Posted by Krista Lessard on Mon, Jun 22, 2015 @ 07:16 AM


"A Change is as Good as a Rest."

Short job description including big projects or accomplishments:

As a Sales Leader at Tecmark, I get to initiate conversations with prospective customers on the phone, on the road, and at trade shows and other events. When there's a good fit for both sides, I take them through the process of becoming a Tecmark customer and introduce them to the rest of our team for fantastic service and support. I really enjoy all of these interactions, but so far my favorite experiences have been acquiring our accounts with Pinnacle Energy & Agronomy and the Fort Mojave Tribe. Both of these clients represent great examples of what we do.  

What motivates you?:

I'm motivated when I see that my contributions make a real difference for the people around me. Sales growth creates positive change and new opportunities for everyone. 

Favorite quote or motto?:

"A change is as good as a rest." My grandmother who lived through the great depression used to say this. She never quit!

Best advice anyone has ever given you?:

Don't ever make life decisions out of fear. 

Your life would be meaningless without….

My wife and three kids - ages 2, 4, and 6.  We all strive to make a mark on the world in some way but I can't think of anything more significant than what we do for our families.  

Craziest thing you have ever done?:

Skydiving from 13,000 feet at Kapowsin - the scariest part was standing at the edge and waiting for the command to go. The rest was awesome!

What TV show has you hooked?

Vikings, hands down!

What food can you simply not resist?

Good grass fed beef grilled in the back yard.

Do you have any pets?:

We have a freakishly big chocolate lab that is sometimes mistaken for a bear.

What is a hobby/talent you have that most people might not know about?:

I can still do back flips and spins on my snowboard, just like we did at Crystal Mountain back in high school.

Who would you most like to meet and why?

Elon Musk - He dreams big, goes "all in", and makes big things happen!

What are you most afraid of?

Losing my kids at the mall.  It can happen fast when they all bolt in different directions at the same time!

One short term goal:

I'm a little more than half way through my 12 week training cycle at the gym.

One long term goal:

We're working towards our first multifamily property deal.

Favorite loyalty program:

My Starbucks Rewards - It's easy to get rewards and it's actually stuff that I like. The free refills on drip coffee and iced tea are a nice perk if you use Starbucks as an office location while traveling for business.
