Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) December 08, 2014
Milwaukee Electronics has named Jered Stoehr as its new vice president of sales and marketing. Stoehr replaces Rick Cummings, who will be retiring on Jan. 9, 2015, after five years in the role. The two will go through a focused transition this month.
In his new role, Stoehr will have responsibility for all of Milwaukee Electronics’ sales and marketing activities and will report directly to Milwaukee Electronics’ CEO. He will be directly responsible for sales activity in Northern California, Oregon, Washington and Idaho. The rest of the sales team will continue to manage their respective territories but will report to Stoehr. He will also continue to have responsibility for Milwaukee Electronics’ India Tech Center. He is based in Milwaukee Electronics’ Portland, Oregon electronics manufacturing services (EMS) facility.
“I’ve enjoyed my time with Milwaukee Electronics. It’s been great to be a part of the significant growth and capabilities expansion that we’ve experienced,” said Cummings.
Stoehr has been with Milwaukee Electronics for 10 years, most recently serving as director of corporate marketing.
“Jered’s background in business development, marketing and operations at Milwaukee Electronics made him the right candidate for this promotion. He also brings strong global perspective to this role,” said Mike Stoehr, Milwaukee Electronics’ CEO.
Stoehr began his career at Milwaukee Electronics in the Screaming Circuits business unit. He was later transferred to Asia, and in that capacity was responsible for establishing the Company’s Singapore International Purchasing Office and India Tech Center.
“It’s nice to be back in the USA with an opportunity to grow with the company. Our EMS business unit is growing and I look forward to leading that sales effort,” said Stoehr.
Stoehr received an MBA degree in Marketing and China Studies from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and the National University of Singapore. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in entrepreneurship from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. In addition to English, he is fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
