Effective September 1, 2020 Cisco-Eagle has named James Murphy Vice-President of Sales according to company president Darein Gandall.
Murphy brings a wealth of experience to the position. After beginning his material handling career at Hytrol Conveyors, Murphy joined Cisco-Eagle in a sales role in 1998, where he was instrumental in a number of successful large projects for customers in food production, distribution and manufacturing. He joined Colson Casters in a sales leadership role in 2007, before returning to Cisco-Eagle as Arkansas Sales Director in 2013. In that role, he revitalized the sales teams and processes that significantly increased Cisco-Eagle’s reach and overall market position in Arkansas.
“James has proven invaluable,” said Gandall. “His ability to nurture and guide our sales group has helped us increase our market share and improve the solutions we provide to customers. His responsibilities will encompass all sales activities throughout the company, allowing me to transition to broader concerns as we grow.”
In his new role, Murphy will direct all sales operations at Cisco-Eagle with a focus on developing the company’s sales force and its ability to serve customers across all its markets and offices. He will focus on training and development of sales professionals and managers. Murphy will create and execute Cisco-Eagle’s go-to-market and operational strategies and participate with other senior managers in strategic planning. He will monitor the department’s key performance indicators (KPIs) that impact the sales department and customers. Murphy will also assist the sales department with strategic customers and opportunities.
“We always work to solve problems for our customers,” Murphy said. “We’re constantly looking for ways to do that better and it starts with a professional sales team. We want to help our customers succeed, and it starts with the kind of exceptional salespeople we have here.”
