Wes Watkins Named Territory Sales Manager, Southeastern U.S.
Pella, IA – Thunder Creek Equipment has named Wes Watkins as the company’s new territory sales manager for the southeastern United States covering Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. Watkins has spent the last 15 years serving the construction and earthmoving world in these states in a variety of sales and sales leadership roles for major manufacturers and equipment dealers.
Thunder Creek manufactures and sells a full range of mobile fueling and service solutions. This includes the original multi-tank, bulk diesel trailers that allow businesses to haul up to 920 gallons of diesel without a HAZMAT endorsement, similar truck-mounted systems, and the company’s proprietary 2-in-1 closed-loop system for handling diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
“Wes brings in a specific knowledge and expertise of the heavy, off-road market that will bolster our organic growth and dealer network development in the region,” says Larry Lea, vice president of sales, Thunder Creek Equipment. “The southeast is experiencing significant growth and the Thunder Creek product line, matched with Wes’ network and abilities is a recipe to deliver all new levels of productivity and efficiency to businesses in the region.”
“I grew up in this industry and this region — and I’ve never felt that there’s a better match of jobsite solution and real-world challenges than what we’re bringing to market with Thunder Creek today,” says Watkins. “I look forward to traveling throughout the southeast, visiting familiar faces, and sharing with them the real ways Thunder Creek improves businesses that live and work off-road.”
