Insulectro Expands Sales Leadership to Meet Demands of Changing Marketplace


Reading time ( words)

Insulectro, a leading distributor of materials for use in the PCB and printed electronics industries, has announced promotions to the leadership of its sales division.

“2015 has been a strong year for us in both the PCB side of our business as well as our new printed electronics initiatives,” Insulectro Vice President of Sales Ken Parent commented. “It’s time to increase our focus on sales and service with two well deserved promotions.”

Effectively immediately, longtime Insulectro veterans Trey Adams and Sean Redfern become Regional Vice Presidents for the Eastern US and Western US respectively. Both Adams and Redfern will continue to report to Parent.

“Insulectro has long had a national footprint with its 10 stocking locations domestically. We learned years ago we want to be where our customers are. It makes sense that we also specialize our sales management regionally to align with our operations,” Parent continued.

Under the new plan, Trey Adams will assume responsibility for sales in Londonderry, NH; Bloomingdale, IL; Dallas, TX; and Eden Prairie, MN (Insulectro’s new location in the Twin Cities area); and Canada. Adams will also oversee sales efforts, as well, in the Pacific Northwest, an area he formerly served.

Redfern will lead the sales in Southern California, Silicon Valley, Tempe, AZ, and Aurora, CO, 

Adams has been a key player in Insulectro’s growth and success in the Midwest PCB market for over 11 years. His intimate knowledge of PCB and PE products and has great rapport with customers making him invaluable to Insulectro’s OEM strategy by successfully embracing the company’s highly-touted ACT! Initiative (a synergistic program that advancing the needs of all members of the supply chain – OEM, designer, fabricator, distributor, and supplier). 

Sean Redfern has been involved in leadership roles across most of the Redfern Companies during his 14 years, including Tri-Star Laminates (LCOA), relocating to Shanghai, China for nearly 2 years and establishing a presence in China with Tri-Star International Group (TIG), spearheading our sales and marketing efforts for Integral Technologies. For the past 1½ years Redfern has fulfilled a Regional Sales Management role for Insulectro in Southern California.  His experience will be invaluable to Insulectro’s strategic growth initiatives along with his proven track record of building strong alliances with customers and suppliers.

“I’m pleased we have two remarkably talented sales leaders in these new, important roles. As a distributor of best-in-class materials from such PCB suppliers as Isola, DuPont, LCOA, CAC, Pacothane, Ormet Circuits, and Focus Tech Chemicals, along with DuPont, Kodak, Vistana, and Coveme, and others on the Printed Electronics side, we are in the middle of rapidly changing technologies and an amazing onslaught of new, high performance materials. I know Trey and Sean look forward to meeting Insulectro’s customers throughout their territories,” Parent stated.

“This is the first of several announcements we will make in the near future – all exciting and each providing new strategies for helping our customers strengthen their businesses,” Ken Parent concluded.

No matter how you look at it, we’re already off to a roaring start in 2022. Here on the West Coast of the U.S., heavy and persistent rains are doing what they can to fix years of drought through the southwest United States. The eastern seaboard is seeing plenty of rainy weather as well. As they say on the salt containers: When it rains, it pours. That adage is rather true in the news of the industry this week. Therefore, my must-reads include a celebration of longevity in business, the launch of our next space telescope, and the sale of equipment for the printing of electronics. On a more circumspect note, we also bring you the IPC’s report on rising material and labor costs, and an article on cybersecurity.
