Bartec USA LLC has hired Sean Mackinnon as national sales manager, north.
He most recently worked for the Tire Industry Association (TIA) as a wheel and tire service expert and trainer.
“Bartec has always operated with the ‘train first, sell second’ philosophy and Sean brings a truckload of experience and knowledge and will be a huge asset for our distributor partners and the end users of our products,” says Bartec CEO Scot Holloway. “As Bartec continues to broaden our product line into other vehicle service areas, we needed someone with a solid automotive service background and Sean is that guy!”
“Sean has a solid ability to manage sales, marketing and product training; and he has the right balance of sales and technical expertise which makes Sean an asset on day one,” adds Steve Long, Bartec director of sales.
While at TIA, Mackinnon presided over the Automotive Tire Service (ATS) program as the director of automotive training and development and was instrumental in the successful training of automotive service professionals all throughout North America. As a certified ATS trainer, Mackinnon will also keep the entire Bartec sales force certified and current with vehicle technology.
