New Partner Feature: Jeff Ratzlaff
What excites you about joining the Indoff team?
I appreciate the friendly/ family type attitude that everyone here at Indoff has shown me over the last few weeks. I also love being a Free Range Chicken – free to sell the products that I want and deal with the customers that I want to deal with (everyone) and freely travel as I please.
Why did you decide to join Indoff?
It was a matter of timing – I had been contacted a few years years ago and my research indicated that Confluence was a good system and that Indoff was a good outfit. Angela stayed in touch until the time and deal were right for me and here we are.
How long have you been in the Material Handling industry?
I’ve been playing the material handling game for 5 years, integrating commercial interiors where it made sense – i’m still learning the energy solutions business and look forward to making that a complementary offering to my main business.
What are the main products you focus on selling?
I really like Auto dealerships…. parts department design, sexy tech benches and stylish office interiors – it’s awesome to hit 3 market segments in a single deal and I definitely see a place for lighting upgrades in this type of deal as well.
How do you enjoy spending a day off?
I absolutely love pointing my Harley towards Montana for a few days on twisty mountain roads and visits over a beer with the colorful and laid back locals in that area…. a summer’s day float on inner tubes down the river with my family is nice too.
If you were to create a slogan for your life, what would it be?
Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.
