Memphis Wood Fire Grills Welcomes New Rep
Tuesday, August 21, 2018
Memphis Wood Fire Grills is happy to announce a new addition to the Memphis team. The world’s leading manufacturer of high-end wood pellet grills has hired a new sales representative for the Southwest territory, but he’s no stranger to Memphis Grills.
Ken Gardner started at Memphis in the Fall of 2014 as the Business Development manager. In the summer of 2017, Ken and his wife Diane decided to move from Minnesota to a warmer climate, and Ken took a position as general manager of a large retail operation in Texas. A year later he and his wife decided to join their son in Phoenix and return to Memphis Grills in the position of Southwest Sales representative.
“We are all very excited to have Ken back on the Memphis team,” says Sharla Wagy, Memphis general manager. “We were disappointed when he left, but understood his reasons for leaving. We were very excited to hear of Ken’s interest in coming back at a time when we needed more focus in the Southwest area of the country. Ken is an outstanding salesperson, and we feel fortunate to have him back on the Memphis team.”
Ken says, “I’m very excited to rejoin the talented team at Memphis Grills and I’m looking forward to partnering with our exceptional dealer network in the Southwest.”
Ken will be covering the states of California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico, and will report to National Sales manager Scott Severson.
