and repair. In 1990, he began his sales experience with IPSCO, an
irrigation company/engine distributor, which also manufactured

his initial sales focus was generators, Perkins engines and parts
sales to a variety of industries. Later he became solely responsible
for selling specialized prime power generators to the Intermodal
industry. In 2003 he became responsible for generator sales for a
