AirSept has announced the addition of Charles “Chuck” Abbott as the company’s new vice president of sales & marketing.
Hired March 1 by Aaron Becker, AirSept’s president, Abbott’s expertise is in transforming businesses for profitable growth in the tool, equipment and chemical categories via multiple channels to the automotive and HVAC/R service markets.
Abbott previously served as Vice President, Global Automotive Sales for CPS Products, Inc. There, Abbott managed strategic accounts including Snap-on and Lockheed Martin and was the primary architect of a sales team that significantly grew sales with a focus on new, innovative products, leveraging private label programs, improving customer retention, and expanding distribution here and abroad.
“Rarely do you find a candidate whose professional background and thought processes are so closely aligned to your company’s products and marketing needs,” Becker said. “Chuck has a remarkable history of building brands for our specialized industry in addition to having long-standing excellent relationships with product managers with major automotive retailers, the mobility market, suppliers and manufacturer representatives. AirSept is poised for major growth with our inventory of over 20 award-winning professional service tools that saves time and money, which is especially relevant now with vehicles staying in service longer. I feel confident that Chuck, with his insight to our industry, his penchant for successful strategic planning, and new business development is the right person to capitalize on our strengths and develop a plan to catapult sales.”
Currently, Abbott serves on the board of directors for the Automotive Maintenance & Repair Association and previously served on the board of directors for the Equipment Tool Institute. Abbott, a graduate of Lesley University, will have a hybrid work schedule working primarily from his home in Indianapolis.
