Ryko Solutions Inc., North America’s largest provider of car wash equipment, cleaning solutions, and technical services, announced that David Wingert has joined the organization in the new role of senior vice president, Sales and Marketing.
He will be tasked with sustaining the company’s double-digit revenue growth and continuing to deliver Ryko’s business partners with exceptional customer satisfaction.
Wingert brings to Ryko a successful 15-year track record in sales and marketing leadership, including seven years at PDQ Manufacturing Inc. following its acquisition by Dover Corp. Most recently, as vice president of sales for Lustra Professional Car Care Products, Wingert worked diligently to both expand the company’s distribution footprint and to bring new and innovative solutions to market, including the introduction of the company’s ultra-concentrated chemical program and the formation and launch of its Solution Applications Division. In joining Ryko, he returns to Iowa where he had had a successful career with Pella Corp., a leading supplier of home improvement products.
“David is a deeply knowledgeable and well-respected leader in the car care industry. He adds diverse industry expertise and a highly valued ‘voice of customer’ at Ryko,” explained Steven L’Heureux, CEO, Ryko Solutions Inc. “As a key member of our senior leadership team, he’ll play a critical strategic role in helping Ryko not merely respond to market trends, but enable us to shape and lead the future direction of the car care industry.”
“What I see in Ryko is a company that has taken a bold look at the car care industry and identified what the end customer needs to get to profitability,” commented Wingert. “They have added the right people in key management and tactical positions; made the right investments where needed in the factory, in the field and in engineering development; and completely supported research and development and embraced the right level of new technology. At the end of the day, this is a company that is living up to its name as a true and complete solutions provider.”
