Team Dietz Chicago
I began my career with Dietz Supply Company as service technician in 2000. While in the service department I was essential in implementing our mobile service unit and streamlining the department to serve the client more efficiently. I am fully certified & factory trained in both powder equipment and liquid application systems. I transitioned into account management in 2006, covering the majority of the Wisconsin territory. During my tenure as an account manager, I have worked with some of the top manufacturers in my territory. I have continuously won national awards for my performance in the finishing industry. I am driven in every aspect of my life to go above and beyond, from sports, to parenting, to work, & I enjoy satisfaction of doing something the best it can be done.
I graduated from Lewis University with a degree in aircraft maintenance. I started with the company in October of 1983 which at that time was Graves Spray Supply. I handled the service department doing repairs, equipment installations, demonstrations, I moved into sales in the late 80's and by the early 90's had my own sales area. My territory runs from the south side of Chicago down to central Illinois. I enjoy helping my customers get the most out of their finishing systems with a Hands-On approach. I have earned numerous sales awards from the manufacturers that we represent. In my spare time I enjoy flying radio-controlled airplanes and fishing.
District Sales Manager
I have been in the manufacturing field since 1997. I joined the sales team at Dietz Supply as a District Sales Manager in August 2016. I cover a large part of Wisconsin as well as the Upper Peninsula of Michigan since joining the Dietz Team. I have earned awards from the manufacturer that we support. I have been involved in paint processes since 2004. I have a Green Belt in Lean Manufacturing. In my free time I enjoy golfing, great outdoors and I have a personal goal of visiting all the National Parks in America. I look forward to continuing to work with our great customers and #TeamDietz!

After graduating from Milliken University, I started in the industrial spray equipment business
in March 1984.
The Dietz Family purchased the business in 1989 which was located in Addison, IL. As the business grew, we expanded the company and purchased a larger facility in Huntley, IL., and also a branch in Clearwater, FL. This month, I will be celebrating my 37th year with Dietz Supply Company. Each year I continue to learn, grow, and enjoy the business of industrial spray equipment. I hope I can lend my experience and expertise in the industry to all of my current and future customers.

In 1985 I graduated from Northern Illinois University and trained under the rigorous sales program of the Pitney Bowes Company, before joining the Dietz Supply Company. In 1989 the Dietz Family purchased Graves Spray Supply Company from the Hedger family, our close relatives. Both companies have a combined seventy-five years + of extraordinary experience in the industrial finishing and fluid handling market.
