Camfil Promotes Allen Oakes to Alabama Branch Manager
After helping to build branch into one of Camfil’s best-performing locations, Oakes will officially assume responsibility for its day-to-day operation
Camfil – the world’s leading provider of sustainable, energy-efficient clean air solutions – is pleased to announce the promotion of Allen Oakes to manager of its Alabama sales branch. Oakes, who over the past four years has helped to build the Alabama branch into one of Camfil’s best-performing locations, will now officially assume responsibility for its overall operation.
The role is not quite a new one for Oakes, who had undertaken the position unofficially – with great success – upon the promotion of Greg Herman, the previous branch manager, to Mid-Atlantic Regional Sales Manager. Together, Herman and Oakes spurred significant sales increases in Alabama – with a rise of 32 percent recorded in just their first year together.
“Allen has proven himself not just a terrific leader within Camfil, but a highly effective advocate and communicator of the company’s value proposition,” says Joe Brennan, Director of Camfil Branch Operations. “Stressing Camfil’s key differentiator – that its longer lasting, more efficient air filters don’t just perform better, they deliver a total cost of ownership that’s lower than the competition – Allen has helped the Alabama branch gain market share in key segments including schools, universities, automotive facilities, and healthcare. He did it with Greg – who as our Mid-Atlantic Regional Sales Manager continues to boost the company’s performance – and he’s doing it on his own.”
Indeed, through Allen’s solo efforts, the Alabama location’s sales are already 23 percent ahead of projections this year. Additional accolades, Brennan says, should go to Wendy Goolsby and Danny Martinez, who have also been strong contributors to the branch’s growth and success.
In conjunction with Oakes’s promotion, Camfil has also added Jamie Golden as the company’s new Territory Sales Manager for southern Alabama.
“Jamie has the same naturally strong sales skills that we saw in Allen when he first joined Camfil,” says Brennan, “so we expect their pairing to prove every bit as successful as team Allen and Greg made. These are Camfil managers – and a Camfil branch – with a ton of potential just waiting to be tapped.”
The world leader in air filtration systems, Camfil provides clean air solutions for hospitals, hotels, office buildings, educational institutions, and pharmaceutical and biotech companies. We provide the tools to achieve sustainability, maintain high air quality, and reduce airborne infections -- all while lowering total cost of ownership.
