Xantrex adds East Coast sales manager

Xantrex said it is embarking on an aggressive growth plan for 2015 as a result of the robust mobile AC power market accelerated by the improved economic environment.

Xantrex adopted a regional sales structure last year to be closer to its customer base to enable faster response time and the ability to quickly implement customer and market-specific projects, including training, merchandising and regional sales events.

The company appointed Nathan Costa as the East Coast sales manager to manage an existing account portfolio and explore new opportunities within the marine, RV, commercial truck, distribution and OEM channels.

Costa, based out of Providence, R.I., joins the Xantrex team from the Schneider Electric IT business, where he served as the service manager responsible for more than $6 million in service contracts.

“Nathan is customer-centric and understands the value of great service. He has a sharp business acumen and believes in strong relationships. Our business is very much relationship-driven, which is where Nathan excels, and in addition, he also brings a solid technical background that will support our OEM and aftermarket partners,” John McMillan, director of sales for Xantrex-branded products at Schneider Electric, said in a statement.
