Sprouse Realigns Sales Team
Sprouse Windows & Doors Inc., a manufacturer of vinyl windows and patio doors based in New Martinsville, W.Va., has added Ken Barman to its sales team, creating a dual focus sales and customer service initiative. Barman leads the Sprouse Western division as VP of sales and marketing, while Al Simeone spearheads the Eastern division as VP of sales and marketing.
“Despite the economy, we’ve continued to have great success in the past few years, due in part to the unique company attitude of 'partnering' with our dealers, the quality of products we produce and our dedicated customer service teams," says Jeff Sprouse, president. "And to help us serve our customers even more, we have realigned the company footprint into two divisions, an East division and a West division, to allow each to concentrate on even greater relationship building, growth areas and marketing requirements within specific geographic regions.”
“With this new direction Sprouse is taking, we are aligning ourselves even closer with our customers and focusing on what is necessary to make Sprouse a long-term successful window and door manufacturer,” says Simeone, who has served the window maker as VP of sales and marketing for more than four years and has more than 27 years of experience in the fenestration industry.
Barman brings 30 years of fenestration industry experience to his new position, most recently serving as director of sales and marketing for ViWinTech Windows & Doors. His focus at Sprouse will be on developing new territories, new product development and increasing brand awareness. “Ken brings a very unique background to us, and we are excited to see the impact he will have as he leads the Sprouse western division,” Sprouse states.
“I am excited to be joining such an outstanding team," says Barman. "Not only does Sprouse manufacture great quality products, but they also seem to truly understand the type of service that is required to solidify them as a leading, national manufacturer.”
Manufacturing vinyl windows and patio door products for more than 21 years, Sprouse currently services customers in 14 states.
