He then became market leader for Arkansas, assisting other account executives to reach their potential.
“Rodney has a journalist’s mind,” said James Murphy. “He asks the right questions and gets to the facts. That’s one of the things that makes him so good at solving problems for customers. He is now bringing that skill set to his sales director role.”
