Crawford worked for a major manufacturer of construction equipment for the past four years. He will work in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and Montana, with the primary responsibility of supporting existing Kioti dealers and helping develop new dealers in open territories.
Ross brings more than 26 years experience as a territory manager. He will represent Kioti in South Central Texas.
