Years: 16 + 2
Personal Data: Joe qualifies as the Territory Manager with the most titles here at OHARCO including “old-timer”, “newbie” and “coach”. He earned the titles of “old-timer” and “newbie” due to his 15 previous years with OHARCO, short break and then his return over a year ago. Joe’s title as “coach” comes both from his personal and professional interests…around here, Joe is one of the “go-to” guys who can offer detailed information about products; and in his personal life has coached his son’s basketball and baseball teams. When he has spare time Joe watches a lot of high school and college sporting events and spends time with his family.
