Radial Engineering Ltd. has announced that Steve McKay will be transitioning from Sales Manager to fill a newly-created position as Export Sales Manager while Roc Bubel has joined the Radial team as its new Sales Manager.
“Steve has been managing our domestic sales team for several years while also investing what time he had available on developing our export distribution channels,” says Radial President Peter Janis. “With the global economy shifting to emerging markets like China, India, Turkey, south-east Asia, the Middle East, and Brazil, we feel that the time has come to invest more energy into these important markets. As Steve has already been working with our international distributors, the move here is natural.”
To fill McKay’s shoes, Radial has appointed Bubel, who previously held the position of National Sales Manager for Fender Musical Instruments Corp. in Canada, as Sales Manager. “I have known Roc for nearly 30 years,” comments Janis. “When Roc decided to get back into the industry it was an opportunity that we could not pass up. During his 22 years with Fender, Roc gained a tremendous reputation as being a top-notch manager and was very well respected by his peers. We are very excited about these changes and look forward to a very exciting year.”
