Pioneer Eclipse, a leading manufacturer of floor care and cleaning solutions, announced today that it has aligned its sales teams to better meet growing customer demand. Pat Marshall has been selected to lead the US Professional Sales Team, while Tom Jarvis has been selected to lead the US Rental Sales Team; both of which will include the Janitorial (JanSan) division and American Sanders division of the Company. The announcement was made by Tom Benton, President and CEO of Amano Pioneer Eclipse Corporation.
Pioneer Eclipse acquired Clarke American Sanders from Nilfisk-Advance in March of 2014. The acquisition gives Pioneer Eclipse the market leading position in the wood floor care industry and strengthens its core floor care technology business.
Pat joined Pioneer Eclipse in 2011 as Executive Director of Domestic Sales and has played a key role in driving strong customer growth and revenue performance in the US. Pat will continue to lead the sales efforts of Pioneer Eclipse as he assumes the role leading pro sander sales for American Sanders.
Tom Jarvis, Executive Director of Sander Sales will direct all sales efforts associated with both National and Independent Rental channels for Pioneer Eclipse and American Sanders. Tom was with Clarke American Sanders for seven years prior to the acquisition by Pioneer Eclipse and has deep industry experience in the rental market.
“Both Pat and Tom have made significant contributions to the growth of the Company. By aligning sales management responsibilities with specific sales channels, we will be able to better serve the needs of our growing customer base,” explained Tom Benton. “Pat and Tom’s leadership expertise will be a great asset to our sales teams and their expanded roles will foster an integration of solutions within the company, strengthening our core product offerings.”
