Progress Mfg. Hires Two More to Sales Team

Progress Mfg. recently welcomed Wayne Mitchell and Craig Williston to the sales team supporting Canadian dealers. Kim Dewsnup, Progress Mfg.’s account manager, will work with them to represent the “Canadian Tested, Canadian Proven” Equal-i-zer hitch and Fastway Trailer products. 

“I am thrilled to be working with both Wayne and Craig,” said Dewsnup. “They are joining the team with years of experience and great relationships, providing us with a great spot in the market. It will be fun to see what we can achieve as we work together.”

Williston has worked in the RV industry for the last 14 years. Most recently he worked as an outside sales rep with NTP Stag Keystone. Williston is well-known in the RV industry, and has strong relationships across Canada. 

Mitchell entered the RV industry in 2003 with Victorian Industries Limited. In 2011, Mitchell left Victorian and took a position with Demco representing the Hijacker brand. In 2016, he founded GWN Marketing, and began working with ADCO, Samlex, Valterra, and most recently, Progress Mfg.

Mitchell and Williston are factory trained for both the Equal-i-zer hitch and Fastway products. They traveled to Progress Mfg. headquarters in Provo, Utah, to not only receive the training, but also see where the products are made, how they are made, and to spend some time experiencing Utah on a fishing trip with Dewsnup. 

“With Canadian feet on the ground, working with the Canadian dealers, it will be fun to watch the Equal-i-zer hitch and Fastway brands continue to grow across Canada,” said Rich Elliott, director of sales and marketing. “We appreciate our Canadian dealers and are looking forward to providing even more support to them with Craig and Wayne.”
