pat_herron_smWe’re pleased to announce the addition of a new Contract Regional Sales Manager covering Texas and Oklahoma. Patrick Herron comes to us with over 30 years’ experience in engineering, product management, and sales for global high technology companies, providing solutions in materials science. He has also been involved in business development for the dynamic glass market, LEED consulting services, and exterior motorized shades, primarily in northern Texas.

Patrick has a unique knowledge of building envelopes and glazing systems. He also has invaluable experience in project based, consultative selling, which matches perfectly with our business development strategy. Although this will be particularly helpful in our Window Shades and Solar Control Solutions efforts, it will also help Patrick as he represents all Draper product lines to the architectural and contract markets.

“I am honored and humbled to join a family-owned company with a great reputation for building quality products while exercising fiscal responsibility for over 100 years,” according to Patrick. “What makes the opportunity really is exciting is the ‘can do’ attitude of providing custom solutions for today’s ever-changing solar control, audio/video and gymnasium requirements.”

Patrick resides in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and will serve the territory from there. You can contact him at pat.herron@draperinc.com, or by calling 800.238.7999, extension 3117.
