Vanmark Adds Technical Sales Role
Industrial potato and produce processing equipment manufacturer Vanmark has welcomed Jack Grote in a newly created Technical Sales role. In this position, Grote will manage and grow relationships with Vanmark’s customers, dealers, and prospects.
Grote graduated from the Ohio State with a BS in Business Administration. He served as Staff Accountant and Senior Accountant at GBQ Partners, specializing in audits, and domestic and international tax. Prior to Vanmark, Grote spent the last six months working at Grote Company, developing a quoting solution and spearheading an aftermarket sales initiative.
Jack Grote is the son of Bob Grote, CEO of Grote Company and Vanmark. As such, he is the third generation of the Grote family to join the family-owned and operated business.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to have Jack join us. To take on a variety of roles at both businesses in a short period of time truly speaks to his eagerness to learn and ability to wear multiple hats – which are necessary in a medium-sized family business. I know he’ll be successful in this position as well,” said Bob Grote.
The newly created Technical Sales role is the first outside sales position at Vanmark and is designed to supplement the service provided to direct customers and dealers, in addition to developing market, sales, and product opportunities.
