Atlas Copco has announced the appointments of two new managers in its Ludlow, Mass., store. Effective immediately, Andy Rivet has accepted the position of store manager and Cory Lapan will take over in Rivet’s former position as service manager at that location.
In his new role, Rivet reports directly to Dave Pietrzykowski, vice president of store channel operations.
“Andy’s service background coupled with his exemplary customer service skills are a winning combination that will ensure his success in this new role,” said Pietrzykowski.
Rivet had served as service manager at the Ludlow location since 2005. He originally joined Atlas Copco as a field service technician in May 2000. In his new role as store manager serving the Northeast region, he will oversee Atlas Copco the Surface Drilling Equipment, Drilling Solutions, Geotechnical Drilling and Exploration (GDE) and Dynapac product lines.
Rivet is also responsible for managing the Ludlow team comprised of Debbie Rodzen, administration manager; Jerome Pie, Dynapac sales representative; Brian M. Greene, Northeast water well sales representative; Ken Kasavage, Northeast GDE sales manager; and newly appointed service manager, Cory Lapan.
“Cory’s proven leadership, willingness to learn and ability to rise above challenging situations makes him a great fit to the position,” Rivet said.
First joining Atlas Copco in February 2006, Lapan had served as a field technician at the Atlas Copco–Ludlow service center until this appointment.
