Tecumseh Products Co. has created a new wholesale-distributor sales organizations. The group is made up of two company veterans and four new sales engineers.

Brandon Stewart, Doug Potvin, Robert Chandler and Rick Rasch were named regional sales engineers. They will join Mark Fowler and Rich Watson on the team to form a national sales team for Tecumseh. The team will call directly on its wholesale distributor customers.

“We made a strategic business decision to go direct with our new sales team in order to get closer to our wholesale customers,” said Tim Wright, North American wholesale manager for Tecumseh. “The multi-line sales reps Tecumseh worked with in the past did a great job, but we believe the time is right to strengthen our commitment to the wholesale channel with direct representation.”
