I am confident that Kurt’s expertise and knowledge will provide us with unprecedented leadership and value. His work ethic, drive and energy will help us continue our success.
Tiffin, OH (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
Webster Industries Inc., a leader in conveyor chain manufacturing, has selected Kurt Robinson as Director Strategic Account Development.
“Kurt comes to us with extensive experience in the cement industry,” said Dean Bogner, Webster Vice President Sales & Marketing. “He brings excellent product and industry knowledge.
“I am confident that Kurt’s expertise and knowledge will provide us with unprecedented leadership and value,” Bogner said. “His work ethic, drive and energy will help us continue our success.”
Before joining the Ohio-based conveyor chain manufacturer, Robinson was employed for more than seven years by Rexnord Industries and five years as a product specialist.
As Director Strategic Account Development, he will be responsible for obtaining target business accounts across Webster’s market channels: OEM, distributor and end user. Robinson will work closely with corporate and territory-level colleagues in developing and monitoring the company’s target account program and will assist with and lead training for major customers.
Robinson said the opportunity to work with Webster was intriguing on several levels.
“Webster has a very, very strong reputation in a lot of the industries I’ve worked with. We’re well known as a quality, USA manufacturer,” he said. “I like the fact that we don’t farm out a lot of the work. We do almost everything under one roof ourselves. In today’s day and age, you don’t see that very often.”
The conveyor chain manufacturer’s relatively small size compared to some competitors also makes his new position interesting. “We’re smarter, more nimble, more able to react quickly than larger companies,” Robinson said. “Growing Webster and taking market share from the competitors is one of the most intriguing challenges in this. We’re well known but still have market share to gain in certain industries.”
Webster’s size also provides another, unexpected bonus, said Robinson, who was one of 5,500+ employees at his previous employer. “This is more of a family atmosphere. It’s very unique. Everyone at Webster has a common goal; everyone seems to be on the same page.”
