Stertil-Koni announced that seasoned industry pro, Jeff Sampson, has joined the company as Regional Sales Manager. Sampson, who brings more than two decades of capital equipment expertise to his new role, will cover a territory that includes the central United States. He succeeds Rawn Roman, who is retiring this year after more than a quarter century of top sales results with Stertil-Koni.

In making the announcement, Scott Steinhardt, Stertil-Koni General Manager, noted: “This is a bitter-sweet day for us.  On one hand, we will genuinely miss Rawn’s warmth and substantial business acumen.  At that same time, Stertil-Koni is delighted to welcome Jeff, who brings more than 20 years of heavy-duty vehicle lift expertise and success as a Regional Sales Manager to our rapidly growing company.  Jeff shares our keen focus on delivering the best in customer care and support and we know he will be an asset to our distributors, our customers, and our company in general.”

Prior to joining Stertil-Koni, Sampson served as a Regional Sales Manager at another lift company.  Sampson and his wife of 36 years have three daughters, two grandchildren, and nine grand pets. The Sampson’s enjoy traveling, listening to live music, and spending time with family and friends. Concluded Stertil-Koni president, Dr. Jean DellAmore, “At this time, I would like to heartily thank Rawn Roman for his ongoing, consistent, and significant contributions to our collective success.  He has been an outstanding Regional Sales Manager, a trusted colleague, and is always a true gentleman.”
