Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment has named Scott Christopher to the position of regional sales manager, effective immediately. Christopher will manage sales in the southeast region of the United States, covering North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Florida.

In his new role, Christopher will be responsible for working with manufacturer representative groups to maintain existing accounts and assist in cultivating new customers.

“I am excited to see how much red equipment we can eventually see in this market, in addition to developing solid relationships and expanding the amount of dealers selling our equipment,” Christopher said. “CP has a ton of brand recognition with a great product line. There are plenty of opportunities to grow the CP business and I look forward to the challenge.”
