Seventeen years of sales & marketing experience in a broad range of business-to-business segments: automotive, industrial and commercial. Products marketed include non woven & composite materials, electrical connectors & wiring systems and roller bearings. Strengths include the ability to identify opportunities, determine customer needs, develop value-added solutions and effectively sell value in cost-driven market segments. New business development through careful market research and a focused sales effort is one of my passions.
