ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Pulsafeeder announced that Valerie Sutton has been appointed new regional sales manager. In this Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based role, Sutton will work primarily with distribution partners to support the installed base and also to help grow Pulsafeeder’s chemical metering and water treatment businesses across municipal and general-industrial markets.

Sutton is well-versed in the design and application of chemical feed pumps and systems. Prior to joining Pulsafeeder, Valerie earned a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Penn State University. For the last 24 years, she has worked at Pulsafeeder in a variety of Application Engineering roles. She has extensive experience in the application and quotation of chemical feed (positive displacement) and dynamic pumps, including diaphragm metering pumps, centrifugal pumps and gear pumps.

During her tenure at Pulsafeeder, she has developed productive relationships with nearly all of Pulsafeeder’s channel partners. Throughout the years, Sutton has also worked with direct customers, OEMs, engineering firms and contractors.

In her new regional sales management role, Sutton will concentrate on specific Pulsafeeder distributors located in the eastern half of the United States. She will work with the sales channel to drive Pulsafeeder specifications for the PulsaPro and Eclipse pumps - in both the municipal and general industrial markets.

“Valerie knows Pulsafeeder’s products, culture and most importantly - our channel partners - as well as anyone in the company, and her mix of technological expertise and business acumen provides a perfect fit for what our channel partners need,” said Pulsafeeder’s director of sales Gary DeWolf. “We’re all looking forward to working with Valerie in this new role to grow our business across multiple market sectors.”
