Adds Two More Key Industry Veterans To Manage Growing Dealership Demand - Growing Roster of Talented Powersports Industry Salespeople as Volcon Starts 2022 off In High Gear
AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Volcon Inc. (NASDAQ: VLCN), the first all-electric, off-road powersports company, today announced that it has signed its 36th dealer and retained two industry veterans to manage the growing roster of dealerships across the United States. Steven Christian and Johnny Hayes, longtime motorsports industry veterans, join Volcon, effective immediately, to manage the Southern and Northwest territories, respectively.
Steven, having spent a lifetime in powersports and sales will be responsible for the Northwest territory of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado. Steven's 20-year sales career started with BRP (Can-Am) where he managed a large dealership network, expanding his territory by exceeding wholesale and retail sales goals. Since his days at BRP he has helped bring emerging brands to market like CFMoto and Mahindra, bringing the ROXOR brand to life across the Northwest.
"With close to 350 dealership applications now in the queue we are thrilled about our potential to grow the Volcon brand in a big way in 2022," said Melissa Coffey, Director of International Sales and Business Development. "Having people like Steven and Johnny join the team really increases our ability to vet and select the best dealership partners in the US and will build upon our momentum heading into key buying seasons."
Johnny joins the Volcon team with experience at multiple well-established OEMs, but also key experience in the electric mobility sector. Johnny started his career at Yamaha as a District Sales Manager in 2007. Since then, he's gone on to work for industry leaders Suzuki, CF Moto and Mahindra, bringing the ROXOR brand to life in the southern states. Most recently, Johnny led the sales efforts for Navistar – a leading electric class 6-8 heavy duty trucks manufacturer – in 20 states and three provinces in Canada, including managing Navistar's biggest client, Rush Truck Centers in 62 locations in the US and 14 in Canada.
