Ferriot Appoints New Director of Sales and Marketing
Growing Plastics Industry Leader Strengthens Resources
Akron, Ohio, December 7, 2015: Ferriot Inc., a custom injection molding and contract manufacturing company, has appointed Dave Harman to the management team to achieve sales initiatives in key markets. Dave joins Ferriot as Director of Sales and Marketing where he will oversee both Ferriot and its wholly owned subsidiary, American Original Building Products. Dave brings over 30 years’ experience in sales and sales management with Fortune 500 companies as well as small, family owned organizations. As a business owner, he fully understands a balance sheet and a P&L and how to make an operation run successfully. As a sales manager, he takes leadership and profitability seriously.
Already committed to a career in sales and sales management, Dave had developed a successful track record with experience in both the large corporate world as well as the small business arena with companies such as Conoco/Vista and Amresco. But it was Sandler’s systematic approach to selling and leadership that took his success to a different level. Learning and implementing the behaviors, attitudes, strategies and techniques available through Sandler’s model of on-going reinforcement training and coaching, Dave consistently, incrementally, and dramatically improved sales and profits.
After many years as a Sandler Training client, his passion for sales drove him to join the Sandler team to pursue his desire to help other sales and management teams grow in the areas of sales, leadership and professionalism. He is devoted to working with salespeople, sales managers, executives and business owners who are just as committed their own professional growth.
Craig Ferriot, President of Ferriot, Inc. said, “Dave brings a wealth of experience in the sales arena and with the increasing demand for exceptional support and service by our customers, his knowledge and leadership will provide the expertise that we are looking for as we continue to develop our sales team and grow our customer base.”
