Long-time Cardinal Scale Regional Sales Manager Ron Ricketts will retire tomorrow April 16 after 32 years with the company. Ron started with Cardinal Scale in Oct. 1982 as a service tech and then eventually worked his way up into branch sales and then service manager roles. He would go on to hold national sales manager and regional sales manager positions. Ronnie was sought after for his knowledge about Cardinal’s WINVRS vehicle recording system and often held training classes and helped set up the software for dealers.
“Ron Ricketts has represented Cardinal Scale in the highest of standards for many years,” said Cardinal Scale Vice-President of Sales Fred Cox. “From his first position of service and support for our Atlanta branch offices to his nationally- and internationally-recognized sales support and training to our valued distributors, Ron has promoted the Cardinal brand name to thousands of people. His product knowledge and ability to relate this information to customers has been a key to the success of Cardinal Scale and our high quality products. We have high gratitude to Ron and his commitment to Cardinal Scale for 32 years.”
Over the years, Ron installed and serviced Cardinal Scale products and held training sessions all across the USA, Mexico, Canada, Iceland, Poland, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Egypt, Ireland, Nigeria, Great Britain, and Jamaica.
