In response to the company’s continued growth, Kinedyne Canada has created the position of national account manager to provide additional support at the national level. Robert Spooner, who has worked as Kinedyne’s Eastern Canada sales representative for more than 10 years, has been named to the new position.
“As a respected member of the sales team with a flare for marketing, Robert was a natural choice for this promotion,” says Larry Harrison, general manager of Kinedyne Canada. “Kinedyne Canada is proud of our excellent internal mentoring program, which is structured to constantly improve our employees’ knowledge and capabilities. For this reason, when we have the opportunity to promote internally, we know we are hiring the best for the job.”
Spooner will be responsible for directing and coordinating the activities of all national accounts. He will also assist the cargo sales reps in national account head office communications, work to increase Kinedyne’s brand and sales, and work with the general manager to develop new business. He will also be the lead contact with major national associations like CTEA, Vipar, HDDC and NTDA.
Canadian couple Tracey Alf and Sean Dillon have been awarded August’s Trucker Buddy Driver of the Month honour. The couple are Trucker Buddies to Amy Donohue’s second-grade class in Clifton Park, N.Y. In addition to sending postcards, Alf and Dillon also e-mail their class at Arongen Elementary School at least two times a week. To spice things up for the students, they also send postcards and e-mails from their dog, Buddy.
Alf and Dillon, of Arnprior, Ont., are company drivers for the Yanke Group of Companies in Saskatoon, Sask. After two years with the program and teacher Donohue, they got to visit with their class for the first time this past June.
“We want to thank our company, Yanke, for arranging the visit,” Dillon related. “It was a logistical feat to get us there, but they made it happen.”
