Meet Lew Peck, PEI-Genesis Sales Engineer

Written by PEI-Genesis on 5/24/18 11:02 AM

Lew Peck joined the PEI team one year ago as a Sales Engineer for the Central region of the United States. He’s appreciated the opportunity to grow professionally and find the best solutions for his customers’ needs. Lew knows solution selling is not a one-time thing; it requires constant follow-up. He believes that’s something that sets PEI apart – the fact that we search for the best possible solution and are willing to push the limits of what’s already been done. Lew feels that customers continue to return to us because we relentlessly solve their interconnect problems. He’s enjoyed helping the sales team understand the difference and importance of selling value versus just selling components. Lew takes pleasure in pushing others to realize their full potential.
