Gradle Joins Laundry Concepts Sales Team

ADDISON, Ill. — Commercial laundry equipment distributor Laundry Concepts reports it has added David Gradle to its sales team, describing him as a “well-rounded, creative professional in the commercial laundry solutions industry who values building successful customer partnerships.”

A bachelor of fine arts degree in electronic media from Northern Illinois University helped Gradle jump-start his career at a design firm as a multimedia designer. Over the course of eight years, his programming, video production, animation and motion design skills helped his B2B corporate communications team create unique marketing and sales presentations as well as website content for clients.

Prior to joining Laundry Concepts, Gradle spent 10 years enhancing his construction aptitude and detailed product knowledge for an automatic pedestrian door company. He compiled bids utilizing architectural plans, met with prospects, presented to architects, and negotiated contracts.

His new sales role will complement Gradle’s proven record of working with customers as a partner in their business, Laundry Concepts says.

Gradle is married, and the couple has a son. Away from work, he is fond of playing golf, spending time with family, and repairing various types of machinery in his garage.
