GSI Sales Trainee: Alex Floyd
Ensuring our customers are taken care of is our top priority. We thrive on the mutual success of our customers and show our dedication through establishing personal relationships. Upholding our positive and family-focused workplace culture, John Andy Ward, General Manager of Great Southern Industries a Rusken Company (GSI), has been hard at work establishing a smooth transition plan for new sales representative, Alex Floyd.
Graduating from Mississippi State University in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Finance in Risk Management and Insurance, Alex began his career journey with Rusken in August 2021. Alex has spent time training within each GSI department with the goal of becoming a part of the GSI Rusken Sales Team, which is why he was eager to jump at the opportunity to train under Rusken Sales Rep, Danny Davis. Ensuring his customers would continue to receive the highest standard of care, Danny has taken Alex under his wing, showing him the ropes during the transition period before his pending retirement in January 2023. After 4 months of shadowing Danny, when asked what the most important thing he has learned, Alex said:
“Working with Danny has put in perspective the importance of building personal relationships with customers and prospects. To build those personal relationships, you must make time for face-to-face visits, learn about their families and hobbies to establish a bond outside of work.”
Similar to Rusken’s own, Alex’s personal core values are integrity, respect, and determination. When Alex is not learning the ropes from Danny, he enjoys spending time with his fiancé, golfing, and hunting.
Please join us in welcoming Alex as part of the Great Southern Industries Rusken Sales Team!
