Omnitek Engineering Corporation has appointed industry veteran Gordon Lilley as sales manager, a newly created position.
“The appointment of a sales manager is an important strategic addition to our organization and addresses the significant pent-up demand for diesel-to-natural-gas truck engine conversions, particularly in the domestic market,” says Werner Funk, president and CEO at Omnitek. “Demand has been greatly enhanced by recent EPA approval of our technology for the widely operated line of heavy-duty Navistar DT466E and DT530E engines, as well as plans to obtain EPA approval for additional diesel engines for conversion and other state-related certifications this year.”
He adds, “Gordon’s extensive industry background and sales experience is intended to support the company’s growth in both domestic and foreign markets, and we look forward to his contributions.”
Lilley, who will report directly to Funk, most recently served as sales manager for Quantum Technologies.
