ATLANTA, Ga. — Takeuchi-US has awarded inside sales manager David Pearson with a plaque to honor his 30th year with the company.

Pearson started out part-time with Takeuchi while still in high school. In 1985 he transitioned to full-time working with machine inventory and parts shipping. From there he evolved from machine distribution to his current position as inside sales manager. His career path is similar to that of Takeuchi-US president, Clay Eubanks, who also celebrated his 30th anniversary this past fall. Eubanks was on-hand to present Pearson with the official 30 Years of Service Award from the Takeuchi-US team.

“David and I started at Takeuchi when we were both still in high school, so we go way back,” Eubanks said. “He is very dedicated to Takeuchi and has been instrumental in growing the brand throughout the U.S. We very much appreciate the dedication and hard work that David has put in over the last three decades.”

“It is a joy to come into work and have such great working relationships with staff members and our customers,” Pearson said. “Every day is different, but enjoyable. The relationships are very important to the success within and outside the company. We have always provided a superior product that is manufactured for the environment it is designed for, but just as important is the people behind the name that really work hard to provide the best support that we can to keep the whole process moving forward. I am grateful for the opportunity that Takeuchi has provided for me to grow and allow me to help not only our company, but our customers to be successful.”
