Just in time for tax season, Jon Foster becomes the new Husqvarna North America Sales Planner.

In his new role with Husky, Foster will be responsible for managing the complete pipeline for motorcycle inventory. He will analyze sales trends and assist dealers in managing their stock.

Corey Eastman (Husqvarna National Marketing Manager) says: “Jon is a seasoned pro and with more than 30 years experience in BMWs retail and wholesale operations, he knows what the dealers are facing first hand.”

In addition to his wealth of experience with Husqvarna’s parent company, most recently as Quality Assurance Manager for BMW, Foster is also an avid motorcycle enthusiast, both street and dirt.

Foster shifted gears from BMW to join Husqvarna’s North America management team shortly after the new “No Fooling” retail finance offer was introduced.

Jon Foster says: “With 2.99% APR on all 2011s and terms up to 60 months, I think we can help the dealers move some motorcycles through the pipeline.”

This announcement follows on the heels of the news that another industry veteran, Derek Sorenson, had been hired to help with racing and product planning.

Corey Eastman says: “Both Jon and Derek are great additions to the Husqvarna team.”
