Sand Creek Welcomes new National Sales Director
Sand Creek Post & Beam of Wayne, NE is pleased to announce the appointment of Barry Blue as National Sales Director. Barry has over 30 years of experience in direct sales, primarily in the home improvement Industry. Barry spent (26) of those years with the Pacesetter Corporation, which was one of the largest privately held home improvement companies in the country, working his way from the position of factory representative to the Vice President/National Sales Director role that he held during the last (5) years of his tenure with Pacesetter.
“We’re incredibly pleased to have Barry on board” says Len Dickinson, President and Co-Owner of Sand Creek Post & Beam. “I’ve known Barry since my high school days and it’s splendid to be working with him after all these years. His expertise and knowledge is invaluable and we’re excited to implement his professional team-oriented direction within our sales team.”
Barry’s background in direct sales has provided him with a wealth of knowledge in terms of dealing day to day with clients who have an interest in purchasing a Sand Creek product. He has a significant background in the development of both individuals who have little or no selling experience, and spent years building Sales Teams within organizations. He has been able to accomplish this primarily due to his ability to understand and deal with multiple personalities, thus allowing him to fully understand an individual and discover their strengths and weaknesses, then working diligently to educate and motivate that individual to reach levels of success that they did not feel they could achieve.
Barry received his BS in Education from USD and his MS in Education from UNL. He’s been married for over 30 years and has 3 children. He currently lives in Omaha, NE. He’s a member of the USD and UNL Alumni associations, the USD Howling Pack Athletic Association, USD Hall of Fame Football inductee and enjoys all types of sports, exercising, and time with his family.
“For me, joining the Sand Creek Post and Beam organization is truly very exciting. The Company and the product lines are exceptional. Additionally, my decision was influenced by the fact that I believe Sand Creek has a tremendous upside in terms of growth both nationally and internationally. The barns and the materials used to construct the barns, as well as the other product lines are meticulous and therefore when a barn is constructed our client’s expectations are exceeded. Finally, having the opportunity to work closely again with an old friend and classmate, Len Dickinson, the founder of the company, and his wife Jule Goeller, really helped to make my decision an easy one. Most importantly, what I hope to have the most impact on at Sand Creek, is my ability to teach the “art of selling” to the many Dealers that Sand Creek has in place to service their Clientele. Because Sand Creek has such extraordinary products, this will aid me in the development of the Dealer’s “selling skills”, and provide me with the ability to work on growing Sand Creek’s Sales organization one individual at a time, resulting in a very powerful direct sales organization” says Blue.
Sand Creek Post & Beam has a nationwide presence with over 300 structures throughout the country and Canada. ”Our customers are building a variety of structures from our kits; everything from a small barn or garage, horse barn, business office, and hunting lodge, to a complete home. Post and beam construction is very versatile and the beauty of the wood is highlighted in these buildings,” says Dickinson. With an emphasis on quality and customer satisfaction, Sand Creek Post & Beam takes great pride in providing traditional barn kits that are functional, flexible, powerful and aesthetically pleasing.
