As we move into the New Year, Fahey Machinery Company Inc. continues to grow its sales team to better meet the need of our existing customers while expanding our customer base. The newest addition to Fahey’s sales team is Landon Banks. Landon began his career with Fahey Machinery Company as a Machine Sales Coordinator affording him insight into the entire sales order process through delivery and sign off by our customer. His interest in sales and passion for our product made this move a natural next step in his career. Landon’s sales territory covers Eastern Washington, the Idaho Panhandle, and Montana Landon is no stranger to the industry being the son of our Sales Manager, Doug Banks. Doug and our President TJ Hatfield have mentored Landon and will continue to be a valuable resource as he tackles his new position. An Oregon native Landon currently resides in the Portland metro area, but is planning to relocate to Spokane, Washington which is centrally located in his sales territory. Recently, Landon and his wife welcomed their first child into the world, a beautiful healthy baby girl. Landon hopes she will grow to have the same love and passion for his alma mater Oregon State University, translated; the Oregon Ducks, not to forget his other love, golf. Golf being Landon’s first career choice where his hard work landed him a professional ranking. He enjoyed the game and competition for several years before taking a different career path and joining the Fahey team. Landon describes the favorite part of his new job as meeting both potential and existing clients and learning about their business. He has an extreme fascination with the manufacturing process from raw material to finished product and how each customer navigates the challenges associated with same. This curiosity and insight allow him to focus in on existing and future needs of his client. Lastly, a quote to live by according to Landon is, “Never give up! Failure and rejection are only the first steps of succeeding.” From all of us at Fahey Machinery Company Inc., we wish everyone great success in 2018!
