June 7, 2019

Maroon Group, a world-class distributor of specialty chemicals and ingredients, is pleased to announce the appointment of Joel Crockett to the position of Account Manager. Joel is located in Franklin, Tennessee and will be responsible for our CASE accounts in Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama.

For more than 20 years, Joel has served the CASE markets throughout the southeast with the bulk of that experience via Henkel as an account manager, where he was responsible for cleaners and lubricants, adhesives, specialty coatings, and sealer markets. Joel has a strong history in leadership positions, executing growth strategies, and fostering collaborative relationships. He earned both a BS in Chemical Engineering and an MBA.

"Joel is a great addition to our team," Mike Maginnis, Maroon Group’s Southeast Regional Sales Manager, said. "He is a 'highly seasoned' salesman with a productive track record and we are looking forward to him growing the territory supporting our customers and Principal Suppliers.  He is based in Tennessee and will be hitting the ground running!  We're happy to have him on board."

"We were, as we always try to be, very selective in the hiring process that led us to bring Joel on-board as the newest Technical Account Manager to join Maroon Group's CASE Vertical," Willian Nicholas, Maroon Group's VP of Sales – Eastern Region, said. "Finding top talent is never easy. It takes time and you have to be creative if you want to continually raise the bar.  We believe Joel helps us do just that, while reaffirming our commitment to continually invest in the future of our business and the business of our partners, by upgrading the capabilities of our team and our business as a whole wherever and whenever it benefits the collective."
