Getting To Know Dave Ballard, Sales Manager/Field Design Engineer
Since June of 2018, Dave Ballard has worked with Symbiont Service Corp in Englewood, Florida. He started his career with them as a field engineer and now oversees the sales team in his role of sales manager. Although, once a field design engineer always a field design engineer and that is a benefit for the clients Symbiont Service Corp works with.
In a recent phone interview I asked Dave:
What do you do/have you done in your roles with Symbiont?
As a field design engineer, I look at complicated projects and make certain we are providing what the customer needs.
- Are we installing the correct number of heaters?
- What are the flow rates?
- What is needed to convert an existing pool from gas or another form of heating to the most economical and environmentally friendly geothermal?
As a sales manager, Dave hires sales associates, prepares budgets, monitors sales and plans and directs the marketing of various programs. “I look at my role as a way to aid the sales team and help them be successful.”
