    Outside Sales, Senior Account Manager, Nemko San Diego

    My main job goal is to develop and grow new business opportunities with current customers and new prospects.

    I’ve learned within my position, that with any challenge, there is the ability to turn those challenges into opportunities. This means facing challenges head-on and being forthright and honest with my customers and prospects. If this rule is followed, even the most challenging of situations, can be turned into an opportunity to showcase Nemko’s vision; Making the world a safer place -- therefore, garnering trust -- and the opportunity to grow that trust, long term. Being an employee with Nemko for 21 years, I’ve had the opportunity to see our company grow - and in addition, see tremendous growth and change in technology across all business sectors. The most rewarding aspect of my role at Nemko are the friendships I’ve fostered with my co-workers and customers alike. Being able to make a positive difference in someone’s life is pivotal for me. When I’m not working, I like to exercise, play golf, read, listen to music, and spend quality time with my family and friends.
