John Bailey, ARDEX Americas Government and Military Sales Specialist, retires at the end of June after nearly 21 years of service. He began his ARDEX career as a Sales Professional for North and South Carolina. Over the years, John’s strong work ethic and great relationships with local distributors, architects, general contractors and flooring contractors made him a trainer and role model for rookie ARDEX sales professionals. As business in his region grew, he was promoted to Team Leader of the Carolina-Virginia Sales Team.
In 2009 the ARDEX Government & Military Sales Team was formed. Bailey, a retired major of the US Air Force (USAF Special Operations and Logistics), was appointed as the very first ARDEX Government and Military Sales Specialist for the Southeast. He was instrumental in opening this large, previously closed, market sector for his Southeast sales team.
John’s ARDEX career included many years of extensive travel, and special thanks to his wife Barbara for her patience and encouragement during his tenure. ARDEX Americas thanks John for his years of professionalism, commitment and service, and wishes him best of luck on the next phase of his life.
