WPS Adds Industry Veterans, Bolsters Global Sales Force

WPS welcomes Troy Ozias, senior director of field sales, and Jamie Nutzmann, director of international sales.

Western Power Sports (WPS) announced the addition of Troy Ozias, senior director of field sales, and Jamie Nutzmann, director of international sales, to its global sales management team.

Ozias brings vast knowledge and over 20 years of sales experience in roles of increasing responsibility from a territory sales representative to regional sales vice president. Most recently, Ozias worked at The Parts House based in Jacksonville, Florida, as regional vice president, where he successfully led the sales organization through transformation to expand the customer base and achieve sales targets across seven markets. Prior to that, Ozias led the sales team as regional sales director at WURTH USA, responsible for 20 districts and over 250 sales reps. Ozias graduated from Gardner Webb University with a degree in business administration.

In this role, Ozias will be located in Knoxville, Tennessee, and will be responsible for the strategic day-to-day operations of the entire national sales operation, leading the regional sales managers and working alongside department managers to drive overall sales business and growth.

Jamie Nutzmann has over 25 years of sales expertise in global brand positioning, sales management and e-commerce. Previously the director of international e-commerce and strategic accounts at Tucker Powersports, Nutzmann managed domestic and international sales teams that delivered growth on over a $165-million book of business and expanded Tucker’s direct-to-consumer (D2C) Amazon business. Before Tucker, Nutzmann held the position of vice president of sales at Kuryakyn and Mustang Motorcycle Products, where he orchestrated global growth in business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) channels and oversaw a $50-million sales portfolio.

In this role, Nutzmann will be responsible for all international relations and distributor sales performance for FLY products on an international scale. While liaising closely with our internal sales, apparel, procurement and logistics teams, shipping vendors and other stakeholders invested in FLY, the international team of Courtney Schroeder, James Clough, Manuel Rodriguez and Taylor Mowry will report to him. In addition, Nutzmann will be responsible for management of WPS’s strategic marketplace positioning with Kendra Keene. Nutzmann will reside in New Richmond, Wisconsin, and will frequently travel to Boise, Idaho, and internationally.
