Compact equipment maker Takeuchi-US has appointed Bethany Klitzke national parts manager, while Scott Utzman has taken on the newly created role of customer support manager.
As national parts manager, Klitzke will oversee all of the manufacturer’s parts and attachment inventory. In addition to inventory accuracy and availability, Klitzke will be responsible for parts sales growth.
Having expanded its parts department, Takeuchi created the new role of customer support manager, promoting Utzman to the position.
The company said Utzman will work closely with Takeuchi dealers to further strengthen those relationships and also will gather information on how the company can improve practices and better support dealers’ businesses.
“Bethany and Scott very much deserve these promotions and they will make us even stronger in our parts department,” said Mike Ross, director of operations at Takeuchi-US. “Bethany has shown great foresight and vision for improving the systems and processes in the department during her short time with us. Scott moves into a brand new position that will play a huge role for us. We have no doubt that Scott will do a great job in supporting our dealers.”
With offices and manufacturing operations northeast of Atlanta, Takeuchi-US makes a variety of compact equipment, including track loaders, excavators, wheel loaders and skid steer loaders.
