Stellar Promotes Janssen and Ytzen to Inside Sales
Wednesday - April 6, 2016
Eric Janssen
     Eric Janssen began his inside sales duties just after the start of the New Year.  He worked the previous 4 years as a Sales Representative for the American Eagle Accessories Group, a division of Stellar Industries.  While there, he was responsible for working with distributors and end-users needing truck-mounted drawer systems and air compressor systems.  In Janssen’s new role at Stellar Industries, his main duty includes managing all chassis for stock orders, special requests, and customer supplied units.  He will also work with the tire service fleet and national accounts, and assist the Stellar Regional Sales Managers with incoming orders.
     “I have gotten familiar with the drawer systems and air compressors through my experience at American Eagle,” Says Janssen, “And now I’m looking forward to working with our distribution and with customers on putting together the entire service truck to meet their work truck needs.” 
     Janssen has a BA from Waldorf College and a MBA in Sports Management from Columbia Southern University.  He lives in Belmond with his wife and two daughters.

Ryan Ytzen
     Ryan Ytzen recently moved into the Inside Sales position from the customer service department where he was a Technical Service Representative for the past 3 years.  In that role, he worked with customers to receive, process and enter customer orders and return goods requests, and would troubleshoot product issues over the phone and occasionally on-site.  
     Ytzen’s new position will allow him to interact with the Regional Sales Managers and the Stellar distribution network in order to quote and sell the various Stellar products.  He will focus on entering orders in an accurate and timely fashion while meeting customer needs and expectations, as well as following up with production dates, keeping the customer informed, and arranging shipping or pickup details. 
   “I enjoy building relationships and finding solutions with our distributors and customers,” says Ytzen, “And I like to learn something new everyday while facing their challenges head-on.”  He adds, “I’m on a quest to unlock my true potential, and I feel proud to contribute to the success of Stellar Industries in the tough marketplace.”
   Ytzen has an AAS degree in Automotive Technology from North Iowa Area Community College.  He lives in Garner with his wife and three kids.  Ytzen likes living and being a part of his community, and is proud to be a volunteer Fire Fighter.  He enjoys golfing, music, and is an avid Minnesota Vikings fan.
