Industrial Magnetics, Inc. (IMI) has hired Aaron Evans as regional manager for the company’s Western U.S. territory, which includes the Arizona, Utah, Central and Southern California, and Southern Nevada.
Evans has an extensive background in industrial distribution, including 15 years as an account manager with Kaman Distribution. He has also held management positions at various hydraulic and power transmission distributors and completed a number of factory training and certifications with companies such as, Baldor Electric Motor, Timken Bearings and Drives Chain, and NIBA Belting Association.
“Until Aaron came on board, we had mostly managed the Western USA from our headquarters in Michigan,” said Dennis O’Leary, IMI’s chief business development officer. “We’re excited that our customers and channels partners there can now enjoy the benefit of face-to-face interaction with an IMI regional manager. We believe it’s what sets us apart from many other manufacturers in our space: an in-field regional manager working in concert with everyone in the chain to effectively deliver unique solutions.”
A graduate of Bremerton College and a US Navy veteran who traveled the world, Aaron currently resides in California with his wife and children where he spends his free time playing post-competitive Rugby and working with wood.
