KANSAS CITY, MO – Tnemec recently welcomed Brian Cheshire as the new Sales Director of Water & Wastewater. Cheshire, a 20-year veteran in the coatings industry, will focus on the overall market strategy and sales activity for this key market. Cheshire’s appointment comes after the former sales director, Vaughn O’Dea, was promoted to Director of Epoxytec, a subsidiary of Tnemec.

“Cheshire brings years of coatings experience in a broad spectrum of industrial and commercial markets,” said John C. Miller, Vice President of Sales & Business Development. “We know he will be a great fit at Tnemec, where his expertise will play a key role in the growth of the water & wastewater business.” 

Prior to joining Tnemec, Cheshire served as Carboline’s Market Manager for Water & Wastewater for two years after spending a year working for SteelCon Coatings Systems, a Tnemec Co. sales agency. Prior to those positions, he spent many years of his career with Sherwin Williams in a variety of roles. 

In addition to his years of industry experience, Cheshire is an Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP) Senior Certified Coatings Inspector and is heavily involved in AMPP committees on both the national and regional level. He is also involved with the American Water Works Association (AWWA), the Water Environment Federation (WEF), American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International, the International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI), and the American Concrete Institute (ACI).
