Reynolds Machinery is pleased to welcome Jameson Hartke to our team of passionate and knowledgeable sales professionals.
At Reynolds, sales means more than representing our quality lines of builders and machinery. We build our sales department on a foundation of relationships, through which we are dedicated to working with and advising manufacturers in choosing the right machinery to grow their businesses and streamline operations.
Jameson is a great addition to the team, because he is curious and passionate about listening, which he says is key to a successful relationship with customers, no matter what the industry or role. At Reynolds Machinery, he will use those skills to work with customers to keep them ahead of trends in manufacturing.
“We truly put the customer first and that guides our decision making internally,” Jameson said. “People like to talk about this, but it’s rarely accomplished. Reynolds is one of the few to actually execute on this belief.”
Jameson said one way in which this is evident is through the company structure.
“Our ratio of field technicians to sales is 3:1. We place three times the emphasis on servicing and keeping our customers happy than we do on new sales. Our success can only follow the success of our customers.”
It’s an exciting time to be helping manufacturers, Jameson added. With trends in manufacturing and cutting-edge automation technology, the decisions manufacturers make today can heavily impact their success moving forward.
“Many of our customers are struggling with manpower and being fully staffed. Robotics and horizontal machining centers that can run lights out are a few ways customers are making money from their machines while an operator is not present.”
Jameson has a bachelor’s degree in finance from Ohio University, where he played football and led the team as a captain from 2008-2009. He later went on to earn his MBA from University of Dayton.
When he isn’t working, Jameson enjoys golf and landscaping, as well as playing outside, visiting local parks and “playing every outdoor sport imaginable” with his family, including his wife of 10 years, Stephanie and two young daughters, Ashton (6) and Avalee (4).
