Arlington Industries (Scranton, Pa.): Nick Montalbano has been appointed Eastern regional sales manager effective Jan. 2. He will be based in Warwick, R.I.
Montalbano began his career in the electrical industry with Dual-Lite in 1980. He joins Arlington following a 26-year career with AFC Cabling Systems (now part of Atkore), where he held increasing positions of responsibility in purchasing, manufacturing and sales management. Montalbano most recently served as the national sales manager for Kaf-Tech. In his new role he will work with rep agencies in promoting and selling Arlington’s products and to distributors, end users and installers from Maine to Virginia.
This position became available because Ray Kennedy, Arlington’s national sales manager, who also functioned as regional sales manager for the Eastern Seaboard, wanted to reduce his 2013 travel schedule. Kennedy, a well-known industry veteran and the leader of Arlington’s sales efforts for more than 24 years, will remain with the company focusing on special projects, product positioning and strategic actions for Arlington President Tom Stark. Don Ambrose, formerly Southern regional sales manager, will assume Kennedy’s position as national sales manager effective Jan. 2.
