Brunswick officials have announced multiple changes to the U.S. sales team in order to further support customer demand across the Capital Equipment division. Effective immediately, Derek Ransom has been named regional modernization sales manager and Mike DuCharme has been appointed area sales manager/manager of U.S. electronic sales.

In his new role, Ransom will be responsible for the modernization capital equipment sales in the states of Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee, as well as directing the sales managers for the Southeast region. Ransom has been with Brunswick since 2005.

DuCharme will take on sales responsibility for Alabama, Florida and Georgia, and will support the U.S. modernization team with Sync technical sales support. DuCharme joined Brunswick in 2015.

“Fueled by the demand for Sync Scoring and other innovative Capital Equipment products designed to enhance the bowlers’ experience, Brunswick has seen a significant increase in modernization sales activity. Proprietors today are faced with complex business challenges, and Brunswick has been working with proprietors and other industry leaders to develop and promote products and equipment to address these issues,” said Brent Perrier, Brunswick Bowling products CEO. “We are fortunate to have the best talent in the industry and continue to realign and apply their specialties where needed in order to lead the bowling industry into an era of innovation and global expansion.”
