To further its reputation as a leader in experienced customer care, the company recently appointed Jim Plavecsky to regional sales manager, Brian Plavecsky to technical service rep and added the Tom Evans Sales Group as manufacturers’ rep. “More than ever, our customers are looking for ways to differentiate themselves in the competitive marketplace,” said Rick Mathews, national sales manager, East, for Edgetech I.G. “We need to answer their concerns and provide them with highly experienced professionals who can help them take their businesses to the next level.

Jim Plavecsky and the Tom Evans Sales Group are the ideal team to assist customers in the Great Lakes region. We are very happy to have them on board.”

The new sales structure enables me to increase my effectiveness for Edgetech by utilizing my sales management skills. I look forward to growing my territory and adding value to our customer relationships.”

Plavecsky holds a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from Gannon University in Erie, Penn., and an MBA in marketing from Oklahoma State University. Plavecsky’s son, Brian, will also join the Edgetech family as a technical service rep at the company’s headquarters in Cambridge.
