GET TO KNOW WILSON TOOL INTERNATIONAL
ASSISTANT BUL – PUNCHING SALES DESK
In April 2013, Stephanie Petermann joined Wilson Tool International on the punching sales desk, in a technical support role. Stephanie’s welcoming demeanor and her capacity for product knowledge have led her to her current role: Assistant Business Unit Leader.
“We make sure we’re setting the customer up for success.”
In her seven years with Wilson Tool, Stephanie has seen some impressive things. She’s seen the extraordinary, like the company president flying a hot tool to California over the 4th of July Holiday – but she’s just as impressed with day to day operations. “I’m most proud of how quickly we can find a solution for a customer that’s in need…we really work together to find a viable solution for the customer.”
Last winter, during a particularly bad snowstorm, Stephanie lost her wedding ring while clearing snow from her car. “It was the end of the day, people wanted to go home, and I lost my ring in a foot and a half of snow.” With a smile, Stephanie recalls the search effort that ensued. “People from applications, marketing, HR, people from the shop, the sales desk…all helping to sift through snow. It took over an hour, but someone actually found it!” “We look out for our customers, but we also look out for each other.”
A true Minnesotan, Stephanie grew up going to the lake and likes to spend time on the boat with her husband, son and daughter. She also enjoys golfing and snowmobiling, where she’s sure to wear a glove on her ring-hand.
