Welcome Aleah & Chris!

Tooling U would like to extend a warm welcome to two new members of our team.

Aleah Kapusi is joining the Inside Sales team. Aleah will be qualifying incoming leads and working with Michelle and Katie to provide support to current customers. Aleah is a dedicated PTA mother and sports fan – if you have a question on Cleveland sports statistics or trivia, send her an e-mail.

Chris Petty will be joining the Outside Sales team, focusing on the western region of the United States. He will be focusing on Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. I would encourage you to send Chris a welcome e-mail – and when you do, ask him to explain to you why he has had over 300 stitches in his head!

Phew! IMTS 2008 is over! For those of you who missed the show, there’s simply no way to describe it. The best I can think of is 1.2 million square feet of robots, CNC machines, conveyer belts and salespeople! We were lucky enough to be located at the entrance to the North Hall, which provided the perfect opportunity to demonstrate our product to the entire show. I
got a chance to meet a lot of great people over the course of the week – and managed to get a few laughs when I showed them my personal Tooling U test scores.

I think the picture that best sums up IMTS, though, comes from Chris Pinner’s desk. Chris is one of Tooling U’s dedicated writers – and IMTS’ dedicated snatchers. Let’s face it, we all like free stuff. And as trade shows go, IMTS is a free stuff paradise. Chris? Well, he strives for excellence. I think you can tell from the picture below that he made his way around the entire show.

I suppose it’s a good thing that IMTS is every two years. These companies would go bankrupt if they had to supply Chris with new desk decorations every year. See you in 2010!
