The Professional Beauty and Barber industry has been my home since I began working behind the chair a few decades ago.
That experience was invaluable, it provided insights into the thinking of the retail customer.
My employment as a Distributor Salesperson took me to another level. Working with Bob Peel (Sr), which provided a one-of-a-kind education in working with salons and barber shops, I covered the territory in western Kansas.
These experiences were key, but I was drawn to yet another level, a Manufacturers Representative. Here I worked with Ray Perlman, Harlan Kirschner, and, eventually partnered with Bob Jones to form the repping firm of Rogers & Jones until the firm was sold.
As a member of the team at VNC Sales and Marketing Company I have been able to continue relationships that I have had for years. It has been rewarding to see how many of my customers, and manufacturers as well, have grown.
With my experiences I’ve learned the importance of “customer service”. This is the area I strive to be perfect in (still working at it).
I’m married to Kelly, have two children and two grandchildren. I enjoy watching football and I love playing golf. Even though I’m a terrible golfer, I can’t quit because it’s the only thing I’m good at!
