William “Bill” R. Nonnamaker has been appointed vice president of sales and marketing for Wells Manufacturing, L.P. He is responsible for all sales, marketing and customer support activities for the company.
Nonnamaker joins Wells after having held a series of increasingly responsible sales and marketing positions (most recently executive director of sales and field support) over a 10-year period with Johnson Controls, Milwaukee. Prior to that, he served in a number of key sales positions over a 17-year period with Cooper Tire & Rubber Company in Findlay, Ohio.
“Bill brings a wealth of industry contacts and relationships, which will greatly assist us in our efforts to grow our customer base,” said Wells president David Peace. “He has extensive experience in managing multiple channels of distribution, introducing new products and building new-business activity.”
Nonnamaker earned a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University, East Lansing, Mich., and master of business administration degree from Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio. He and his family reside in Pewaukee, Wis.
In a related move, Steve Hildebrand will take on the new role of vice president-marketing, reporting to Nonnamaker.
