Eric Wheeler

Executive Sales Director
Central Region, Würth Industry North America
Louisville, KY

How long have you worked at Würth?

17 Years.

What do you like most about your job?

Being able to meet with many different types of people and seeing various manufacturing processes and styles.

What's a common question you get from customers?

A more common theme of "please quote some parts first or a market basket." However, this is more of an opportunity to show case our value proposition vs the piece price of a specific part or two. We're a true partner in every sense of inventory management, not just a company pushing product.

What do you like to do when you're not working?

Love to golf, but not very good. BBQ cooking, smoking meat and grilling. Travel with my bride. Watching college sports, especially the Tennesse Vols - Go Big Orange!

What are your favorite sports teams?

The Tennessee Vols, The New York Yankees, The Memphis Grzziles, The Tennessee Titans

What is a typical day like for you?

Review of Daily Sales to Plan and fact finding. Talking with my Sales Managers on projects. Managing opportunities and discussing service levels.

What's a fun fact about you?

I played college baseball. Also my wife calls me every day at lunch time, to check on me and say hi.
