Takeuchi this week named two new regional managers. Shay Klusmeyer was named regional manager covering all sales development and activity within Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and West Texas. Also, Jeremy Lindsay was hired as regional manager for Canada and Alaska.
Klusmeyer’s main responsibility is to achieve region market share objectives through dealer activities such as development, recruiting, goal setting, sales planning and performance evaluations. His other areas of focus will include inventory control, program promotion and communication, forecasting, and national and direct rental account support.
With eight years of sales experience, Klusmeyer has worked for manufacturers throughout his career. Most recently, he was a regional business manager for Mahindra Americas, where he oversaw the growth and development of different product lines.
“Shay is a go-getter with an excellent track record and a really well-rounded portfolio in his professional career,” said Kim Robinson, director of dealer development at Takeuchi. “We believe he can take us to an even higher level in his territory and are looking forward to having him on our team.”
Klusmeyer graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics in 2011 from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Okla. Also, he plans to graduate with a Master of Business Administration in December from Oklahoma State.
Lindsay has more than 17 years of sales experience with manufacturers. Most recently, he was a regional manager at Genesis Attachments LLC. in Superior, Wis., where he was responsible for direct sales and management of its dealer channel in his territory.
“We are starting to make headway in Canada, which is a continuously growing market for us,” said Robinson, “With Jeremy’s track record and experience working with manufacturers, we know he will do a great job in Canada and Alaska, and we are happy for him to join the team.”
