RACINE, Wis. - Case IH has reorganized its team to enhance its ability to serve the needs of dealers and customers throughout North America. As part of the reorganization, Case IH will increase the number of regional sales directors from five to nine.



"Each regional director will have responsibility for a smaller geographic area. That means they can more effectively manage their Case IH sales team and establish close professional relationships with dealer principals," says Jim Walker, vice president, Case IH North America. "We are confident that we have the right people in the right positions to grow sales and better serve our customers."



The nine new regional directors include new hires as well as promotions and reassignments from within the Case IH organization. Each has responsibilities aligned with key markets.
