Exel Composites has appointed John Mertic as its new area sales manager for North America.
Mertic, who will be based in Erlanger, Kentucky, will cover business across the USA, Canada, and the Caribbean, the company said.
He joins Exel from M Holland Co where he was a sales representative in resin distribution and has also held managerial positions at automotive door lock manufacturer, GECOM Corporation.
‘Beyond the industries with which Exel is well established, such as telecoms, there are numerous potential growth sectors in North America,’ said Mertic. ‘For instance, my experiences within the automotive and plastics sectors have given me the drive to explore how thermoplastics could be used to make transportation more sustainable.’
‘The USA and North America are of great strategic importance to Exel, and John’s experience in sales and customer care across two key industries makes him an asset to the global team,’ added Olli Teva, SVP marketing and sales at Exel Composites.
