Henke Manufacturing, a division of the Alamo Group, has named Matt Hood vice president of sales and marketing.

Leavenworth, KS-based Henke is a provider of snow and ice removal systems.

“I’m very excited to be back,” said Hood. “I started with Henke as their first regional sales manager in 1993, eventually working my way into an ownership position in 2001, so while it’s good to have direct and relevant experience in the snow & ice removal industry, it’s even better to have that experience with Henke.”

Hood left Henke in 2009 for an equity position with a manufacturing company as its president and CEO.

“Hood’s experience in creating successful sales teams and growing distribution channels is exactly what we need,” said Henke President Doug Metcalf. “We are thrilled to have Matt back with our team and look forward to the energy and leadership he brings to the table.”
