Last week Dave Tremain replaced current General Manager and President Ron Straub at the Straub International Great Bend store. “The change was necessary as our company continues to grow; we need capable people at every level and the knowledge and experience Dave Tremain has to offer will have a positive impact on the company. I will now focus my full attention to special projects such as the expansion of the Wichita store and guiding our Marketing efforts.” said Ron Straub.
Tremain had worked previously as a Territory Sales Manager for Case IH in western Kansas so he is familiar with the market. Said Tremain, “This was a tremendous opportunity for me and my family and while I understand the products and market I am excited to meet our customers and service their needs”, Tremain added “to meet demand and properly service our customers we have hired a new Parts Manager- Richard Soukup and Service Manager Dick Dobrovolny to strengthen all aspects of our Great Bend store’s business. Both of these individuals have extensive industry experience, and we’re confident that they will provide exceptional service to our customers.”
Prior to working as a sales manager for Case IH Dave Tremain worked as a service manager at Krone NA in Memphis, Tenn. and was transferred to Kansas to head the market development of large commercial line of forage harvesters and square balers. He is a KSU graduate and his wife Angela is a teacher. They have six children and four grandchildren.
