Outside Sales

INDUSTRY – 52 YEARS

I started in this industry in 1971, working for a small wholesaler named Thermal Supply, Inc. I was hired by the owners Al Lambeth and Jack Tupper, both good people who took a chance. I spent sixteen years there; first in the warehouse, then inside sales, outside sales, management, and finally control of growth ideas and planning.

My growth has been based on customer service, regardless of the nature, I take care of the customer in an extremely short period of time. Where others take days, I took hours and if they took hours, I took minutes. I love this industry and most of the people I have met while being a part of this industry. I am lucky to be part of this great team and will enjoy watching CE-Sales grow to the next level of excellence and success.
