Gary Wilkins joins Super Vac and Command Light as the brands' new southeast sales manager
FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Gary Wilkins joins Super Vac and Command Light as the brands’ new Northeast Sales Manager. He brings more than three years of experience in the fire equipment industry, representing brands like Amkus, FireDex Gear and Honeywell SCBA, as part of C.W. Williams. Wilkins now represents Super Vac’s expansive lineup of ventilation equipment, as well as Command Light’s array of scene lighting products.
Wilkins also brings 11 years of fire service in North Carolina, where he resides. Wilkins is experienced in auto extrication, engine operations and heavy rescue, as well as specialized operations, like RIT team, hazardous material mitigation and wildland search and rescue. During his time volunteering with the Northeast Stokes Vol. Fire & Rescue, he held various positions and currently is the Assistant Rescue Chief.
“We were drawn to Gary’s forward-thinking approach, mixed with his understanding and appreciation of tradition,” says Roger Weinmeister, President of Super Vac and Command Light. “Overall, we’ve never had a candidate come to the interview as prepared as Gary. Not only was it commendable, but that kind of preparation is going to make him a valuable asset to any dealer or department in the southeast.”
Wilkins says it’s an exciting time to join these two brands. “With Super Vac’s new DeWalt- and Milwaukee-battery powered fans, there’s so much buzz just around the Super Vac brand, and Command Light is pushing a light tower giveaway tied to product demos. Not only is the giveaway going to be great for some lucky department, but it means I have a great reason to visit customers, which is really important to me. I really value face-to-face interaction, so I can’t wait to get started.”
