MOORPARK, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 11, 2015) - TestEquity, a value-added distributor of test and measurement equipment and services since 1971, today announced the appointment of Kurt Anderson as eastern region sales manager. In his new role, Mr. Anderson will lead expansion efforts in the Eastern United States for TestEquity's new line of tools and supplies for labs and electronics manufacturing, which the company acquired in its recent purchase of EWD Solutions. He will be responsible for assembling and training an outside sales team to establish a presence for the line in the region while also providing exceptional service and support for customers. In addition, to bolster support for its customers in Southern California, TestEquity has appointed John Deutsch as an account manager.

Mr. Anderson has over 30 years of experience in the electronic assembly manufacturing industry. From territory manager to national market manager, he has held key sales positions for leading regional and national distributors, including Marshall Industries, Com-Kyl, EIS, Hisco, Kimco, and Stanley Supply & Services. Mr. Anderson has led numerous successful expansion efforts throughout North America.

As account manager, Mr. Deutsch will perform outside sales functions for TestEquity in Southern California. He has 13 years of sales management experience in the test and measurement industry, and comes to TestEquity from Stanley Supply & Service, where he served as territory sales manager in Southern California and Nevada. Previously, Mr. Deutsch held the positions of government account manager at Newark In One and account executive at SMC Corporation.

"With their extensive consultative sales experience, Kurt and John are both valuable additions to our sales team," said Scott Maclin, vice president of sales for TestEquity's production tools and supplies business. "As demonstrated by his impressive track record of successful expansion efforts, Kurt will play an integral role as we break ground with our new line of tools and supplies for labs and electronics manufacturing in the Eastern U.S., while John will be instrumental in supporting our Southern Californian customers and extending our reach in the region."

Both Mr. Anderson and Mr. Deutsch report to Scott Maclin.
