Tsurumi Pump names regional sales manager

By |  April 11, 2022


Tsurumi Pump introduced Slater Blanchard as its new Southwest regional sales manager.

Blanchard has held general manager positions at several pump companies and has experience with pumps manufactured by Tsurumi. He says he is passionate about the pump industry and is eager to work for a reputable manufacturer such as Tsurumi.

In his new role, Blanchard will oversee Tsurumi pump sales in the Southwest, source equipment and materials, and work with distributors to maximize efficiency and customer support in the region. He will also visit distributors, attend trade shows and visit jobsites in the region to provide technical expertise.

With nearly 20 years of experience in the industry, Tsurumi says Blanchard will bring valuable expertise to the company.

“People still like to do business with people,” Blanchard says. “When I first saw the job post I felt it could be a great fit for me. I have worked with Chuck [Rickman] and Glenn [Wieczorek] in the past and that has always been a great experience. With great leaders, I know it must be a positive culture. Plus, I have a passion for the pump industry. I enjoy fluid dynamics and I like new challenges.”

Rickman is Tsurumi’s vice president of sales, and Wieczorek is the company’s managing director.

“I’m looking forward to helping Tsurumi customers find solutions to their unique challenges,”  Blanchard says. “I also learn a lot from these experiences and that helps me consult with a variety of companies. I’m looking forward to this new chapter.”

Adds Rickman: “Slater is personable and has a ton of experience in helping customers achieve their goals. His expertise with industrial companies makes him a great fit for Tsurumi.”
