Meet Mike Landrum – Product Support Sales Representative – Baton Rouge, LA
Where is your hometown? Baton Rouge, LA (laissez le bon temps rouler) *let the good times roll*
Do you have family? Kids? My wife, Kelli of 29 years and sons Chandler and Parker.
What does your typical day at work look like? Our territory consists of 10 Louisiana parishes (counties) that I travel covering customers and prospects. I normally like to start work early in the mornings when there is less traffic on the roads and usually will have at least one customer calling needing help before 7:00 A.M. I accept customer calls anytime of the day either very early in the mornings or late in the evenings. Depending on the area within the territory I am covering that day, I will normally start by visiting existing customers early and then cold calling later in the morning and after lunch. In the late afternoons, I am calling on customers and following up on outstanding quotes and preparing new quotes.
Daily job duties? Developing new customers, growing business with existing customers, service and parts quoting, helping customers make sound financial decisions and teaching equipment operator training.
How long have you been with the company? I came over from the transition with Scott Equipment, so total time of 7 years.
What is your favorite thing about your job? Meeting new people and developing new business opportunities. I really enjoy listening to customers and prospects to identify their problems and needs so Hugg & Hall can provide a successful solution building a mutually beneficial long-term relationship. Solving customer’s problems is very gratifying to me and at the same time, helping someone else clear their obstacles.
Do you have a favorite memory while working at Hugg & Hall? Learning that our branch was moving to a new location soon.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Traveling with family and friends to interesting places across the country.
What are your passions? Saltwater fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, hunting and cooking.
What is something that the people you work with might be surprised to know about you? I participated in competition water skiing and began barefoot skiing when I was just 13.
