After 40-plus years in the pump industry Chuck Emmerling, BJM Pump's midwest regional manager has retired. Emmerling and his wife Rosemary decided at the end of 2013 that they will begin their well-earned retirement. While remaining residents of Ohio, home of many grandchildren, they will now have time for extended trips to Florida and elsewhere with family and friends.
Gary Brown has joined the BJM sales team to succeed Emmerling as the new midwest regional sales manager. Brown will be responsible for establishing and supporting pump distribution and BJM Pumps selling channels for the 13 upper midwest States. He spent more than 13 years working for a large pump distributor in Missouri and more recently spent time working for a high tech pump manufacturer, also headquartered in the Midwest. Brown is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, a former Navy pilot and a Gulf War veteran. He currently resides in the St. Louis area with his wife and seven children.
