Meet Brent Cassil, Coated and Bonded Abrasive Manager for SurfacePrep
Brent joined SurfacePrep in 2015 after working as a regional sales manager for a coated abrasives manufacturer.
“I enjoy working with a vast end user base of customers ranging from high tech medical and aerospace to more simplified wood working applications and general metal fabrication,” Brent said. Working closely with SurfacePrep’s sales representatives allows Brent an in-depth look to see how products are manufactured. “Every market is different, and we are allowed to tailor a product offering to support the end user and assist them in improving their processes.”
“Brent has been instrumental with the growth of coated abrasives at SurfacePrep. He has put together a great team of product specialists focusing on providing our customers with solutions for their coated and bonded requirements. Brent’s efforts in building relationships with vendors and customers while keeping our team informed and educated, have resulted in continuous growth in sales for coated and bonded products. We are proud of the fact that he is a key part of our team.” said Bob Hancock, VP Surface Enhancement.
Brent supports both the sales team and his own team of regional coated and bonded product specialists. He enjoys assisting the sales team in growing their relationships with their existing accounts and helping them become more diversified in their sales portfolio.
“Brent has been a tremendous help to our guys in the Northeast building our coated and bonded business. He knows that we are not the most experienced sales force in coated, so he goes the extra mile to help out. That alone has gotten our guys excited about finding new coated projects. Brent stays on top of projects and works with our sales team, and customers hand in hand,” said Augie Arndt, General Manager of Stratus Division.
When Brent isn’t finding the best products for our customers, he finds a lot to do. He has two younger children who are active in baseball and rock climbing, so they keep him very busy. He also has a passion for craft coffee and is working on learning how to roast his own coffee.
