Stellar names inside sales, regional mangers

Stellar Industries has restructured a portion of its sales department.

Keith Formanek, previously manager of the Midwest region, accepted the newly created position of inside sales manager. His responsibilities include being the liaison among sales, engineering and production departments, auditing customer orders, assisting regional sales managers while they’re traveling and fielding incoming customer inquiries.

Gary Hanson will replace Formanek as Midwest manager. He formerly covered the Western United States and Canada, which Steve Jones will now handle. Jones was sales manager for 15 years at Bob’s Services, a Stellar truck equipment distributor in Anchorage, Alaska. His responsibilities will include managing the distribution network in his region while focusing on expansion of market share.
