Xantrex has appointed Nathan Costa as East Coast sales manager in line with its growth plan for 2015.
Xantrex said it 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. Costa’s appointment propels this strategy forward as he will 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 over $6 million in service contracts. He is nominated for Schneider Electric’s prestigious “Presidential Candidate” award for his outstanding effort in creating new business opportunities in 2014. Costa has worked in various sales capacities within Schneider Electric before his appointment as the service manager.
