The New Jersey-based company said Bench’s new responsibilities will encompass the management of the entire sales effort: in-house and outside sales teams, counter and local pickup sales, product training, boat show scheduling, promotional materials and the planning and implementation of Win-Tron’s annual November Virtual Online Dealer Show.

“I have known Jerry since his days at E&B Marine in the 1980s,” Win-Tron Electronics president Eddie Winder said in a statement. “His can-do attitude, wealth of experience and business acumen are well known in the industry and have made a lasting impact on our company. I look forward to his continued contribution as he accepts the opportunities and challenges of his new position.”

Bench joined Win-Tron in February 2015 as a sales associate, having previously worked in the automotive industry as a parts and service director. He also has retail, wholesale, business development, sales, marketing and purchasing experience.

Bench began his career in 1982 at E&B Marine, which his grandfather, Ernie, founded in 1956.

Win-Tron said E&B Marine was an early pioneer in electronic shopping. In 1986 E&B Marine introduced the Accessory Center, a kiosk in each of its 25 retail stores, enabling shoppers to electronically order boats and boating accessories that included anchors, 30-foot boats and ship-to-shore radios. The company was sold in 1988.
