Park City, KS (May 20, 2016) – Murphy Tractor & Equipment Co., Inc., has added two new salesmen to join the sales staff in Nebraska. Tanner Christie has been added to the Territory Sales Manager team in Lincoln, Nebraska, while Jason Baker has accepted the position of Compact Equipment Sales Manager in North Platte, Nebraska.

Tanner Christie will be responsible for new and used heavy construction equipment, attachments and trailer sales in southeastern Nebraska. Tanner attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where he studied marketing and accounting. His previous work experience includes sales, finance and construction work. Tanner is excited to get started in his new role. “I was attracted to Murphy Tractor because it is a very well respected company and it was a great opportunity. I am looking forward to building new relationships and providing my customers with the best quality equipment possible,” states Tanner.

In Jason Baker’s new position, he will specialize in promoting John Deere skid steers, compact track loaders and compact excavators throughout western Nebraska. Jason attended Mid-Plains Community College where he graduated with a degree in Building Construction Technology. Jason joined the U.S. Army in 2006 as a tank crewman and deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan before transitioning to the Nebraska National Guard in 2014. Most recently, he spent time as a conductor for the Union Pacific Railroad. Jason is eager to get started in his sales position with Murphy Tractor. “I like the fact that Murphy Tractor is small enough that everyone in the company feels as though their job is important and their opinion matters, but large enough that it is one of the top competitors in this region. I am looking forward to learning all about John Deere construction equipment and being able to sell quality products to the hard working people of western Nebraska,” Jason explains.
