New hires bring team into “peak form,” according to company executives.
Arkon Power has continued to grow its sales and operations team, adding John Johnson as a new sales representative and Richard Elzey as a contractor.
Johnson has been in sales for nearly a decade and has handled products from textbooks to collegiate apparel and accessories. He spent five years as a pharmaceutical sales rep for Pfizer before moving into the LED space about two years ago.
“I’m very familiar with the lighting sales cycle,” Johnson said. “Because it’s a slightly longer cycle, it’s all about establishing a good relationship, and you really have to listen to the customer. I think that’s true in every business, but especially in lighting sales.”
As Arkon continues to increase its market penetration, Johnson sees great potential to grow the company’s name recognition and increase sales numbers.
“The great thing is LEDs have now been around long enough that people have studied up on them and have good information,” he said. “You’re speaking with people that already know LEDs are the best route for their company.”
Elzey has 25 years of contracting experience, both in the field and as senior instructor for the Florida-based Contractors Institute. He teaches examination preparation and continuing education classes around the state and holds a certified general contractors license and various specialized licenses. Arkon Director of Business Development Eleni Lelekis said he’s added considerably to the company’s capabilities.
“Richard has been an invaluable addition to the team,” she said. “He offers an attention to detail that I know our customers are going to appreciate.”
Lelekis said Elzey and Johnson have shown initiative since joining the team and are poised to help build Arkon’s hard earned reputation as a leader in lighting solutions.
“Our sales and operations teams are now in peak form,” Lelekis said. “We look forward to seeing these new relationships grow with time.”
