KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Oct. 14, 2014) — Performance wheel maker WELD Racing has promoted Mike Mulcahy to vice president of sales.
Mr. Mulcahy, who joined WELD in March 2014 as vice president of the company's street and truck business lines, assumes all sales responsibilities — including street performance, truck and motorsports — for the Kansas City-based company after a career as an executive with Federal-Mogul Corp. as well as running his own client-focused motorsports business.
WELD also announced that it has added Greg Bennett to its sales and marketing team. He assumes responsibility for trackside service and sales for WELD's drag racing and oval track racing product lines. WELD said Mr. Bennett will oversee its close collaboration with professional and sportsman racers “to ensure that WELD's partners continue to dominate the winner's circle.”
Mr. Bennett joins the company after more than a decade of involvement in NHRA professional drag racing with numerous race teams including Bob Vandergriff Racing and Steve Johnson Racing. His background “as a lifelong motorsport enthusiast provides him with key insights into the performance market. This knowledge will ensure that WELD customers receive unmatched levels of support,” WELD said.
Norm Young, WELD's president and CEO, said the company “is poised for another year of strong growth in 2015 and beyond. The promotion of Mike with added sales responsibilities and the addition of Greg to trackside support further strengthens our team and gives us the opportunity to continue to serve our customers with excellence.”
