Madison, Tennessee - After experiencing record sales in 2007, Marangoni Tread North America Inc. (MTNA) is expanding, adding a new region and two new regional sales managers to its staff.
Doug Edwardsen, formerly a Bandag Inc. executive, will be responsible for the newly created central region. He has worked in the tyre and retreading industry for more than 25 years, gaining experience in distribution and development of fleet and dealer sales, Marangoni said.
The company also hired Don Hunkeapillar to the position of sales manager for the southeast region, replacing Marge Connors, who is now the company's marketing and communications manager. Hunkeapillar has 20 years of experience in tyre and retreading, having worked for McGriff Industries and more recently as a regional manager for Michelin North America Inc.'s Tire Centers TCI LLC unit.
