NJATC members and state/local electrical code members to vote for

Division-friendly changes and proposals that create demand for Division

product.

+ Develop specification-oriented sales materials,

articles and presentations as appropriate

+ Identify gaps in the product offering and

associated potential new products and applications

+ Provide pre-sale and value-add post sale

support to OEMs on product applications

+ Drive specifications at end users that “pull

through” Bussmann series products at OEMs that support the end user.

+ Provide technical product training and updates

to both internal and external customers

+ Establish as the subject matter expert or the

“go-to” resource on overcurrent protection in the territory and develop

appropriate materials, articles and presentations and other training aids to

achieve the desired sales goals.

+ Accumulates and fosters technical knowledge to

stay on the cutting edge of expertise
