Pritchard, Tucker Rocky Part Ways


Tucker Rocky Distributing and Tim Pritchard have parted ways. Pritchard's position as Tucker Rocky VP of Sales will be filled by Joe Gavin, who has been serving as a regional sales manager for the distributor.

In a related move, TR has promoted Debbie Bell to VP of customer service and inside sales. Bell began her career in customer service in the Tucker Rocky Kansas City operation.

Additionally, the Answer, MSR and ProTaper groups in the company's Corona, Calif., office will now report to Sean Phillips, senior segment director.

Tucker Rocky, in a prepared statement, says the organizational moves are the result of a re-evaluation of its corporate structure, processes and strategies.
