Parsons Named President At Palmer Johnson Power Systems

Posted on August 7, 2007

Palmer Johnson Power Systems has named Craig Parsons as president of the company. That position had been vacant since the partial retirement of Gary Sorg, in 2004. Parsons had served as general manager during the interim period.

Parsons’ primary focus since joining Palmer Johnson has been the growth of the company’s service business. He has promoted the development of Palmer Johnson’s outside sales force, refocused the company’s marketing activities and has worked to add service capabilities throughout the Palmer Johnson service network, including the construction of the company’s 65,000 sq. ft. remanufacturing center in Sun Prairie, Wis.

Palmer Johnson Power Systems also announced the promotion of Jeff Magusin to vice president of sales. Magusin, based in the company’s Phoenix service center, previously was regional manager then national sales manager. Magusin has been with the company since 2002 when Palmer Johnson purchased California’s n.a. D’Arcy Co.

Magusin’s responsibilities will expand to include managing newly hired outside sales personnel in Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City and Phoenix; adding new outside sales representatives in Denver and Northern California; targeting national transmission and axle remanufacturing opportunities; launching new products including AxleTech, Carraro, and ZF; and increasing service-related business.
