Key Technology, Walla Walla, Wash., has appointed Jesus Acevedo as Pacific Northwest sales manager.

It's the second time he has worked for the equipment manufacturer.

Acevedo most recently was an account manager at Raymond Handling Concepts and a sales representative at Pro Sales. He was an international sales engineer at Key Technology, according to a news release.

“When he was a sales engineer here several years ago, he acquired a deep understanding of our products and the needs of our customers, and since then, he’s gained a lot of direct sales experience,” Ray Kramer, senior director of North American sales, said in the release.

Acevedo, who is based in Yakima, Wash., succeeds Denny Snyder, who is retiring after almost 20 years at Key Technology.
