Guardair adds two to sales team

Guardair Corporation, a manufacturer of industrial MRO products, named Reid Ellis strategic territory manager, and named Kurt Nussle strategic accounts sales.

The pair is responsible for growing top-line revenue and building relationships with Guardair’s distributors, resellers, and end-users.

With more than 15 years of professional sales experience—including six years in sales management—Reid Ellis most recently won three Presidents Club awards while working at Cintas Corporation. Ellis’ responsibilities included leading a sales team of eight people over six states. While in that position, he earned the highest distinction as a Diamond Level (Top 5%) manager. In his role with Guardair, Ellis covers the Northeast and most of the Eastern Seaboard.

Kurt Nussle brings more than 13 years of sales experience, including six years of national account business development. He won two Presidents Club awards at Cintas Corporation. In his role as a national account business development manager, Nussle nearly quadrupled his portfolio from $18 million to $62 million within four years by growing existing relationships and securing new national accounts. At Guardair, Nussle’s territory spans the Midwest and also reaches into the South.

“We’re extremely pleased with the capabilities and experience that Reid and Kurt bring to Guardair, and we are confident they will play vital roles in our growth,” said Nikki Vazeos, director of sales.
