Former Navy Petty Officer Ryan Bain has joined Blue Ox as RV products sales representative for the upper Midwest serving RV and truck accessory customers in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota, according to Blue Ox President and CEO Ellen Kietzmann.
Prior to joining the Blue Ox team, Bain worked as a management trainee for Enterprise Holdings, where he trained junior personnel in computer programs used, rental process, proper underwriting and risk management.
From 2007-12 he served as a Petty Officer Third Class in the U.S. Navy, where he was responsible for the safe launching and recovering of aircraft on board naval vessels while underway, as well as supervising and training eight junior personnel.
“We are excited to add Ryan to the team. His account management experience will help develop and grow relationships in his territory and for Blue Ox,” Blue Ox Sales Manager Alex Walker said.
Bain earned his Bachelor of Science degree in behavioral science from Bellevue University and a Master of Science degree in human resource management from the same university.
“I have a real passion for the outdoors and enjoy camping, hiking and kayaking,” Bain said in a news release. “It’s been a lot of fun just visiting and talking to these dealers about their needs and how Blue Ox can help. The one thing that really impresses me is how nice everyone in the industry is–I know I am going enjoy this new position.”
