Welcome Derrick Flier to the Team
New Pump & Meter Sales Rep for Plains Region
We are thrilled to welcome Derrick Flier to the Pump & Meter Team as our Plains region Sales Representative. He will cover South Dakota, North Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, and Nebraska. He can be reached @Dflier@pumpandmeter.com or by calling (605)496-4505.
Our first question for Derrick was how to pronounce his last name. Around the office, we had a few different ways of pronouncing his last name; flyer, flare, flear. Turns out its “fleer,” like the baseball card. Derrick grew up farming in southeastern South Dakota near the Missouri River. He’s still a local boy to this day, now living in a suburb of Sioux Falls with his wife of 25 years and 3 boys. When not learning about or engaging in farm related activities, Derrick enjoys classic cars and street rods. He co-founded the Hills Car Club and has successfully run a car show and the Poker Run for 12 years.
He attended Southeast Tech for marketing and, upon graduating, landed a job with C & R Supply. There he worked in a sales and marketing role. He supported both inside and outside sales, managed trade shows and even got his hands dirty troubleshooting sprayer equipment. His 10 years there saw a wide variety of industry solutions and applications of pumping and metering technologies. His design experience of liquid transfer systems and spray equipment is a great addition to the Pump & Meter team.
After achieving terrific success at C & R, Hagie Manufacturing recruited him to be a Territory Manager. There, he continued to drive enthusiasm for sprayer technology through direct demonstration of the product and successful trade show engagements. One of his standout traits was his commitment to the customer. Derrick not only sold product, he also trained and helped his customers so that they would have great user experiences with Hagie Manufacturing.
At Pump & Meter Solutions, Derrick will leverage all this experience to help our customer find fantastic solutions and have great experiences with our quality products. Our philosophy, that Derrick shares, is to earn customer loyalty by finding the right solutions to challenging fluid transfer problems. Keep a look-out for Derrick and ask him how we can help you make your job easier!
