“The Alloy Geek is an enthusiastic hardworking salesman and metallurgist.
I worked with the Alloy Geek for nearly three years at Rigaku Analytical devices. He has a passion for metallurgy and has been an excellent resource. He is always happy and willing to share his knowledge and is a strong voice for his customers’ needs. He is very personable, outgoing, and reliable. He combines these traits with his deep knowledge of metals to grow excellent customer relationships. It’s been a pleasure working with the Alloy Geek. He clearly loves what he does and it shows in his work.”

“Highly motivated technical sales summarizes the Alloy Geek.
I was fortunate to work with him in his role as Technical sales. His technical background allowed him to catch up on our technology quicker than most. Soon after starting he was facing customers providing technical content flawlessly. His calm personality allowed him to deal with a very difficult customer and transform them into one of our strongest advocate. The Alloy Geek is also passionate about his work. I have seen him talking about metallurgy with the same passion that some would reserve for their favorite sports team. Stuck in a hotel during a blizzard I have seen the Alloy Geek sit at the bar and start technical discussions with perfect strangers! By the end of the evening his was exchanging ideas on metal composition with a knife maker and proposing some of our instruments for testing!
When it comes to presenting instruments and technology, he gains the attention of customers through stories of past testing applications which always pick the curiosity of the listeners. Continuously trying to improve himself, he is always open to feedback and acts quickly on it. He is a great team player bringing new ideas to push our products and improve them.”
