Dallas, Texas…January 22, 2013… Dallas Airmotive has announced a restructuring of its U.S. sales organization to more closely align its sales personnel with customer base locations. “We are redeploying our people assets in a more focused and regionalized approach,” stated Willy Harmon, Vice President Sales. “This will bring our sales team closer to key customer locations, require less travel, and enable faster response time.”
Dallas Airmotive U.S. sales will now be organized around Territorial Directors supported by a team of Regional Engine Managers. “Each of our sales personnel will now represent our entire product offering so that customers will have one point of contact,” continued Harmon. “This will eliminate multiple sales people calling on mixed fleet operators and help establish deeper relationships within our customer base.”
As a result of the restructuring, the following personnel will assume new or expanded duties.
Jim Blasingame, Senior Sales Director will handle the company’s major accounts, OEM relationships, and sales support. Blasingame formerly handled sales for Rolls-Royce engine services and company fleet accounts.
Jeff Turner is appointed Territorial Director for the Western USA. He had served as Sales Director for Pratt & Whitney Canada programs.
Jeff Dunn is now Territorial Director for Central USA. Dunn had served as Regional Engine Manager for Pratt & Whitney Canada products.
Randy Sasser is appointed Territorial Director for the Southeast USA. Sasser had served as Regional Engine Manager for Honeywell products.
Mike Frazier is appointed Territorial Director for the Northeast USA. Frazier had served as Regional Engine Manager for Pratt & Whitney Canada products.
In addition to the above changes, Mark Russo who had been Sales Director for the Honeywell program will take the position of Program Director for APU products at Dallas Airmotive. Russo is a well regarded resource among corporate operators for his knowledge of APU products and servicing.
