BRANDON WARD, EMT-P AND JENNIFER STANLEY, EMT-P JOIN SOUTHEASTERN
AS DISTRICT SALES MANAGERS IN KENTUCKY AND TENNESSEE
We welcome two new District Sales Managers to the Southeastern Emergency Equipment family, effective April 4. Brandon Ward, EMT-P, will serve customers in western portions of Kentucky and Tennessee while Jennifer Stanley, EMT-P, will provide local representation in the eastern portions of the two states. Although we are excited to welcome both Brandon and Jennifer, we also experience mixed emotions as Roger Kelley, our long-time representative in these areas, has officially begun his retirement.
Both Brandon and Jennifer join Southeastern with extensive EMS knowledge and experience.
Brandon served as Assistant Director of the Office of EMS for the Tennessee Department of Health since 2014. He also held positions of either President or Vice President of the Tennessee Ambulance Service Association from 2008-2013. Additionally, Brandon has been Director of the Crockett County Ambulance Service and a Medicolegal Death Investigator, both from 2002-2014. He started as a paramedic at Crockett County in 1989.
Jennifer, a lifelong resident of Loudon County, TN, has more than 16 years experience in the emergency services industry. Most recently, she served as Assistant EMS Director for Loudon County (TN). Additional leadership experience includes managing operations for multiple emergency medical service providers.
"Because of the population growth in Tennessee and Kentucky, as well as ever-increasing requests from customers and manufacturers, we recognized hiring two salespeople for these states allowed us to provide the level of service our customers expect. Plus, both Brandon and Jennifer were exceptional candidates; each of whom came highly recommended by their peers in the EMS community," Steven Grunewald, National Sales Manager.
Brandon began his EMS career as an EMT-Paramedic in 1989. He earned an Associate of Science Degree in Emergency Medical Technology in 1990 and a Bachelor of Science, Summa Cum Laude, from Bethel University in 2011. He lives in Alamo, TN with his wife, Judi and daughter, Emma.
Jennifer became interested in a career as a paramedic while riding along on a Fort Sanders EMS ambulance in Loudon County. She was hired full-time by Fort Sanders EMS after she received her EMT license from Roane State Community College. She also earned a Paramedic license from Tri-County Community College in North Carolina.
While working in Loudon County, Jennifer was involved in numerous community events and projects, including a city-wide Safety Day for all county and city school children to learn about various safety situations. The event was coordinated with all emergency agencies and approximately 500 kids attended.
Jennifer currently lives in Loudon with her son, Michael and daughter, Katy.
