Wiha is proud to announce the expansion of our ‘Feet on the Street’ initiative.
This program is designed to drive business at the branch, dealer and store level. The team now consists of 5 dedicated associates focused on promoting the Wiha brand with partner dealers across the USA and Canada.
Each associate is responsible for brand development, product education, promotional support, and merchandising initiatives within their respective markets.
“The expansion of our field team is critical in the next stage in our development. The ‘Feet on the Street’ program will build broader awareness of our products and brand with our customers and end-users. I am confident that the success of the program will lead to future expansion of the team” said Patrick Di Perno, Managing Director of the Americas.
