NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Star Distributing has hired John Herron as its vice president of sales, the commercial laundry distributor reports.
Herron will call on vended, on-premises and commercial laundry customers in Star Distributing’s service area of Tennessee, Kentucky, northern Alabama and northern Georgia.
Previously, Herron worked 15 years as a regional sales manager for Electrostim Medical Services Inc., a medical device company based in Tampa, Fla. While there, he was in charge of hiring, training and managing a sales team of 28 in serving an eight-state territory in the northern Midwest.
Herron now owns a coin laundry, Star Distributing says, which gives him hands-on experience to share with the laundry distributor’s customers.
“I am very proud to have John, with all his experience in customer service and sales,” says Michael Davis, president of Star Distributing. “He is going to be a great addition to the Star Distributing team. We look forward to working with John for many years to come.”
Star Distributing, which offers commercial laundry equipment, installation, parts and service to its customers, has been in business for 62 years. The company originated in Atlanta and migrated to the Tennessee and Kentucky markets in the early 1990s.
