He also previously worked in inside sales for the WH Platts Company and formerly served as an IT support engineer for North Point Community Church.
Zabel commented, “It’s a pleasure to welcome Trip to our team. After working with him previously at Grass Valley, I know he’ll make an outstanding addition to our sales operation. He knows the Southeast market inside and out, so he’ll be able to hit the ground running and start having an immediate impact as we continue growing our sales presence in the region.”
