Illinois Material Handling, a division of Wisconsin Lift Truck Corp., announced that Gene Haake has been promoted to assistant sales manager. Gene will be responsible for both capital equipment and aftermarket sales in a three territory area of the dealership. Haake has been with Illinois Material Handling for two years, most recently as capital equipment sales representative.
Tony Kelly, a 16-year veteran of the company, moves from the Rockford territory where he was capital equipment sales representative to the same position in a new territory covering the counties of McHenry, northern Du Page and part of Cook County. His experience in the Rockford territory, where he has also held the position of customer service representative; his enthusiasm; and his ability to be a hands-on player will make him a great asset to customers.
Warren Carlson, who has been with Illinois Material Handling for nearly a year, has been promoted from customer service representative to capital equipment sales representative, in the northern portion of the Rockford territory. He replaces Tony Kelly. Warren has worked hard in his current position and with his knowledge and experience he will also be an immediate asset to our customers.
