"As a sales executive for Sentry Safe I have had the pleasure of working with Rick Dousman and members of his sales rep agency for 28+ years. They represented our company and sold our product lines to a multitude of national and regional chains and distributors.

Rick and his team consistently foster extremely strong customer relationships by employing their vast experience and understanding of the marketplaces that they serve.

Rick served our company well throughout our association. He and his group grew our revenues, profits, and distribution channels through hard work and skill. He served us in many ways: sales representative, trusted associate, advisor, and mentor. Rick's honesty, integrity, ethical values, and strong work ethic are paramount to his success and through his leadership and influence, these values have permeated his entire organization.

I highly recommend Rick Dousman and his team to any company that requires the services of an effective and dedicated sales team which possess a deep understanding of the competitive world of retail sales and distribution."
