TURNERS FALLS, MA Mayhew Steel Products (Mayhew Tools) announces Wayne Smith as new Western Regional Sales Manager. Smith, who has more than 15 years of account management and business development expertise and a proven track record of success, will be accountable for increasing Mayhew Tools’ sales in the Western Region of the U.S. — leading a sales team comprised of independent territory representatives. This newly established position will be key to Mayhew Tools’ extending their reach and capitalizing on more sales opportunities west of the Mississippi River.

In addition to driving sales and market share, Smith will be focused on maintaining relationships with distributors and manufacturers’ rep agencies throughout his territory. He will also work closely with his sales team to identify and capitalize on new sales targets and opportunities, more specifically increasing sales of new products with existing and new customers.  Reporting to Mayhew Tools’ Vice President Sales and Marketing, Smith will also manage all programs and promotions in his territory and contribute towards the company’s planning and forecasting efforts moving forward.

"We are very excited to have Wayne join our team," said Eric Mills, Mayhew Tools Vice President Sales and Marketing. "His position not only fills a physical void from a territory perspective but will be key to expanding and growing our sales in existing and new markets."

Smith added, "Mayhew Tools has a solid reputation as a distinguished manufacturer and I am eager to jump in and hit the ground running in this newly created position."
