FSI’s Gary Schield Sales Achievement 2013

Gary Schield is our Territory Manager for Davidson County/Nashville at our corporate headquarters. This past year Gary hit a milestone with Forklift Systems when he sold over $2 million in equipment for the 2013 year.

Gary has been with FSI for the past 8 years and in the material handling industry since 1991. When asked what he enjoys the most about the material handling industry Gary said “helping people solve problems”. With over 2 million dollars in sales I would say Gary knows a thing or two about solving our customer’s problems.

In Gary’s spare time he enjoys working on and driving his 1961 Porsche 356B. Some of his other interests include listening to vinyl records on his sound system and working around his house.

Everyone at Forklift Systems congratulates Gary on a great year!
