Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. today announced the hiring of three new aftermarket sales reps to cover the states of Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas. Instead of using an independent rep firm, the company has decided to service the area with Alpine-direct sales reps. Sales reps Andy Allen, Jimmy Chauffe, and Mark Sartain will represent the Alpine lineup in these states.
“Texas and the surrounding states are very important for Alpine, and this move allows us to dedicate four full-time Alpine staff to the territory,” said Mike Anderson, Vice President and General Manager, Brand Business Unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. “The hiring of Andy Allen, Jimmy Chauffe, and Mark Sartain, along with Brand Specialist Dan Greenwood’s support, lets us deliver Alpine-focused service to our dealers in this area.”
