Industry Veterans Will Support New and Existing Customers in Southeast and Midwest
Bridgewater, NJ – Brother Gearmotors, a division of Brother International Corporation that offers a wide range of ultra-reliable, sub-fractional AC gearmotors and reducers for the food & beverage, packaging and material handling industries, has hired three new regional sales managers: Brad Brania, William (Bill) Fulton, and Cory Love.
The sales managers are responsible for the growth and sales performance of their respective regions, while building a portfolio of direct OEM clients and distribution sales channels. Their focus is on prospecting and capturing market share, developing and implementing sales strategies that are aligned with corporate objectives, and working closely with product management and marketing to successfully launch strategic campaigns.
Brad Brania’s territory covers the state of Illinois. Prior to joining Brother Gearmotors, Brad held sales managerial responsibilities at Revcor and Johnson Electric. Brad holds a B.S. in Business Administration from Marquette University and resides in Algonquin, Illinois with his wife and two children.
Bill Fulton’s purview includes Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. Bill previously held sales managerial responsibilities at ABB and Baldor, and holds an M.S. in Operations Management from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and a B.S. in Engineering from Bradley University. Bill resides in Mount Pleasant, WI, with his wife and two children.
Cory Love’s Southeastern territory includes Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida. He held previous regional sales manager positions at Delta Products and Wittenstein (Alpha Gear), and was a Sales Engineer at AMETEK (Haydon Kerk). He earned an Electrical Engineering degree at Clemson University.
Brother Gearmotors is one of the world’s largest fine-pitch gear manufacturers and meets industry demand for smaller, lighter, reliable and energy-efficient power transmission components. The company recently opened a U.S. assembly facility in Bartlett, TN, which houses onsite assembly of over 27,000 unique SKUs and serves as a maintenance and repair hub. The site allows Brother Gearmotors to meet customers’ needs in approximately 3- to 5-day delivery of a wide array of products, as well as provide emergency overnight delivery when necessary.
Key attributes of gearmotors from Brother include:
- Light, reliable and compact in size
- High torque at low speed
- Sealed for life for maximum efficiency and reduced labor
- Standard high-grade grease for lifetime lubrication and reduced maintenance/downtime
- High-quality, durable, e-coat paint to withstand the toughest environments
- More efficient than worm gearboxes as a result of hardened hypoid gearing
“We look forward to increasing our customer base and service capabilities in the power sourcing sector by bringing these three seasoned professionals on board. We are confident they will provide the active management, support and leadership needed to drive sales, and welcome them to the Brother Gearmotors family.” Matthew Roberson, Senior Director of Brother Gearmotors.
