Cardone Industries will introduce several new product categories at the Automotive Aftermarket Parts Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas later this year.
The company made the announcement yesterday at the opening of its annual national sales conference in Fort Worth, Texas, yesterday.
In opening the sales conference, Michael Cardone, III, addressed future plans to work closely with channel partners to yield increased returns that benefit both parties.
CEO Kevin Cramton presented a number of plans for the company’s future, including heavy investment in Cardone’s core operating business, category management development, and demand-planning initiatives to drive improved customer satisfaction. Another topic of discussion was the evolving role of Cardone’s salespeople.
George Dunham, executive vice president of sales and marketing, announced that Dan Billie has been promoted to senior vice president of sales. Previously responsible for half of Cardone’s sales, he now leads the entire sales division. Reporting to Dan are Jayme Farina, Calvin Kaemmerer, Ron Spuhler and Tim Rhodes, who have all been promoted to the position of Channel Vice President.
Founded in 1970, Cardone Industries is a privately held, family-owned and operated company headquartered in Philadelphia.
