Meet the Team that’s Helping Companies Operate Better.
Safety Sales Team Members in Indiana
John is from Newburgh, IN and has a degree in business from Oakland City University in Oakland City, Indiana. He served 6 ½ years (2000-2006) in the United States Army and retired due to injuries sustained in Iraq. He has been in the industry for over 15 years and is approaching his first year with Martin.
When asked how he helps companies operate better, John said, “I try to differentiate myself from an everyday salesperson. I want to be a true partner for my Customers by identifying ways I can help them save time, space and money.” John is always striving to be better and was awarded the Annual Achievers Top 1% Award three years in a row (2012 – 2014) from a previous employer.
When not at work, John enjoys body building and spending time with his wife and two daughters.
Safety Sales Manager

“I help companies operate better by listening intently to my Customers’ needs and finding customized solutions to solve their safety issues and concerns,” says Zac. “Developing meaningful relationships with my Customers and helping them and their associates get home to their families safely every night brings great satisfaction.”
Zac has been married to his wife, Katie, for 15 years and they have two sons and two daughters.
