Cashco Appoints EPC Management Director

Ellsworth, Kansas, USA – November 2014 — Citing his years of experience with Cashco and his proficiency in the engineering field, Cashco, Inc. has appointed Dan Ray to the position of Director of EPC Management. In his new role, Ray will be responsible for sales growth in North America through Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) for both Cashco, Inc. and VCI brand products.
According to Dimity Ankerholz, Cashco Sales and Marketing Manager and supervisor over the new position, Ray began his career in the process control industry in 1981. Prior to joining Cashco in 1986 as Engineering Lab Manager, he served as an instrumentation technician and then shop manager for ITT Barton Industrial Sales.
“Although his first job at Cashco involved product research and development, Dan transitioned into regional sales management in 2005, where he handled an extensive geographical territory,” Ankerholz relates. “Consequently, he has more than two decades of experience with both product sales and product engineering and development. With such a well-rounded background, we couldn’t be happier to have him in this new position. We’re confident our customers will benefit as much as we do.”

Cashco Names Business Development and Relations Manager

Ellsworth, Kansas, USA – April 2015 — In an effort to further expand international sales and service, Cashco, Inc. has appointed Kelsea Betzen to the position of Business Development and Relations Manager.
According to Clint Rogers, Cashco General Manager and supervisor over the new position, Kelsea will be instrumental in the logistics, costing and pricing of both inbound and outbound goods as Cashco continues to develop overseas vendors and inter-company trade.
“She will also help develop our regional pricing structure with sales and work closely with our international offices on both legal and financial matters,” he adds. “So I am pleased to have Kelsea in this new role.”
“Basically I will be the point of contact for all of our international representatives,” Betzen relates, noting that she has been with Cashco for nearly two years.
A native of Ellsworth, Kansas, Kelsea returned to her “home town” in 2013 when she joined Cashco as a staff accountant in the accounting department. Prior to her previous role at Cashco, she lived in Wichita, Kansas, where she worked for Manpower Inc., as well as an accounting firm, while acquiring a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an undergraduate emphasis in International Business from Wichita State University. She then began working on completing her Masters of Business Administration degree from Wichita State, which she completed in May 2014.
As a newlywed this past December 2014, Kelsea says she enjoys watching movies and spending time with her husband and their three dogs when she is not at work. However, as someone who enjoys traveling, she also has dreams of visiting more of the countries in which Cashco conducts international business.
In addition to a year of college study in Thailand, Kelsea has already spent time in Mexico, Burma, Laos, India, Indonesia and in various parts of Europe, observing how businesses in other countries differ from those in the United States and how they approach accounting differently.
“Since we now have sales and service offices in Brazil and Germany, not to mention sales growth throughout the world, we definitely see the value in naming Kelsea as Business Development and Relations Manager,” Rogers concludes. “She not only offers a combined knowledge of accounting and international business, but she has first-hand experience with business in Europe and southeast Asia. On top of all that, she brings along Spanish as a second language.”
