We have a celebrity in our midst!

September 11, 2013

Sears Trostel's own, general manager Curt Viehmeyer, is having what we hope is not his only 15 minutes of fame. His smiling face was featured in an advertisement in the recent July/August issue of LBM Journal -- a trade publication that provides strategies for lumber and building material distribution professionals.

What is this all about you ask? Here at Sears Trostel, Curt uses Epicor BisTrack software to keep operations running smoothly, so that we can concentrate on providing the great customer service we're known for. One day while talking to an Epicor representative, Curt told them how much he loved the computer system, and they said "Can we quote you on that?" and the making of an ad was born. 

Professional photographer Kristi Hill (you may remember her as a ST employee who is now finding her fame behind the camera) was sent to take photos of our leading man. Some great shots were then shipped off to Epicor's ad agency, and the ad on the left came to life!

Click the image to see the ad in action. It received great placement, too...right across from the Table of Contents.

Next time you're in the store, be sure to congratulate Curt...and ask him for his autograph!
