Sold commercial and industrial roofing projects for R.E. Burke Roofing Co. located in Skokie, IL. In addition to bidding public work and managing the projects, I also called on many of our accounts and worked with them to prepare specifications to solve their unique roofing needs and design a roof system right for building.
I started with Roofing Systems, Inc. after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business from Western Illinois University. I became sales manager and oversaw sales, production, and material purchasing. In addition, I also called on many of our major clients such as Barber Colman Co., Sunstrand Aviation, Swedish American Hospital, and the RReef Funds management firm. We prepared specifications for re-roofing and repairs of their buildings and plants and helped them plan what their roofing budgets would need to be for the future.
