Seco Tools Promotes Eastern Zone Manager
David Sonner has many years of industry sales experience following on his experience as a machinist.
Seco Tools has promoted David Sonner to Eastern Zone Manager. His responsibilities as the Eastern Zone Manger include leading and coaching regional sales managers, using sales and marketing analytics for staffing and territory alignment, and maximizing engagement and sales with channel partners.
“Dave has a strong background in sales leadership prior to Seco and has demonstrated his ability to deliver results, drive change and challenge the status quo over the past two years as manager of the mid-Atlantic region,” says Rob Keenan, President.
Mr. Sonner’s background as a journeyman machinist led him to 12 years of technical field sales experience, 10 years in industrial distribution, two years as an operations manager of a mid-size shop, and two and a half years as a vice president of sales at a large job shop.
