PurePower Technologies has named Noel Ranka as its new chief sales and marketing officer.
Reporting to President and CEO Jerry Sweetland, Ranka will be responsible for leading all sales, marketing and business development activities to expand PurePower’s growing customer base.
Ranka joins PurePower after a long career at JAC Products Inc., where he held senior leadership positions in sales, marketing, advanced product development and business development since 2004. Most recently, he served as JAC’s chief marketing and sales officer, where he created and led a global sales team and developed and implemented corporate strategies for global growth. He also led a team of advanced engineers working on future products to market and sell, the company says.
“Noel’s decades of experience, not just in sales and marketing, but also product engineering, will provide us with a diverse background and understanding of the OEM and aftermarket commercial vehicle markets, which will help us fuel our continued growth,” Sweetland says.
“This is an exciting time for PurePower. I look forward to the challenges of serving our customers and growing our business. There is a momentum here and I am pleased to join the team and start contributing,” Ranka says.
