Auringer will oversee all US regional markets with a team of talented Regional Sales Managers. Auringer, a lifetime powersports enthusiast, has extensive experience in bringing new and revived brands to market. In the past 10 years he has worked to establish and turn around dealership networks for brands like Sea-Doo, Indian Motorcycles, ROXOR, CFMOTO, and Excelsior-Henderson. Additionally, Auringer has recruited and placed a wealth of top talent in the powersports industry over 17 years with his personal business Dave Auringer & Associates.
As Volcon's Southeast Regional Sales Manager, Ken Cook will be responsible for establishing business in some of the most critical powersports territories in the US. Cook, with a strong history of sales and distribution, brings an incredible rolodex of contacts to Volcon in the Southeast. After many successful years working for Linhai -- a manufacturer that makes some of Yamaha's engines, generators and scooters -- Cook went on to head up one of the most successful regions for Mahindra, signing some of the biggest powersports dealers in the South. After many years as one of the top 3 salesmen for the company, he joined Volcon to bring the innovative and category-defining off-road products to powersports dealers across the Southeast territory.
"The US powersports dealer base is the backbone of distribution within the space. At Volcon, our aim is to build a sales team our dealers love to work with, not to mention a team with the knowledge and experience to take us to the next level of sales and distribution," said Jordan Davis, Volcon's Chief Executive Officer. "We see the mix of innovative technology, transformative product design, and superior human talent as the recipe for our success. Both Dave and Ken are an outstanding addition to our team, and we're excited to have them both on board."
