Mid-State Distributing has promoted Tom Kolar into the new position of vice president of sales and marketing for the 12-Volt division.
“Since the acquisition of AM Distributors, based in Chicago and the growing focus we have placed on mobile audio we really needed a person to help oversee and coordinate our mobile sales efforts across all of our territory,” said Jeff Hedden, president of Mid-State Distributing.
Kolar has more than 30 years of industry experience. He began working at RTI Distribution in Omaha, Nebraska in 1992, becoming national sales manager in 2000. He joined the Mid-State Distribution team when it purchased RTI Distribution in 2006.
“I am very excited with the addition of the AM team to the Mid-State family to create a synergy in our 12-Volt division like we have never seen before,” Kolar said. “The growth potential as we become one company is staggering; we look forward to the next several years of major growth potential in all of our markets.”
