Engineered Products Company (EPCO) (Minneapolis): The supplier of specialty lighting and wiring consumable products for electrical contractors recently announced that Ryan Montgomery has joined the company as its new western regional sales manager. Based in Colorado, Montgomery will be responsible for growing and managing sales, as well as new product sales training for nine sales representative agencies serving 10 states in the western region of the United States.
Prior to joining EPCO, Montgomery was director of sales for Rocky Mountain Lighting, where he was responsible for managing new account sales in a 10-state region. During his tenure, Montgomery grew sales by working with architects and designers, successfully placing products in commercial, multi-family, education and hazardous industrial locations.
Additional experience includes account management and sales positions at LEDVANCE and Voss Lighting. As a regional sales manager at Ledvance, Montgomery grew his territory and experienced year-over-year sales growth doubling revenue during his tenure. At Voss Lighting, Montgomery revived a struggling territory exceeding yearly quota goals by aggressively prospecting and managing customer needs and expectations.
“Ryan is an expert in setting and exceeding expectations,” said President Jim Anderson in the release. “As we look towards continuing our market and product expansion in the western region, Ryan brings mindshare and a passion for the industry that really complements our corporate culture.
