Underground Tools, Lino Lakes, Minn., last week named Mark Gehrke as territory sales manager. Gehrke joins Underground Tools with more than 15 years of sales and product management experience in the underground construction equipment industry.
“We are at a point right now where, in order to maintain and improve the quality of our service, we needed to bring Mark on board and expand our sales staff,” said UTI partner, Mike Burns. “Mark is highly qualified and gives us the opportunity to raise the level of service to our existing customers and reach out to new ones as well.”
Gehrke began his career with his family-owned trencher dealership in Phoenix, and then as a founding member of equipment manufacturer American Chain, and most recently as ground engaging manager for Astec Underground.
Underground Tools manufactures a wide range of wear parts for the underground construction industry, specializing in trencher and horizontal directional drilling ground engaging parts.
