“B&B Electronics embarked on a major transformation, fueled by major technology and product development to re-position itself as a leader in the emerging Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) market. As well as managing our existing sales through our Distribution channel, PJ grew and developed our sales organization towards a more technologically sophisticated and solutions focus. He managed this phase very effectively adding technical sales specialists, strategic account managers and developing eco-system partnerships with other technology companies in the industry (IBM, Dell, PTC, AT&T, and Verizon, among others) as a basis for “sell with” and “sell through” arrangements.”

“I had the opportunity to work with PJ for over 10 years during my time as the North American Sales Leader for Honeywell. I can attest to the fact that his visionary sales leadership and advocacy for our line was a driving force behind the success we achieved. His ability to adjust the sales tactics in a rapidly changing business environment while staying focused on the strategy was masterful. His commitment and integrity are well recognized by the manufacturers, distributors, Reps and most importantly customers he has worked with. As a consultant PJ is now able to share that skill and experience with his clients insuring their channel strategy and structure is well positioned for growth.”
