Kinedyne Corp. announced a number of changes to its U.S. sales team, with a collective goal of providing an even higher level of customer service. Among these changes is the establishment of a national OEM account manager position that will be responsible for managing the company’s efforts to service original equipment trailer manufacturers and work closely with them to identify their needs and provide them with solutions.
Assuming this new role is Scott Frazier, a veteran member of Kinedyne’s U.S. sales team who previously served as an account executive covering the company’s Midwest region. The company also announced the addition of two new members to its U.S. sales team. Troy Davenport has taken over Frazier’s previous position, while Robert Warren has assumed an account executive position with the team.
“Kinedyne holds an industrywide reputation for the exceptional service we provide to all our customers, and our sales team is absolutely central to that accomplishment,” says Larry Harrison, Kindeyne’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We have an ongoing commitment to seek out exceptional high-caliber individuals to represent our company. Our sales management team, including both Mike Hauer – director of sales, United States – and I, are totally confident our customers will agree with us that Scott, Troy and Robert all fit the bill perfectly.”
Frazier, a resident of Illinois, joined Kinedyne in 2006 after holding various sales positions with American Woodmark Corp. and Hitachi Power Tools. He will be tasked with developing load securement solutions to some of the common challenges that flatbed and van trailer builders face in today’s market.
“With our OEM customer’s unique requirements, Scott will work closely with our recently appointed sales engineer – Todd Jenkins – to address those needs,” Harrison says. “Whether they are manufacturing new trailers or retrofitting existing trailers, Scott and Todd will work exclusively with the OEM segment to specify existing products, design new solutions and to ensure that the needs of their customers – the trucking fleets – are met.”
Davenport comes to Kinedyne after holding multiple sales positions, including posts with Truck-Lite and Competition Tire West-Penske Racing Shocks. Warren held positions at several companies within the transport industry, including MHC Kenworth and FedEx Freight, as well as serving five years in the U.S. Navy. He now is responsible for Kinedyne’s South Central and Plains sales regions.
