ATLANTA, GA — Takeuchi-US names Joseph Funk as its new Regional Business Manager (RBM) for the Mid-Atlantic region. Funk will be responsible for all sales development and activity in that multi-state region, including dealer development, dealer recruitment, inventory control,  forecasting, program promotion, and communication.

“Joseph has a lot of enthusiasm and a real knack for building customer relationships,” said John Vranches, National Sales Manager for Takeuchi-US. “He has a combination of sales, management, and customer service experience that make him a great fit for the position and our team. We’re pleased to have him join the Takeuchi family.” 

Based in Gainesville, Georgia, Funk comes to Takeuchi from his former role as a Sales Manager for Fieldale Farms, a large food distributor. Prior to his tenure there, Funk worked in a number of customer service and inside sales roles including Neff Rental, a construction equipment rental company.

“Takeuchi is a growing company, and I’m really looking forward to helping them achieve and exceed their sales goals in the Mid-Atlantic region,” Funk said. “Over the past few years, I’ve sharpened my heavy equipment knowledge, and I look forward to working with Takeuchi dealers and introducing their customers to the many benefits that they can enjoy when they purchase Takeuchi machines.”
