MALDEN, Mass. (Nov. 27, 2002) — Michael Foxhoven will start Dec. 2 in the new position as Malden-based Galaxy Tire & Wheel Inc.'s national sales manager for aftermarket sales.
Starting Jan. 1, Mr. Foxhoven will be temporarily assigned to Galaxy's sales and distribution office in Hayward, Calif., where he will help the company strengthen its West Coast presence with existing and new customers, the company said.
After he restructures that office, Galaxy said Mr. Foxhoven will move to the company's Boston-area headquarters to handle aftermarket sales operations.
Neil Ganz, Galaxy managing director, said the company needed to put more effort into its West Coast office, which was established in 1989. "We´ve been growing and we felt the need to better handle our customers," he told Tire Business.
Most recently, Mr. Foxhoven was national sales director for Findlay, Ohio-based Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. Prior to that, he had worked as a district manager for Bridgestone/Firestone's West Coast operations.
