“I am very excited to be able to add Eric and Jay, two knowledgeable and experienced sales reps to our AEF team,” Bunnell said. “Their expertise is evident, they know a lot of the equipment dealers in the areas where we do business, plus they are great team players that are excited to help us continue our growth and expansion. They will spend the majority of their time developing business with dealerships throughout the Midwest and Southeast.”
AEF also is pleased to announce the following staff additions related to the expansion of its vendor operations: Carrie Guire and Stacey Nichols, sales support specialists, and Mike Davis, asset manager.
