SHELBY, N.C. (PRWEB) October 31, 2016
HURST Jaws of Life, Inc., an industry leading global manufacturer of rescue tools, has added Anthony Morabito as northeast regional sales manager. A volunteer firefighter for more than 20 years, Morabito’s experience ranges from end-user expertise to almost 12 years as a HURST dealer.
“Anthony is the best of both worlds,” said Mike Canon, director of rescue sales for HURST Jaws of Life, Inc. “He has extensive experience not only in the field, but also at the dealer level. It’s this unique combination of fire service, sales and repair that makes him an invaluable member of our sales team. We look forward to learning a lot from him.”
Morabito comes to HURST from Firematic, where he worked as a dealer specializing in repairs, teaching HURST tool classes, airbag classes and bailout system training. He also served as a terminal manager for an armored car company for 13 years. As a volunteer firefighter, Morabito held every rank from second lieutenant to chief as well as numerous certifications, and was nationally certified as a level 2 fire service instructor.
Morabito is most proud of his HURST Green Cross program patch, which he received in recognition of an early morning extrication of three teenagers; he was an assistant fire chief at the time.
