck TranServ, Cummins Mid-State Power and Lunde Truck Sales.
• Robert Lanshe, Midwest OES sales manager, was district sales manager for the Supreme Corp. managing truck body and equipment division sales before accepting his new position with Webb Wheel. Since 1984, Lanshe has accumulated commercial vehicle experience working for Mack Trucks, GE Capital Fleet Services, Manac Trailers, Paccar and GM-Allison Transmission in positions relating to fleet and dealer sales.
“We are extremely pleased to have these three industry veterans join our OES sales team,” Kelley says. “Our customers will be well served by Nate, Robert and Don with their commercial vehicle parts experience, and we expect to increase our share of the wheel-end aftermarket with their help.”
