Thank you for tuning into my podcast, “Snack Sized Sales,” where I focus on sharing three actionable tips on one topic that you can use to transform your sales. Today, my guest is David Presley, the President of Hydro-Chem Systems (HCS), a comprehensive washing solutions provider. Within the 24 years that he’s been with HCS, he has overseen the development of the automated division and is responsible for the overall design of an automated wash system.
David will talk to us about the value of a salesperson getting hands-on experience in different areas of their preferred industry, why an educational approach to sales is very effective, and what it takes to build a strong sales team. His degree in electrical/electronic engineering and his technical background have instilled a quality-driven work ethic. His business management skills combined with his technical abilities have piloted HCS to the highest sales in the company’s 48-year history. David is very hands-on providing exceptional customer service.
