Jeff Schmitt

COO, Würth Industrial Division

How long have you worked at Würth?

8 years.

What do you like most about your job?

Employee development/training and closing sales deals. There's nothing more rewarding than feeling the excitement and enthusiasm of team members being coached/trained to help them achieve their goals--except when a prospect contacts you say we've been awarded their business!

What's a common question you get from customers?

Two questions I'm always asked: 1) Can I get a cost savings? 2) Where did you play football?

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

Working out. Golf. Hiking. Spending time with family and friends.

What are your favorite sports teams?

Washington Redskins

What is a typical day like for you?

Every day is different, which is one of the things I love about my job and working for Würth. Employee training/development, future strategizing, sales calls, process improvement, contract review, and data analysis are a few responsibilities that are a part of my daily work.

What's a fun fact about you?

I was in a commercial as a kid when I lived in Korea.
