Kinetico Appoints New Director Of U.S. Dealer Sales

Edward P. Jones IV returns to the Kinetico team

Kinetico, Inc., has announced that Ted Jones has been named director of U.S. dealer sales.

Jones grew up working in his family's water treatment business, Gordon Bros. Water in Salem, Ohio. Upon graduating college, Jones joined Kinetico as a district manager covering the west coast. After several years, he moved to Ohio and worked at Kinetico's corporate headquarters as national sales training manager. Jones later advanced to the position of Kinetico's western regional manager and returned to California. After 18 years of valued service, Jones left Kinetico in 2005 to pursue an opportunity with Liberty Reverse Mortgage (Genworth Financial), where he served as their vice president of sales.

"We're very excited to have Ted back. The knowledge and experience he gained in his most recent position combined with his solid background and enthusiasm make Ted the optimal choice for this position," said Gary Martin, Kinetico vice president of sales. "He is a natural leader with proven results. And our dealers are very excited to be working with him again."

As director of U.S. dealer sales, Jones will nurture the growth and prosperity of individual Kinetico dealers and the network as a whole by ensuring effective communication, providing support resources and leadership as well as developing and implementing value-enhanced programs. He is also charged with broadening the company's distribution network in the U.S. and assisting with new dealer startup.

"Changing people's lives by improving their water has always been important to me," Jones said. "I am excited to continue on that journey again with Kinetico."
