As of July 1, Lance Schamberger will serve our Pacific Northwest customers as Sales Representative. His present duties as Sales Representative for Western Washington and British Columbia will expand to taking full responsibility for sales throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, British Columbia and Alaska; an area currently managed by Toby Schamberger.
This planned transition of sales territory from father to son began in 2004 when Lance began assisting Toby, who has represented us throughout the region for the past 18 years. He is scaling back his sales responsibilities in order to spend more time with his family, but will continue to support Lance by covering specific accounts, traveling certain areas, and assisting as needed.
Lance has grown into the role of Sales Representative for the larger territory by greatly expanding his knowledge of our customers and our trees. Since coming aboard to assist Toby, he has earned ISA Certified Arborist® credentials from the International Society of Arboriculture, thereby raising the level of service to municipalities and specifiers as well as to nursery customers.
We are confident that this merging of sales territories will be seamless for you, our customers. You are probably already acquainted with Lance via his work with Toby. We invite you to welcome him to your nursery in his new role.
