EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Accuride Corp., a supplier of commercial vehicle wheels and wheel-end components and assemblies, has realigned its sales and marketing organization following the May 1 acquisition of wheel supplier KIC L.L.C.
The new organizational structure and assignments are aimed at strengthening the geographic coverage of Accuride's regional sales team and assigns sales leaders to direct customer relationship and business growth in the OEM, trailer, aftermarket and military business segments, the company said.
As part of the reorganization, Accuride promoted Chad Monroe to senior vice president, sales, marketing and business development, to lead its global sales and marketing function.
Mr. Monroe will be responsible for continued expansion of Accuride's Wheels, Gunite and KIC businesses. He previously served as vice president, OEM sales and business development, since 2014.
"Accuride has re-shaped our sales and marketing team to better serve our global customers and support the strategic expansion of our business," Accuride President and CEO Rick Dauch said. "This new structure — which benefits from the addition of veteran KIC sales personnel — broadens our regional coverage to increase customer contact and service worldwide."
