Vulcan is growing! It’s already been one month since Linda Wilson, Manager of Automotive Sales for Vulcan Aluminum, joined our team and already she is making big strides. After a brief Q & A session, we think you will see why we are excited to have her on board!
Vulcan: Linda, you are based out of the Detroit area. Have you always lived in Michigan?
Linda: Yes, born and raised.
Vulcan: We are all about family at Vulcan, so tell us about your fam jam!
Linda: I have a wonderful husband, one sister, one brother, and three nephews, and last but not least, my only child has four legs….her name is Ginger and she is our 14 year old yellow lab.
Vulcan: What would you say is your personal motto when it comes to sales?
Linda: Be honest and be you…which leads to trust…which leads to customers for life!
Vulcan: With your background being in the steel industry, what have you identified as the major difference between the steel and aluminum industry?
Linda: Well, I have been in the metals industry for 30 years, 15 of which has been concentrated on aluminum and stainless. I find the non-ferrous end of the business has far fewer competitors, much more tendency to create long-term customers without the “cut-throat” pricing environment.
Vulcan: Are you excited to be starting this new chapter with Vulcan?
Linda: Very much so! My biggest driving force in joining Vulcan is the tremendous amount of respect I have for the company, as well as its employees. Together as a team, we are going to make great things happen!
Vulcan: We must now ask you a very serious question… Do you root for Michigan State or The University of Michigan?
Linda: Well, since I graduated from a boring business college, neither is my alma mater. That having been said, U of M is definitely first choice (which didn’t work out so well in the last 10 seconds last weekend).
Vulcan: Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
Linda: I love the outdoors, especially if it involves water, and when I can get out there, the golf course. The bad part about Michigan is our summers are entirely too short!
