Aacer Flooring Vice President of Sports Kevin Barker announced today the appointment of Kit Burkholder as Northeastern Regional Manager for Sports. Burkholder, a former Architectural Representative for W.R. Grace, will be responsible for the continued development of the Northeastern region sports division for Aacer Flooring. Burkholder will be devoting much of his time working to develop the dealer base, architectural relationships and educating the end users on the entire sports product line.
"It's unusual to find someone who combines construction industry experience with architectural service expertise," said Barker. "We're pleased to have found that combination in Kit, plus he is a very accomplished athlete which allows for a unique perspective in the sales process of high performance athletic surfaces."
Barker added: "I'm happy to have someone join our team that will help us expand our capabilities throughout the Aacer network. Burkholder's appointment represents yet another corporate investment in the continued development of our approach to deliver the best products and service in our industry."
Burkholder brings seven years experience in selling building materials, and more than two years in commercial construction and architectural consulting. At W.R. Grace, he became a devout member of CSI (Construction Specifications Institute) and assisted the AIA (American Institute of Architects) by providing multiple presentations for architects in search of continuing education units. In that role, Burkholder managed an extensive product portfolio helping architects choose the best life safety systems for their most important projects.
Burkholder is a two-time graduate of Wake Forest University, with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2000 and a Masters of Business Administration in 2008. A two-sport athlete in football and track, he earned his letter in football for the 1999 Aloha Bowl champion Demon Deacon Football team.
Burkholder will be relocating to his new territory before the close of 2009. He is engaged to be married this July.
