T&R Company Appoints Nicole Fielding as Northern California Sales Representative

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. March 5, 2007 – T&R Company, a well-known manufacturer of landscape tree boxes, stakes and trellises, and distributor of plastic nursery pots, has announced the appointment of Nicole Fielding as exclusive Sales Representative in Northern California. The new appointment strengthens T&Rs existing sales force covering California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Washington, Oregon and Hawaii, and demonstrates its commitment to customers in the Northern California area.
A native of Northern California, Nicole joins T&R with an extensive track record in the nursery industry. Most recently, she worked for the California Association of Nurseries and Garden Centers (CANGC) for 10 years, first as Advertising and Membership Assistant, and later as Advertising and Membership Director. In that role, Nicole set up the associations advertising and membership benefit programs, goals and budgets, and grew advertising sales along with new membership exponentially during her tenure there. Also during that time, the association grew from one publication published quarterly to two publications published monthly, in large part due to Nicoles efforts.

Nicole attributes her success at CANGC to good customer service and people skills. Growing advertising and membership at CANGC was basically just good customer service and staying on top of things, explains Nicole. Im a very good listener and I believe that relationship-building is the key to everything. Its amazing how many times people will say thank you for calling me back, when in fact, a return call should not be at all surprising! its just good customer service.

Prior to CANGC, Nicole worked in the banking industry for five years in a variety of sales positions including new accounts, home loans, and equity lines, all giving her an excellent business perspective for her new role at T&R. She also attended Chico State University, where she studied in the field of communications. She currently resides in Folsom, California.

Nicoles experience in the nursery industry and her lifetime roots in Northern California make her an ideal choice to fill this position, said Phil Guardia, President of T&R Company. I'm confident that Nicole will help solidify and strengthen T&Rs commitment in the Northern California area while continuing the T&R philosophy of service, trust and reliability on a long-term basis.

Im very excited about the energy of T&R and the opportunity to work with nurseries and grow sales in Northern California, says Nicole of her new role at T&R. I will be working with many people I already know through my ties with CANGC, so while it is a new career, I'm still in the industry I'm familiar with.
