Do it Best Corp. has named three of its senior sales and business development leaders to new roles as it strengthens the team to drive additional sales for its member-owners.
Effective immediately, Rob Schmiedel serves as the company’s sales operations manager, Greg Fuller is the national sales manager and John Wade is the strategic account manager.
“As we continue to position Do it Best as the industry’s first and best choice for independent home improvement, I’m pleased to be able to pull from such a deep bench of sales experts,” says Nick Talarico, vice president of sales and business development for Do it Best.
As the sales operations manager, Schmiedel now oversees the development of new technology, tools and training to better equip the sales team to enable and maximize growth opportunities.
Wade advances into the role of strategic account manager, where he is charged with exploring and developing strategic growth opportunities for members.
Fuller, an industry veteran and former Do it Best member-owner, transitions from his role as regional into the national sales manager position. In this position, he leads a team of retail sales-driven experts committed to growing members’ businesses.
“Our entire team is better aligned today to lead with excellence as we help our members grow their businesses,” says Talarico. “We’re in an even stronger position to bring on new members, gain a higher share of every members’ product purchases and provide them all with a clearer direction for better retail execution than ever before.”
