Continuous improvement is a major tenet of PFERD’s success. We not only seek to improve processes and products, but also the ways in which we operate. Overall, we strive to provide the best possible service to our customers.
We’ve recently realigned our sales structure to help us do just that. We’ve gone from two regions to three – with a West, Central and an East Region (see the map
below). By splitting up the territories this way, our sales staff will be able to build better relationships within their customer bases. Different regions have different needs, so we want to make sure all customers receive the attention and representation they need.
Along with this restructuring comes some exciting changes to our Sales Management Team! Our Western Region, formerly headed up by Ross Bevacqua, who has retired after 16 years of dedicated service to PFERD, is now being managed by John Hibbard. John has had a successful 23 year career in various sales and operation roles at Stellar Industrial – a longtime distribution partner of PFERD’s. John’s strong reputation in the industry and proven track record of prolonged success enable him to lead the Region with continued success and growth.
Our Central Region is being headed up by Jeff Hamilton, who was recently promoted to the position having served as Sales Territory Manager in the Mid-Atlantic area. Jeff brings several years of sales and technical experience to his new role, which gives him a keen understanding of end user and distributor needs in the metal working industry.
Don Brewer, who has been with PFERD for three years, will continue as Regional Sales Manager for the East. Don’s strong knowledge and experience in the industry, as well as his dedication to PFERD ensures continued growth and success in a newly realigned Eastern Region.
John, Jeff and Don all report to Jon-Michael Raymond, VP Sales, who’s leading our overall sales effort here in the US. We have a lot of exciting things in store for 2018 and know we have the right sales leadership team in place to position us for continued growth with a focus on collaborating with customers to offer the most innovative, products and solutions in the industry.
