What Drew You to Work at Mueller?
Brad’s sales career spans nearly 30 years. Before coming to Mueller, he worked for small businesses as well as Fortune 100 companies. That’s how he learned which environment was best for him.
“I just prefer being able to be one phone call away from the owner, one step away from the president. I like the family atmosphere.” — Brad Brackman
Brad felt right at home when he decided to work for Mueller in 2007. He knew Pete Futia, General Manager, from a previous job, and Chad Hall, Sales Operations Manager, from college.
“These are upstanding, top-notch folks. These people are my friends; they’re not just who I work with.” — Brad Brackman
How Does Mueller Support You?
Mueller supports Brad by giving him what he needs to do to his job. Whether he’s asking for an investment in resources or advocating to get a customer’s shipment expedited, upper management always does their best to oblige.
“They give me the autonomy and the freedom because they trust me to make good decisions for the company.” — Brad Brackman
Brad has not been inside Mueller’s facility since the start of the pandemic. In that time, he’s been able to continue to do his job remotely without any extra oversight from Mueller.
“They know that I’ve had 14 years of above quota performance. They just trust that I’m going to get it done. And I do get it done.” — Brad Brackman
What Is the Future of Mueller?
Brad believes great things are ahead for Mueller. The company pushed through the pandemic similarly to how it survived the 2008-2009 recession by adding vital resources and promoting the business.
“We’re seeing activity, leads, calls, and opportunities come about that we would not have known about otherwise simply because we invested in our company and ourselves.” — Brad Brackman
Brad says Mueller is a fun place to work. You get rewarded for your efforts, and you also learn a lot.
