It’s always great to see side-by-side and ATV manufacturers starting Q2 by hiring additional staff. And if the new hire is related to dealer development, it’s an even more important expansion of the staff. Here’s the scoop from Hisun Motor Corp., USA:
McKinney, Texas-based Hisun Motor Corp., USA has added industry veteran Greg Blackwell to help develop its dealer network.
Blackwell brings over 30 years of sales and sales management experience, having led executive roles at Metzeler/Pirelli, LeMans Corporation, KTM North America, MTA and Tucker.
“I’ve had the opportunity to work with [recent Hisun hires] Jason Walling, JJ Pecsok and Jamie Cheek in the past and I’m very impressed with what they are accomplishing together with the HISUN team. HISUN is definitely on the move and I want to work with the team to develop and grow the Southwest market,” Blackwell said.
In his role, Blackwell will work closely with Tyler Houghton, business development manager. Together, they will work to elevate the service and support of the current dealer base in the region, while cultivating new relationships and expanding the dealer footprint throughout the territory.
