How long have you worked in this position and what are your key duties?
I’ve been with Trelleborg since May 2017 and my key duties include maintaining contact with key accounts and prospects, building relationships at all levels of the organization, keeping ahead of market trends and competitive products as well as working with and developing marketing, product and sales plans.
I am also tasked with developing and identifying opportunities to direct the future growth of the business through new products, markets and services that fit the core competencies of the future strategic direction of the company.
How long have you been with Trelleborg in total and what do you like about working with Trelleborg?
I like the team approach to many aspects of the job but also having some autonomy within my position. All of the people that I have an interacted with really enjoy doing what they do and have a passion to make sure we are the best place to work.
How do you think the business in your area is going to evolve in the future? How are you preparing for this?
The market will start to change soon due to new ideas coming into the field, which will mean companies will look at other ways of doing things. This puts us at an advantage as we focus on new ideas and technologies to create a value-added approach to the market place.
What is most important in your field of work?
Doing business in this area is all about relationships. Building relationships and creating trust with buyers, managers and owners. Being new to the industry will be an added challenge but being diligent and supplying customers with what they ask for, when they ask for it, will allow me to gain their trust and build that relationship. Never over promise!
What do you do in your free time?
I spend as much time as possible with my family: my wife, my three step-daughters, my son and our dog “Huggy Bear.” I enjoy watching sports -- either on TV and live -- especially when my alma mater, West Virginia University, is playing. My eldest stepdaughter is now a freshman at WVU and plays in the marching band, which is a big thrill for me and my family. I’m also a big Chicago Blackhawks fan as well!
