Dennis has joined the company as regional sales manager for Northern California. In his new position, Dennis is responsible for increasing new and used equipment sales in his territory, with six account managers reporting to him.
“We welcome Rick to Road,” said Dan Roush, president of Road Machinery. “He brings many years of experience and a tremendous amount of technical and sales knowledge to the company. We expect him to have a major impact in increasing our market share.”
Dennis has 35 years of experience in the heavy equipment industry. He has extensive knowledge of the industry, due to the wide range of departments he has worked with, including parts, accounting, inside and outside sales, and both sales and operations management.

Schwenk began his career in construction equipment as an outside salesman for a dealership in Montana and was promoted to regional sales manager there, where he built a very successful sales team, before moving to Road Machinery. He will be responsible for building the company’s sales in the Southern California market.
