In an effort to improve sales and service in its Truck Aftermarket Div., Eaton Corp. reorganized that unit last month. As part of the reorganization, three new positions were created. Josette Russell, who will lead strategic development, product management, marketing and growth development activities, was named manager, marketing and business development. Chris Shemas was appointed sales manager, NAFTA; she will lead aftermarket sales growth efforts both at OEM accounts and with distributors. Steve Melvin is the new manager of service product development. All three report to Jeff Romig, general manager of the Truck Aftermarket Div.
Other changes at Eaton include naming Tim Morsecheck to the newly created position of vp-chief technology officer for the Truck business unit. Morsecheck, formerly vp and general manager of Trucking Electronic Systems Div., will continue to oversee the Eaton VORAD collision warning system business unit, as well as the electronic braking systems business and hybrid-electric powertrain development program.
In a related move, Eaton is blending its Automated Transmissions business unit back into the Heavy Duty and Light and Medium Duty Transmissions divisions, from the Truck Electronics Systems division.
