Beck/Arnley has announced that Jacob Cartmill has joined the company as a product specialist.
In this role, Cartmill oversees brake hydraulics, including calipers, master cylinders, wheel cylinders and brake hoses. He is responsible for product management efforts such as the introduction of new products, determining target pricing, creating new product packaging, researching and developing new product applications and technical literature, and working with data management personnel on maintaining catalogue, interchange and pricing databases. Cartmill reports to Tom Fritsche, director of product management for Beck/Arnley.
Cartmill’s previous experience includes serving as a zone manager for AutoZone in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and as a commercial salesperson and driver for Advance Auto Parts in Louisville, Kentucky. Cartmill is a graduate of Western Kentucky University, where he earned a degree in English and a minor in writing.
“We’d like to welcome Jacob to our product team,” said Fritsche. “He is perfectly suited for the role of product specialist, given his previous experiences, knowledge of the foreign nameplate parts industry, and drive to service our customers’ needs. Jacob will play an important role at Beck/Arnley as we continue to grow.”
