People

Here at Carrington Engineering Sales, our team members are as unique and interesting as the client base we serve. A perfect mixture of personalities and experiences have blended together to form the Communichemistry that is Carrington. Collectively, we have: swept floors, cleaned bathrooms, worked as Design Engineers, worked as Metal fabricators, managed small businesses, invented products, served as the national sales manager for an international company, and much more.

Our diverse experiences allow us to see things from different perspectives in order to understand your needs. Take some time to get to know a few of our folks. Well-rounded, well-read, and well, maybe just a little bit weird.
