TIPP CITY, OH - The Distribution Services Group of A.O. Smith Electrical Products Co. has established a regional management network to strengthen its ability to support distributors and their customers across the United States. In conjunction, A.O. Smith has also introduced its team of seven new regional managers who will be in charge of respective territories.

According to A.O. Smith, the new regional management network is intended to enhance service customers by expanding support at the regional level. With the network, a larger team will concentrate on a smaller territory and fewer customers.

The regional managers bring more than three decades of experience in sales management for the electric motor industry. Rick Streacker will be in charge of the Midwest region, Joe Blackburn will head the northwest region, John Puorro will be in charge of the northeast region, Ed McCollum has been appointed to the southeast states, Steve Warner will oversee the south central states, Greg Palaski will be in charge of the mid-Atlantic states, and Bill DeCorrevont has been appointed to the western region.
