Equipment Corporation of America (ECA), a leading distributor of foundation construction equipment, has promoted Jeff Harmston to the position of vice president — sales and marketing, effective July 1, 2017.
Harmston had served as southeast regional sales manager, working out of ECA’s Greensboro, N.C. location since 2011. His role involved managing the sale and rental of foundation equipment and tools, liaising between customers and the parts and service departments; market development, industry involvement through various deep foundations-focused trade associations, and managing the facility and employees.
Harmston’s new role as vice president — sales and marketing will expand his focus from the southeastern United States to ECA’s entire territory including the eastern United States and eastern Canadian provinces. He will oversee corporate sales management, business development, marketing, vendor relations and business forecasting while reporting directly to president Benjamin Dutton.
“Jeff was very successful in developing our market share in the Carolinas,” said Dutton. “He also did a great job in leading us in the transition into the Florida and Georgia markets. When this position became available, Jeff was the obvious candidate for the job.”
Harmston earned a bachelor of science in finance at the University of North Carolina at Greensburg. He received the ADSC President’s Award in 2015 for his accomplishments with the ADSC Carolinas and Southeast Chapters and currently serves as secretary for the Carolinas Chapter. Harmston has been married to his wife Karen for eight years and enjoys spending time on the golf course or at the beach.
