Phillips Industries Adds New Territory Manager
Santa Fe Springs, CA (January 17, 2013) Phillips Industries has hired Scott Storie as a new Territory Sales Manager. Storie will cover Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas servicing the needs of current Phillips customers in those states as well as developing new opportunities within the territory.
Storie joins Phillips Industries from American Packing and Gaskets (APG), a Houston-based manufacturer of industrial products, where he held the position of Central Region Sales Manager. Prior to his position with APG, Storie was employed by Barnes Distribution for more than eleven years, most recently as Business Development Specialist. Barnes is an industry leader in the distribution of maintenance, repair, operating and production supplies and Storie’s experience there gives him a solid background for his new position with Phillips. He is a graduate of Park University, Parkville, MO with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management.
“The primary criteria we have when we hire new field sales people is that they have experience in the commercial vehicle industry because we believe we can take care of our customers better with that background” commented Randy Walker, Director Aftermarket Sales. “Scott’s time at Barnes, in particular, gives him industry knowledge that will benefit our customers as they'll speak the same language. We're glad he’s joined Phillips.”
