Bringing more than 20 years of experience in chemical and industrial gas applications to the table, Jerry Reid has been appointed Central US regional sales manager at Taylor-Wharton Cryogenics, LLC.

Having held previous positions at both Praxair and BOC Gases, Reid not only brings 20-plus years of experience but also an extensive background and knowledge of manufacturing and equipment.

Mark Fleischer, Taylor-Wharton’s vice-president of sales and marketing, said of Reid’s appointment, “Taylor-Wharton welcomes the new addition of Jerry Reid to its Taylor-Wharton North American sales team. With the strength of 20-plus years of experience in the industrial gas industry and his superior technical skill sets, Jerry brings to our customers the ability to address their cryogenic gas containment needs through effective solution selling.”

Reid himself added, “I am especially pleased to join the Taylor-Wharton sales team and combine my skills with their reputable products and brand to further the growth and success of the company in the central region.”

The appointment comes just weeks after Taylor-Wharton announced that Eric Rottier had joined the company as CEO and a member of the Board of Directors – and vowed to ‘reinvigorate’ the brand both nationally and internationally.
