DriSteem has appointed Dave Bennett as its new regional sales manager on the East Coast of the United States.

Bennett joins DriSteem with over 18 years of experience in the HVAC industry. Most recently, he was employed at United CoolAir Corporation as a regional sales manager. Prior to that, he was an HVAC sales engineer with Johnson Controls where he provided his customers with technical training, as well as job site and sales support.

Bennett’s primary role is to act as an advocate for his assigned reps — supplying application and sales support within and beyond the rep organization. The company says his proven track record of success and his personal drive for excellent service complement DriSteem’s continuing commitment to providing the best customer support in the industry.

“DriSteem is a well-respected company and a huge player in the HVAC industry,” Bennett said. “My background allows me to understand and empathize with both the business and technical aspects of the rep’s operation. I started my HVAC career as a residential contractor. I moved from installing equipment and managing a radiant heat department to working for a manufacturers’ rep in both inside and outside sales. I have also had experience as a regional manager for an HVAC manufacturer. I’m excited to be part of the DriSteem team and I look forward to providing top-notch service and support to my reps.”
