The Machine Tools Division of Murata Machinery USA Inc. has announced the promotion of Steve Landrum to North American sales manager for the Turning Division. He moves up to the position after four years as regional manager for turning in the company’s Southeast Gulf Coast territory.
Announcing the promotion, Kevin Wigington, general manager of the Machine Tools Division, said Landrum’s new position includes responsibility for all aspects of supporting Murata’s distribution network, including regional sales managers’ efforts to promote the company’s turning products.
“Steve is well-qualified for this position,” said Wigington. “His long, successful career in the machine tool business includes more than 20 years of experience in direct sales and sales management.”
“In the short term, Steve will continue to service the Southeast Gulf Coast territory,” Wigington continued, “and as general manager, I’ll continue to be involved in turning sales. But when the transition is complete, I’ll be able to devote more time to the Machine Tools Division’s fabrication and operations departments.”
“We appreciate the efforts of all our distributors, and we look forward to even greater successes with the addition of Steve Landrum as sales manager,” he concluded.
