Kauffman becomes VP of Airxcel RV OEM sales

WICHITA, Kansas — Airxcel today announced the promotion of Trent Kauffman to the position of vice president of RV OEM sales.  Effective June 1, Kauffman will direct the sales of Coleman-Mach RV air conditioners, MaxxAir RV ventilation solutions and Suburban RV heating, water heating and cooking appliances to our OEM customers.

He assumes responsibility for RV OEM sales from Pierre Briglio who has announced his intention to retire effective Dec. 31.

“Pierre joined the company as a regional sales manager in 1988, and worked his way into vice president of sales and marketing for the RV group of Airxcel,” said Greg Guinn, president of Airxcel’s RV Products Division. “Under Pierre’s direction, our sales efforts have been successful in growing the Coleman-Mach, Suburban, and Maxxair brands to the position of market leaders.  Pierre’s retirement provides the opportunity to divide his duties into three positions with focused responsibilities; RV OEM sales, marketing and aftermarket sales, and international sales. He will be missed, but we wish Pierre and his family well in his retirement.”

Kauffmann joined Airxcel in 2001 as an RV OEM sales representative.  He has also managed sales and marketing for Suburban’s Applied Products line, and worked most recently as regional sales manager in the Elkhart market.

“Trent’s OEM sales experience, dedication to serving the customer, and product knowledge make him the perfect candidate to lead the OEM sales organization,” said Art Klee, president of Airxcel’s Suburban Division.  “We congratulate him on his promotion.”
