UPS Veteran Thompson Joins Gold Bond Team
Chase Thompson has left a 20-year career with the Atlanta-based United Parcel Service (UPS), to join Chattanooga, Tennessee-based Gold Bond Inc. in the sales division. The announcement was made by Mark Godsey, the company's president.
Thompson graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a bachelor's degree in business administration and marketing. His career with UPS began on the loading dock while attending MTSU. While at UPS, Thompson served as area sales manager for the southeast region and as sales and marketing performance manager. He joins Gold Bond as a vice president of sales with responsibility for Inside Sales and Customer Service.
According to Godsey, “Chase Thompson was an asset to us as a UPS business partner bringing both ideas and solutions to our processes. We’re excited to know that he is bringing that same level of insights to our sales culture.”
Thompson stated his sales philosophy is based in understanding customer need and becoming a true business partner. “It’s a mindset that causes us to ask better questions, listen actively and respond with solutions. It’s customer-focused rather than product focused,” said Thompson.
“Chase brings solid sales training,” said Lisa Newell, vice president, who will continue to focus on national accounts. She added that working with Thompson will allow the company to pursue their mantra for the year of bringing more to the table for customers.
