Bangor-based Automatic Distributors has upshifted a couple of gears as industry veterans James Priestnal and Russ Harper have joined the team. Dealers may know Priestnal from his time as the GM for Cycra Plastics as well as international sales with MTA. He will now be responsible for helping develop specialty accounts within the state of Ohio as Automatic launches its version of manifest destiny and westward expansion.

“We are also pleased to welcome Russ Harper to the Automatic sales team,” says director of sales & marketing Paul Davis. After attending MMI and working the parts counter at a local dealership, Harper found himself taking an inside sales role with Sullivan’s before ultimately moving to Parts Unlimited in 1999. After an 18-year stint handling sales within Alabama, Harper is now handling his old territory, as well as calling on dealers in Mississippi for Automatic. Click to connect with Russ:
