The Regional Sales Managers will report to Bret Julian who has been promoted to the position of Sales Director for the Forage Solutions Segment. Julian, who has been with the company for seven years, will focus on beef and dairy markets in North America, and help Vermeer continue to pursue the emerging biomass market.
“The culture at Vermeer revolves around developing proven, practical innovations, and delivering high quality equipment to operators throughout North America and across the globe,” said Julian. “This sales restructure will allow us to focus on specific areas of our industry in targeted regions giving us the opportunity to better align our efforts at a local level.”
New Forage Solutions Training Department
To facilitate improved training to Vermeer Forage Solutions Dealers, Kert Thielen joined the company earlier this year as the Forage Solutions Training Manager. With 20 years experience in the training and development arena, sales, factory automation, technical service training and the aviation industry, Thielen believes the most successful training programs are those designed to be applicable to business operations and accessible to personnel.
Thielen is committed to making these training resources more applicable and accessible to dealers and staff. Alongside Thielen, Amantha Jackson and Bob Peterson, newly hired Senior Training Development Specialists, will work directly with dealers to execute dealer training programs.
