2019 by Laurie Northington in Business Strategy, Industry
OW Lee, a manufacturer of high-end outdoor furniture, fire pits, and accessories located in Ontario, Calif., has added Chris Hemrick as an independent sales rep for North and South Carolina.
Hemrick joins the company with 22 years of industry experience. He started in the retail side of the outdoor furniture industry as a warehouse and delivery representative and quickly rose through the ranks where he eventually managed his own retail store.
In January of 2010, Hamrick transitioned into the manufacturer sales rep role and since has won several Sales Excellence and Salesman of the Year awards. When he isn’t working or on the road, Hamrick enjoys an active lifestyle with his wife and two young children and is an avid sports fan. Hamrick and his family reside outside of Charlotte, North Carolina and enjoy rooting for their hometown Carolina Panthers.
“I am optimistic about the addition of Chris to our sales force,” said Brenda Pereyda, sales manager for OW Lee. “Chris has tremendous dedication and heart and is a great fit for OW Lee.”
