Matthew L. K.
I have a twenty five year career in the flooring and construction related industry. Most of my experience is in territory management and architectural & contractor sales. My success in growing business with Architects, Facility Managers, Contractors and a variety of business professionals comes from the pride I take in my professionalism and the ability to satisfy my clients needs fully. I am fearless in prospecting for new business and have a proven track record of rapid growth in every territory I have managed.
I am currently employed by GrindAll Concrete / National Polishing Systems as a National Sales Rep. I prospect for General Contractors, Construction Managers, Flooring Contractors, and Housing Authority officials for the purpose of bidding and closing contracts utilizing GrindAll&;s expertise in surface demolition, concrete grinding and polishing. I combine my phone and internet skills with my expertise in outside sales to achieve my results. I also estimate and prepare quotes for my clients. I am looking to make a career change to a larger, more stable company that I can best utilize my talents with.
