WESTAMPTON, N.J. (Jan. 26, 2016) - Weego, innovator of portable jump starters and rechargeable battery packs, announced the hiring of Jon Kluiter as the company's new Channel Sales Manager. In this role, Jon is responsible for business development and sales management of the marine, automotive, powersports, outdoor, e-commerce and industrial channels plus all international business. Jon's hire reflects the growth of Weego and the company's confidence in the future of the portable power category. Jon is Weego's third major addition to the team in the last few months, following Berdj Mazmanian (product development) and Frank Rodriquez (product engineering).
Jon has over 15 years of progressive sales experience with the majority of his career in the powersports industry. He spent 10 years with Fulmer Helmets, the largest, self-distributed helmet brand in the USA. Jon was responsible for managing the western region which became the fastest growing region within the company. Never one to sit still - and channeling his inner lead guitar, hair-metal band passion - Jon took a six-year detour founding a musical instrument business, growing it into a multi-million dollar venture. He later sold his company and got back into powersports, rising through the ranks to most recently become the managing director of H&H Sports Protection.
"We are seeing greater demand in our products, so increasing the Weego team to be able to accommodate and take on more opportunities is the right thing to do. I am very happy to bring Jon on board," said Gerry Toscani, CEO of Weego. "Jon's experience and competitive, need-to-win nature will be a huge asset in helping us grow our brand into new as well as existing channels. Based on 2015 successes and the groundwork that's already been laid for 2016, I'm confident that expanding our Weego sales and marketing team gives us the bandwidth to take on even more."
