Eric has a degree in Retail Marketing and Merchandising with 20+ years of experience. He has a good eye for the aesthetics of a retail set and is skilled at analyzing market trends for optimum sales results. Eric works exclusively with specialty projects and small market niches that are often overlooked in standard “repping” organizations. Eric covers all of our “retail” oriented lines in the entire territory, allowing the other salesmen to focus their time and efforts on a smaller set of customers. One of the specialty niches Eric gives detailed attention to would be all of our smaller or rural OES dealers. Eric has worked these specialty accounts with Mid-States for ten years.
