Big Shoes To Fill

By Brian Ellis on 1/29/2019

It was mentioned earlier that we have some exciting changes to our sales team for 2019 and beyond.  We would feel bad if we didn’t take the time to thank one of our most tenured territory salespersons, Rex Bartelmay.  Rex has been a fixture for many years at our Peoria sales and we hope in retirement he still stops by to enjoy a cup of coffee with the team or to tell us how great his golf game is getting!

Rex’s shoes will be tough to fill, but we think we have someone who is up to the task in Ken Peplow.  Ken and Rex were friends before they were co workers and if anyone can step right in and take care of our clients with the same care and dedication, it’s Ken!  Ken will be adding the area of Illinois south of Interstate 80 to his area of responsibility and we look forward to a seamless transition for our clients.

Ken lives in Charleston, IL with his wife Lisa. Between them, they have 5 children and spend much of their free time chasing around 4 grandchildren.  Ken was raised in Normal, IL and is pleased to work in a territory where he feels at home.  Give Ken a call at 217-240-1127 or email at to consign or purchase equipment at any of our upcoming auctions around the country.  Thanks Rex and Ken for their commitment to our clients at Taylor and Martin Auctioneers!
