Bishop Wisecarver Appoints New National Sales Manager

April 15, 2006—Bishop-Wisecarver Corporation announced it has appointed Michael McVeigh, a 20-year veteran in the bearing and linear motion industries, as National Sales Manager.

In his new role, McVeigh will manage the company's North American direct sales force and manufacturer's rep organizations.

McVeigh most recently held a similar position as Director of Sales at NSK Precision America, Inc., where he was responsible for OEM and distribution sales throughout the United States.

According to the company's press release, NSK Precision America's sales increased substantially due to McVeigh's strategy for expanding development across specific markets and initiatives that resulted in a significant increase in sales to after-market distributors.

"Bishop-Wisecarver has a superior product line, and a culture that fosters innovation, not only in product development, but in all areas of the operation," says McVeigh. "I am proud to represent BWC, and I look forward to 'getting the wheels in motion'."

Prior to his position as Director of Sales, McVeigh held other roles at NSK Precision America, including National Sales Manager, and National Sales and Marketing Manager. He has previously held key Sales Management roles at American Koyo, a manufacturer of ball and roller bearings, NSK Corporation, and MRC Division of TRW, a manufacturer of ball bearings.
