ADDISON, Ill. (April 17, 2008) — Shock absorber and strut maker KYB America L.L.C. has named Paul Kratzer director of sales.
Mr. Kratzer joined Addison-based KYB in 1999 and has prior management experience working for manufacturers and distributors, the company said.
“As we continue to expand our North American aftermarket business it is critical to have someone with Paul's experience and leadership skills in this role,” KYB Vice President Mike Fiorito said. “As western region director, Paul did an extraordinary job increasing sales with our distribution partners by helping oversee the implementation of KYB's 'Ride Control Solutions' training initiative.”
In his new position, Mr. Kratzer will be responsible for KYB's aftermarket sales in the U.S. The company also supplies shocks and struts to vehicle manufacturers.
