Allied is proud to announce the hire of five new sales representatives: Don Houck, Kyle Bechter, Ruthann Simpson, Buck Nicolai, and Bill Stecchi. Three will join Allied’s Pennsylvania headquarters; one, the New Hampshire office; and one, the Nevada location.
Both Don Houck and Kyle Bechter have solid foundations in the wire and cable industry. Houck, the newest addition to the Las Vegas branch, has over 17 years of experience in the voice, data, and security market. He has worked with contractors, end-users, and distributors, and has a comprehensive understanding of the needs of each group. Houck’s recent positions include Sales Manager at JCH Wire and Cable, Core Commercial Account Manager at ADT, and Low Voltage Sales Manager at Codale Electric Supply. Although he specializes in voice, data, and security cable, he has taught training courses on the identification, construction, and usage of all types of wire and cable.
“I embody the motto ‘teamwork makes the dream work’ in all aspects of my life,” Houck says,“At Allied I have experienced a truly familial atmosphere where everyone has a single focus and goal; create long lasting customer relationships through extraordinary customer service. The willingness and effort of everyone to assist each other in achieving this goal is a main reason I joined the team.”
Kyle Bechter has spent over two years in the wire and cable industry at Omni Wire & Cable. He graduated West Chester University in 2009 with a degree in Business Management, and began working in sales soon after. Of his move to Allied, he says. “I am extremely excited to work with such a successful and driven team where humility is the core value.” Bechter will join Allied’s headquarters in Collegeville, PA with Buck Nicolai and Ruthann Simpson.
Nicolai comes from a family with a history in wire and cable, and he looks forward to joining the industry himself. He is a 2010 graduate of Temple University where he studied broadcasting and telecommunications. Nicolai most recently worked as a recording engineer at Sine Studios, so he will be able to provide a wealth of knowledge to customers looking for broadcast and multimedia cable.
Ruthann Simpson has over seven years of sales experience at Remcon Plastics. While at Remcon, she handled all of their proprietary products, in addition to working with independent sales reps, trade shows, and customer service.
In New Hampshire, recent graduate, Bill Stecchi joins the team. Of his new career path, he says,“While I am new to the wire and cable industry, I look forward to building a wealth of knowledge and new relationships. My goal is to provide excellent customer service in a timely manner.”
Allied is excited to count these five new representatives as part of the family, and looks forward to benefitting from the specialized expertise of experienced reps, and the fresh perspectives and enthusiasm of those new to the industry.
