Talbert Manufacturing, a manufacturer of specialized heavy-haul trailers and transportation equipment, has hired Jennifer Koepke as its sales manager — west region. Koepke works directly with Talbert dealers in the western United States and Canada to help them market, specify and sell Talbert trailers to meet customers' application needs.
“I believe in forging relationships built on honesty and partnerships, and I'm looking forward to bringing my hands-on approach to working with customers to solve problems and reach common goals,” Koepke said. “Talbert is an exceptional company and the leader in specialized trailer manufacturing. I'm proud to be part of the team.”
Koepke brings many years of equipment and trailer experience to her new role, including positions in business leadership, management, sales, marketing and economic development. Most recently, she was the general manager at Sidump'r Trailer in Plainview, Neb., where she was responsible for rebranding and restructuring the company.
“Jennifer has an exceptional understanding of the transportation industry and trailers in particular,” said Greg Smith, Talbert vice president of sales and marketing. “The fact that she has been involved in shaping companies that sell trailers and leading their day-to-day operations gives her a depth of experience that will be extremely valuable not only to our dealers and their customers but to Talbert, as well.”
