His strong work ethic, thorough and prompt customer follow-up and team player approach make him highly worthy of this honor.”
Residing in southern California, Schmidt has handled sales support within Putzmeister’s Southwest region for the past eight years, covering California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and Hawaii. With over 30 years of experience in the concrete pumping industry, Schmidt started as a mechanic/operator and owned his own business prior to joining Putzmeister.
