GOMACO’s domestic and international sales force has recently undergone changes. Longtime Western District Sales Manager Jim Hayward has announced his retirement after over 40 years with our company.
Hayward first started at GOMACO working in the Hydraulics Department and then quickly moved into Service. From Service he transferred into Sales and became a District Sales Manager.
He will be replaced by Logan Mohr in the western United States. Mohr’s new territory includes Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Utah, Montana, Nevada, Arizona, western Wyoming, Alaska, and Hawaii. He will be responsible for the sales and support of GOMACO’s full line of concrete construction products and managing the distributor network within his territory.
Mohr started at GOMACO in the 3D Machine Controls Department as a field service technician. He has traveled extensively in North America setting up 3D guidance systems on all models of GOMACO equipment and has worked directly with GOMACO customers.
“Jim has always worked hard for our GOMACO customers ensuring their needs were met, their questions answered, and was always willing to climb aboard the equipment and help troubleshoot. We wish him only the best in retirement,“ Kent Godbersen, GOMACO’s Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing, said. “Logan brings a unique blend of qualifications to the position with his engineering and 3D background. We’re sure he’ll build on Jim’s success in the western United States.”
Travis Brockman, GOMACO’s District Manager for the northeast United States and eastern Canada, will now be responsible for the entire country of Canada. Brockman’s territory as a GOMACO District Manager previously included the provinces of Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, and Ontario. He will now be responsible for the northeast United States and western Canada as well as the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia.
Brockman has been with GOMACO since 2005 when he joined the company as a field service technician. He was promoted to Sales in 2013 when he took over the northeastern United States and eastern Canada territory as a District Manager. He is responsible for the sales and support of GOMACO’s full line of concrete construction products, as well as managing the territory’s distributor network.
“Travis has been responsible for sales success and distributor development in the northeastern United States and his provinces in eastern Canada,” Godbersen said. “His service background along with his sales and support skills have earned him an impressive reputation among our GOMACO customers, and we have no doubt his skills and product knowledge will serve our customers in western Canada as well.”
