Sumner, Wash.-based supplier Torklift International announced the hiring of Randy Fisher in the newly created position of national sales manager.
Fisher is a veteran to the recreational vehicle industry. He’s worked as the sales and finance manager at Southside RV in Tacoma, Wash., where he exceeded sales quotas by 40%, which translated to $400,000 in net profit for the dealership and improved closing ratios by 50%. Fisher was also the finance and marketing manager at Holiday Motorhomes and was a general sales manager for Family Fun RV in Fife, Wash., for several years.
During his career he’s reached several milestones including ranking among the top 10% in national sales, ranking third among 60 sales reps while employed at Pitney Bowes and consistently added new accounts and exceeded sales quotas by more than 100%.
“I have over 18 years of sales, management and marketing experience with inside and outside sales,” Fisher said in a press release. “Something I am very proud of is my ability to maintain and build strong sales teams and business relationships to meet and exceed goals. My focus is to help the team in any way I can.”
Fisher’s goals for 2013 include challenging Torklift International sales reps to continue growth on a daily basis and work toward driving sales. He’s working toward taking his current RV industry familiarity with the Torklift International products to become an expert on the entire product line and building profitable relationships with distributors, dealers and sales reps.
His educational background includes a communication degree from Purdue University and an MBA from the University of Phoenix.
