MTA Distributing recently hired two new sales representatives, Mitch Gerwin and Jim Newell, to cover territories in Ohio, Michigan and New York.
Gerwin will cover the Michigan and northwest Ohio territory. He is a graduate of Motorcycle Mechanics Institute with focus on suspension and motor technologies. Gerwin has over 10 years of industry experience and is a racer for GLMX, D14 MX and off road events.
“As an avid rider and industry enthusiast, I am beyond excited to join the MTA team,” Gerwin said. “Michigan roots run deep within our company, positioning us with a strong network of dealers and riders alike.”
Newell will cover the New York territory for MTA. “I am looking forward to bringing the varied product lines offered by MTA to the dealers of New York,” Newell said.
Newell grew up working at his family’s multi-franchise motorcycle dealership as parts counter representative, technician, warranty manager and dealership accountant. He combines years of industry experience working as a tire vendor and technician at Americade; as owner and operator of a small accessory and repair shop; and as a sales representative for a national motorcycle parts and accessories distributor.
Newell and his family participated in local and regional flat track racing and he participated in the amateur national championships in both TT and ice racing.
