Ian Thomas

On-Premise Sales Manager, Berks County

How long have you been with the company?

I have been with All Star/Origlio for 15 years.

What other positions have you held in the company?

I started out as a merchandiser. I did that for three years before I got a sales route in Berks County. I had that route for three years when I stepped into the role of Key Accounts Manager for Berks and Lancaster Counties. After a restructure of the sales team about four years ago, I took a position as the manager of the on-premise sales team in Berks County, which is my current position.

What is the best thing about your job?

The best part about my job is getting into the market with my reps and talking to accounts. The decisions that are made in those meetings are important to growing our business together.

What does it take to make sure your department runs smoothly on a day-to-day basis?

Trust and communication with my team.

What does it take to be a top-notch sales manager?

I like to lead by example. I can’t ask my team to do something that I wouldn’t do or stand behind. But most of all, you could not be a top notch sales manager without a top notch sales team. I would put my team in Berks up against any other team!

What do you like to do when you’re not working?

I love to golf.

If you could be anywhere in the world drinking any beer, where would you be and what would you be drinking?

Playing golf at Augusta National with friends, while drinking a Coors Light.
