FENN Sales Manager Mike Geiger is pleased to announce the addition of Account Manager John Cravaack to the sales team. John brings over 30 years of valuable metals experience to FENN, and will be responsible for the midsection of the US, spanning from the upper Midwest down to Texas.
Prior to his new role, John served as Regional Sales Manager for Hynes Industries, where he represented products from all the Hynes company divisions, including Hynes Steel, Hynes Formed Products, and Rolled Wire Products. In his role as regional manager, John maintained a 30 million dollar territory, and played an instrumental role in breaking into new key industries. Prior to his tenure at Hynes Industries, John worked in sales at Central Steel & Wire Co., where he managed a large sales territory. In addition to his sales experience, John has participated in industry associations, such as the Metals Service Center Institute (MSCI), where he served as board member from 2000-2006, and was elected president for the 2006-2008 term. FENN looks forward to John utilizing his experience in developing solutions for a broad range of businesses; from small manufacturing companies to large corporations. John has a BA in Business Administration from Hanover College.
John will be joining FENN Account Manager, Kevin Campion. Kevin joined the FENN team in 2017 and brought over 36 years of manufacturing industry sales experience to the company, with 34 of those years being in the metals industry. In his position, Kevin brings a technical perspective to a commercial role, while covering the east coast and western regions of the United States. Kevin’s territory expands to international territories where FENN does not already have a designated representative. Additionally, Kevin manages the TSP product line throughout the U.S.
Prior to his position as FENN’s Account Manager, Kevin most recently held positions at Ulbrich Stainless Steel & Special Metals as a Product Manager, Bekaert Corporation as the Market Manager of North America for Swaging Wire & Stainless Steel, and Carpenter Technology as a Product Manager for Wire & Rod Group. During this time Kevin exceeded market growth rate for coil products in both tons and stable profit for medical and energy markets for 3 consecutive fiscal years. In addition, Kevin has established a track record of exceptional sales results, gained national and international account management experience, and developed excellent communication and complex negotiating skills. FENN is pleased to welcome both John and Kevin as it continues to position itself for growth.
Of these two recent Account Manager hires, Mike Geiger commented, “We are very excited to be rounding out our sales team and, with the addition of two seasoned professionals, we are providing our customers with experienced problem solvers that understand the values of partnerships and what it takes to provide quality solutions.
