Webb Wheel Severe Duty has announced the appointments of Nate Nielsen as director of sales and Jeremy Zills to manager of engineering.
These latest organizational changes at Webb Severe Duty are part of the company's plan to focus on premium value-add brake drum solutions for severe-duty applications such as transit bus, motor coach, and refuse trucks.
Nielsen transferred to Webb Severe Duty from the company’s Aftermarket Business Unit where he most recently held the position of OES strategic account manager.
He joined Webb Wheel in 2010, following a decade of advancements in the commercial vehicle industry at Paccar, Peterbilt and Federal Mogul.
In his new role he will primarily concentrate on delivering premium solutions focused on lifecycle costs to the U.S. and Canadian refuse industry.
Zills also transferred to Webb Severe Duty from another Webb Wheel business.
Zills is an engineering graduate of Auburn University who joined the company in 2002 as design engineer at their OEM facility in Tell City, Ind., and progressed to senior project engineer II.
His new position with Webb Severe Duty will focus on the design and engineering of new products to meet the needs of the transit bus, motor coach and refuse truck market segments.
Both Nielsen and Zills report directly to Ken Kelley, president of Webb Wheel Severe Duty.
