We are excited to announce both Shawn Patton and Ryan Anderson as the new National Accounts Sales Managers. There isn't a better team to have managing this critical part of the FreeMotion business. They are great leaders who represent what FreeMotion is all about.
Ryan is not a new face to FreeMotion, but has the skills and experience to excel in his new position. He has been selling fitness equipment since 1999 and then moved to FreeMotion in 2004. For the past 10 years he has been the Territory Manager of So. Cal, Vegas, and Hawaii. During that time he has been awarded 2005 Quota Buster Award, 2006 Highest Percent of Quota, 2006 National Account Representative of the Year, 2007 Sales Representative of the Year, and 2007 Quota Buster Award. Pat McGinnis says of Ryan , "Ryan to me was just the definition of a company guy who had earned the chance and I'm happy he stepped up to the new and challenging role as National Accounts Director. He has proven his dedication to the company. His talents have proved him to be a top performer every year with the company." We are excited for Ryan in this new position and know that he will continue to show the same level of excellence as a National Accounts Sales Manager.
Shawn Patton is an industry veteran who worked with FreeMotion in the early years. He has close to 25 years of experience in our industry, many of them in national accounts. We are pleased to welcome him back and look forward to his contributions. Shawn was the Dealer/Key Accounts Manager for Precor, VP of Sales for Power Plate, National Accounts for EFI Sports Medicine, VP of Sales and National Accounts for Octane Fitness, and a Business Coach and Sales Trainer. Pat says of Shawn, "I brought Shawn to the team because he really represented the best of what we were looking for. He understands the FreeMotion story because he was a part of the company in the early days. He also has a broad perspective of the industry. Shawn is a well-rounded leader and just what I was looking for in the position." Welcome back Shawn and we look forward to having you as a National Accounts Sales Manager.
