There’s not much Scott Lawyer, Senior Regional Account Manager at Sprenger Midwest, hasn’t seen. From the industry ups and downs, to the latest challenges with COVID-19, these challenges provide the landscape making up over 26 years of service, knowledge and dedication for Scott.
“Back when I started, we were in a different location entirely. Our main office was a small house converted into an office,” says Scott. “It just floors me to look back. Now we’ve expanded to Moorhead, MN this year and we keep growing.”
Scott takes great pride in providing excellent customer service and building relationship throughout his 26 years of service. He also says that seeing the industry change and grow has been fun to see and experience.
Building Relationships Within the Lumber Industry
“It’s all about relationships, says Scott.” Looking back upon his 26 years with Sprenger Midwest, he talks about how the industry’s core remains similar, however, the distribution and sales format method keeps advancing.
“Now, we’re able to have video meetings from our cell phones,” notes Scott. “It’s just wild to see the changes in technology, but at the core, we’re still supplying excellent service and exceptional products. That format will never change.”
We asked Scott what advise he would give a newbie to the industry. Scott simply responded saying “work hard, be polite and deliver what you promise.”
