HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Superior Boiler announced that Nick LeJeune has been named vice president, sales & marketing for Superior Holding and that Don Whitman has been named vice president, general manager of the company’s Richmond, Virginia-based industrial watertube division.

In his new role, LeJeune will lead the sales and marketing initiatives for all Superior Holding businesses, which manufacture products in both Hutchinson, Kansas, and Richmond. He joined Superior in mid-2018 as president and general manager of the watertube boiler division. LeJeune has extensive experience working for both manufacturers and sales representative firms since becoming involved in the boiler industry many years ago. He will relocate from Richmond to Hutchinson.

Whitman, who also has an extensive background in the boiler industry, has worked for the past 28 years helping lead another industry company in a capacity similar to his new role with Superior. He will be responsible for the Richmond facility’s day-to-day operations, including complete profit-and-loss management oversight.

“Superior is thrilled to see Nick step into an expanded role and to have an industry professional of Don’s caliber join our team,” said Doug Wright, president and CEO, Superior Boiler. “Nick did an excellent job of managing our Richmond operations since joining our team, and we’re excited about his ability to now develop the best possible sales channels for Superior Boiler.
