Rachel Clark Promoted to VP of Sales & Marketing
ELGIN, IL, May 16, 2017 – K40 Electronics, the premier manufacturer of custom-installed vehicle radar and laser detection systems for “fast-lane” drivers, is pleased to announce the promotion of Rachel Clark to Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Clark previously had been National Sales Manager.
“Rachel has, literally, risen through the K40 ranks,” said Peggy Finley, President and CEO of K40. “She started with us in 1999 testing CB radio antennas and working in the warehouse. Eventually, she became a Regional Sales Manager before earning the National Sales Manager position. Her ability to communicate the K40 story, her dedication to the independent dealer and her rich network of relationships among other 12-volt automotive accessory manufacturers have been instrumental in the growth and success of K40.”
Clark will assume the day-to-day duties of managing the company from Finley, who herself started with K40 as a Regional Sales Manager in 1981 and advanced within the company before purchasing K40 Electronics in 2009. Clark will work closely with Debbie Grex, K40’s Vice President of Operations.
“I am grateful for Peggy’s trust, but more than that, I am grateful for her friendship,” Clark said. “I am excited about the opportunity to lead our great team and build on K40’s success.”
Finley concurred, adding, “I’m lucky. Rachel and our entire team have given me the luxury of spending time with my family and my grandchildren. Having such capable leadership and such a solid group in place leaves me fully confident that K40 will continue to create lasting relationships and great radar products that lead the industry.”
