How did you begin working at Haws and how long have you worked there?
DM: I was recruited from General Electric in Feb 2014 and have enjoyed working at Haws as Director of Global Products ever since.
What sales opportunities do you see Haws having and taking advantage of in the 2015/2016?
DM: I see opportunity for continued growth in our traditional markets and we are actively looking to expand into new markets.
As Director of Global Products, what are some current or upcoming products/projects in place?
DM: I’m looking forward to the introduction of our new Brita® product. This product represents a solid addition to our Brita® portfolio of products. On the Haws Integrated™ side, we are completing a new 8720 Outdoor Overhead Tank Shower which will leverage a number of positive customer driven enhancements over its predecessor.
What are you most excited about for Haws in 2015/2016?
DM: Our Haws focus on developing and bringing new products to market. We are strengthening our new product development team and aligning our strategies and processes for success. I am excited to be a part of this effort.
What is your favorite extra-curricular activity and why?
DM: When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and 3 adult children. In addition, I like spending time in the outdoors. The mountains around Reno and Lake Tahoe offer an ideal setting for flying and hiking.
If you could live in any city/town, where would it be?
DM: I have been fortunate that I have had the opportunity to live in many places in the U.S. I am a transplant to Reno and really enjoy all that Reno and the surrounding area has to offer. So, Reno has become my first choice!
