A number of internal promotions are scheduled to be announced by KYB Americas in the coming weeks, including two newly created positions.
KYB Americas Corporation is committed to the growth and development of its associates, which includes promoting from within whenever possible.
Ryan Dickerman, KYB’s East Region Sales Manager, has been promoted to KYB Americas Corporation National Sales Manager. This newly created position will allow Ryan to utilize his background and experience to guide the KYB sales teams in the East, Central and West Regions.
Ryan has been with KYB for nearly 16 years. He started as a customer service representative in 2007 and has advanced through the organization.
His KYB resume includes roles as customer service manager, territory sales manager and the most recent position of regional sales manager. In that role, Ryan oversaw sales efforts in 23 states and Puerto Rico and managed 6 territorial managers.
“Ryan is a bright and energetic person that is highly regarded by customers and has earned the respect of the entire KYB organization. We look forward to Ryan leading our traditional sales team in the USA market,” says business director Mike Fiorito.
Ryan will report to Paul Kratzer, director of sales for Canada & USA.
“Ryan will do a great job managing our sales team,” according to Kratzer. “Ryan’s past roles at KYB have prepared him to take on the next level of responsibilities. His commitment to our customers and associates will lead him to success.”
“I’m thrilled to continue my career with KYB and I look forward to exploring all this new role has to offer.” Dickerman says.
