YKK AP America Expands Southwest Sales Team with the Addition of Architectural Sales Representatives
Growing sales presence and alignment of territories demonstrates commitment to better serving customers in the region
AUSTELL, Ga. (Aug. 19, 2019) – YKK AP America Inc. today announced the expansion of its Southwest region with the appointment of two new Architectural Sales Representatives. Bill Hickman and Kim Kloss will now support the company’s customers in the region and strengthen YKK AP’s local service to the market. Both will be based out of the Dallas branch.
Kloss joins the company with significant experience in the contract glazing industry and a proven ability to build lasting business relationships, resulting in a stronger, more engaged customer base.
Hickman comes to YKK AP America with a strong background in sales and operations. He brings a wide range of expertise in estimating, product knowledge, business development as well as a strong track record of success in driving sales results.
Along with the expansion of its sales team, YKK AP has also focused the Southwest sales territory to allow its architectural sales representatives to more efficiently serve customers. Jesse Baker will continue to service Kansas City, St. Louis and surrounding areas, Kloss will service Dallas/Ft. Worth and surrounding areas and Hickman will lead the charge in the greater Oklahoma City, Texarkana, and Arkansas territories. This will enable YKK AP’s sales representatives to provide a more hands-on approach to reviewing projects and helping its customers succeed.
“We are excited about the expansion of our sales team and the enhanced focus of the Southwest territory to best serve our growing customer base,” said Joey Bernard, General Manager for the YKK AP Western Region. “Both Bill and Kim bring years of industry experience and regional knowledge. We’re extremely confident in their abilities and look forward to building and enhancing our business relationships in and around Oklahoma City and Dallas/Fort Worth through their efforts.”
