ELKHART, Ind. — Lippert Components (LCI) announces two promotions within the company’s Aftermarket Division. Julie Bethel-Welker has been promoted to the role of distribution national sales manager. Bethel-Welker will be the point of contact for all warehouse distribution on LCI products. Bethel-Welker will work hand and hand with Stephan Lussier, LCI’s aftermarket managing director, to train and market all of the LCI aftermarket components through distribution.
Mark Boessler, LCI’s vice president of aftermarket sales, stated, “Julie is a true professional that has effectively driven our sales through distribution and has garnered great respect within the WD community. With Julie and Stephan leading the charge, we are in a great position to grow our team within.”
Bethel-Welker has been with LCI for almost three years in the Aftermarket Division and was the distribution manager prior to the promotion.
“I’m excited to work alongside Mark Boessler and Stephan Lussier to promote growth and create solid partnerships with our wholesale distributors,” said Bethel-Welker.
Matt Clauss has been promoted to the role of national sales manager, Aftermarket Outside sales. Clauss will be in charge of the eight total reginal sales managers in North America that are training and selling to dealers every day. With the growth we have had in the aftermarket, Clauss is looking for additional experienced RSM’s to add to his team today. Clauss will be responsible for driving sales to warehouse distribution through dealerships and dealers sales on all the LCI Aftermarket products.
Boessler stated, “Matt has been with LCI for over three years and has built a solid foundation in dealing with dealerships across the country. Matt is experienced in all LCI products and will help grow the level of service to dealers though the RSM’s.”
Clauss, who formerly worked as distribution sales manager within LCI’s Aftermarket Division, will now manage the aftermarket outside sales team as a part of his new role, working to improve and enhance LCI’s product distribution within relevant marketplaces.
“I’m thankful and blessed to have the opportunity to work with such an amazing team. Together, we are going to take the Aftermarket Division to new heights,” commented Clauss.
