Randall will be responsible for driving Orbit Industries’ sales strategies, accelerating market growth, and identifying market trends. He will also support the region with training, marketing and promotional programs.
The new hiring comes as Orbit Industries, Inc. experiences a “growth spurt” – with the establishment of an East coast distribution center (DC) in Tennessee in 2017; and moving its West coast DC operations to larger facilities in Bell Gardens, California. Mr. Robberts was hired to increase Orbit’s presence and response time in the state of Texas.
“We are thrilled to have Randall on board, as Texas is home to some of our most loyal and long-standing wholesale partners.” said Orbit Industries’ President David Nikayin. “While we have a competent Regional Sales Manager and manufacturer’s representative assigned to that territory, I knew we needed a stronger factory presence, with a sales person who could immediately respond to new opportunities.”
“Randall comes to us with a deep understanding of the Gulf Coast’s biggest market sectors,” said Jason Sodaro, Orbit’s Texas Regional Sales Manager. “I could tell right away Mr. Robberts is a master at using all available resources to make things happen, ensuring the success of our distributors and contractors. We’re really fortunate to have his strategic market development, product line positioning, and sales experience.”
Robberts served Texas’ Oil & Gas and logistics industries for more than five years. Prior to Orbit, Randall worked as Commercial Tire Sales Manager for Meineke Fleet Services. At Meineke, Randall dispatched mobile mechanics to service cranes, earth movers, backhoes, and forklifts for refinery and chemical plant customers. While attending University of Houston-Clear Lake, he worked part-time for a general contractor, maintaining service truck inventory and performing simple electrical installations.
