Tucker Rocky’s Vice President of Marketing Bill Carter left the Texas-based distributor in August to take a similar job in another industry.
Carter, who was with Tucker Rocky for nine years, is now director of marketing for Traxxas, the world’s leader in ready-to-race radio controller hobby class vehicles.
“These aren’t toys,” Carter said of the company’s radio-controlled vehicles. “We’ve got a road race car that goes over 70 mph and we’ve got stadium trucks that do 45-50 mph. It’s pretty powerful stuff.”
Carter said his job change was a result of him having “a desire to do something new” and not anything to due with Tucker Rocky. “Tucker was doing great and all of the brands were doing great,” he said. “We were rocking and rolling.”
