Before joining Bender, Jeff worked in the electrical protection relay market with various manufacturers since 1995. His roles have included sales engineer, U.S. sales engineering manager, vertical market manager for fuses and relays, and product manager. His primary responsibility has been sales development and support in the U.S. market, but secondarily he has assisted in business development in South America and Canada.
In 2016, Jeff was hired to help Bender develop and expand the neutral grounding resistor market in the Americas Region. The first project he was involved with was the product launch of the NGRM700 relay in 2017. He has helped develop marketing materials, webinars, technical white papers, and many blogs. Jeff says, "I enjoy helping customers solve unique application challenges and becoming a resource for them." He also takes support calls from customers from his pre-Bender days and loves to talk them through the transition to Bender's yellow boxes.
Jeff enjoys working for a family-owned business with long-term goals and global reach. Even with the numerous challenges over the past six years, he believes we continue to grow as a company in competency and will gain customer loyalty for years to come.
When Jeff is not traveling, he enjoys spending time with my two boys, Drew and Brody. In the summer, Jeff enjoys golfing and long Saskatchewan summer days. In the winter, he enjoys volleyball, snowmobiling, and bonfires.
