In his new role, Weathers is dedicated to providing excellent customer service, product support and follow-through to key clients. Working closely with product manufacturers, engineers and the sales team, Weathers will evaluate proposed system designs to ensure proper performance and installation, and will provide technical sales support and product recommendations. With a mastery of IMTRA product and integration detail, Weathers will answer customer questions including features, benefits, installations, appropriate sizing and interaction with other products within the system, and will be a valuable resource for on board commissioning, installation, troubleshooting and diagnostics.
