Cogsdill’s Southeast Regional Sales Manager, Chuck Kannisto, has announced that he will be retiring at the end of 2019.
Chuck has worked for Cogsdill since 1980 when he was hired in their Farmington Hills, Michigan office. He transferred to Cogsdill’s South Carolina office and company headquarters in 1981 where he handled customer trials and customer technical support, which eventually included some overseas areas such as China / Asia and Mexico.
Kannisto was eventually named sales manager for the SC-based regions, which at the time included the Southeastern US, the West Coast, the Southwestern US, and New England. From there, he became Customer Service Manager until he was promoted to Southeast Regional Sales Manager in 2009.
Kannisto has always been valued by the company and customers alike for his technical abilities with all Cogsdill products, and particularly the Shefcut product line, and he has continually been involved with training customers and distributors in the field as well as in Cogsdill-sponsored seminars. The entire Cogsdill family wishes Chuck all the best in his retirement.
