Over twenty-five years in Industrial and Instrumentation Sales with over seventeen years experience in valve actuation, flow measurement
and control sales. Self-starter who is equally at ease working independently or as a supporting member in a team-oriented environment.
Highly computer literate in addition to being a professional speaker/entertainer.

While I was still in Inside Sales at Rawson, LP - because of my aptitude to grasp new product concepts - I was appointed as “Product
Champion” (the company’s “go-to” person) for two major product lines – Rexa Actuators and Cashco Regulators. Four years into my
tenure with Rawson, I was promoted to Technical Quotes Representative. In this position I have been honing my valve knowledge, while
contributing to the team with my actuator background and PC skills.

After spending one year as an Inside Sales Representative at BETTIS, I was quickly promoted to Technical Sales Trainer / Training
Coordinator, where I was truly able to put to use my computer, technical, people and presentational skills handling all aspects of
Training: I developed and presented technical training seminars for sales forces and engineers, both locally and abroad.

I spent the last 8 years of my 13 year career with Hydril, as well as my 2 year tenure at ITT Snyder, in Inside Sales. My primary Sales
duties at Hydril included phone sales, customer support, quotes, order entry & expediting as well as RMA's & Credits. My duties at ITT
Snyder were very similar, with the exception of spending a considerable amount of time assisting in refining their computer system and
training their personnel.
