U.S. Sales Manager

Cyanco Tenure: 33 years

Day-to-Day Responsibilities: My primary responsibility is maintaining the relationships necessary to ensure the safe, responsible delivery of our product to customers. Because I lived in Winnemucca for 32 years, and am still located in Nevada (Reno), I’ve had the opportunity to build connections with lots of people in the mining industry outside of work. Over the years, strong relationships have developed through volunteering with organizations such as NVMA or helping out with local youth sports. I’m very lucky to say that most days I feel like I’m doing business with my friends!

Professional Journey: I’ve been with Cyanco for nearly 33 years in a variety of roles. I started out as an Operator at the Winnemucca plant. After a few years in Operations, I took a job managing the company’s Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) function. Eventually I moved over to Sales, where my background in manufacturing and safety – alongside my overall experience in handling cyanide – proved valuable in addressing a variety of customer needs from technical problem-solving to employee training to site assessments.

Favorite Thing About Working at Cyanco: Customers know that Cyanco will come through for them, and I like being part of that. I also like the flexibility the company has given me, and the ability to interact with the industry, such as being on the board of NVMA and the Ronald McDonald House.
