After more than 40 years in the pump industry, Chuck Emmerling, BJM Pump's Midwest regional manager, has retired. Chuck and his wife Rosemary decided at the end of 2013 that they will begin their retirement.

In light of Emmerling’s retirement, BJM Pumps announced Gary Brown joined the BJM sales team as the new Midwest regional sales manager.

Brown will be responsible for establishing and supporting pump distribution and BJM Pumps selling channels for the 13 upper Midwest states. Brown spent over 13 years working for a large pump distributor in Missouri, and more recently, spent time working for a high tech pump manufacturer in the Midwest. Gary is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, a former Navy pilot and is a Gulf War Veteran. He currently resides in the St. Louis area with his wife and seven children.
