Jeske Hardware Distributors has added Nick Nelson, of Aylett, Virginia, to its sales team as the account manager for the company’s mid-Atlantic sales territory.

“Along with his sales experience, Nick’s enthusiasm for meeting customers and building strong relationships makes him a great asset to our team,” said Ray Powell, national sales manager for Jeske.

As an account manager, said the company, Nelson will be responsible for servicing accounts and developing relationships with customers in North Carolina, Virginia, Delaware, Maryland and the northeast tip of Tennessee.

“I’m excited to get out and meet as many customers and contacts as possible, especially early on. I look forward to building strong relationships with customers and sharing about our product offerings as I work to grow this territory and make it my own,” said Nelson.

Prior to joining the team, Nelson worked as a territory manager for Illinois Tool Works.

Founded in 1962, Jeske, based in Appleton, Wisconsin, sells residential and commercial door locks and hardware to lumberyards, millworks, hardware showrooms and other retailers.

“At Jeske, we’re always striving to be more than just another distributor for our customers – we want to provide creative solutions and outstanding support,” said Powell.
