Channel Marketing Group: "While we know that sales in the electrical industry is a contact support, now, perhaps more than ever, it is important to connect to generate opportunities, retain market share and possibly take share. Integrated customer engagement, and keeping it personal, are critical to taking share when there is less business out there."
electricaltrends.com Selling today requires balancing digital tools with commonsense, customer-focused precautions. Local activity, or lack of, can impact share.
DeFazio Industries will be closed on Monday, September 7th in observance of Labor Day.

RVAHub: Richmond growing faster than state and nation, new data shows
rvahub.com So far this decade, the city of Richmond has increased in population more than neighboring suburban counties — and at twice the growth rate of the state and nation, according to population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau.
The DeFazio family has been serving the electrical manufacturers representative industry for more than forty years. In 1976, Rick DeFazio’s father, John DeFazio, founded Electric Sales Unlimited in Southern California. Over the past several decades, ESU has grown to become one of the largest manufacturers representative firms in America – covering Arizona, California, and Nevada. Rick DeFazio worked at ESU from 1989 through 2004, serving in various positions throughout the company. In 2005, Rick moved to the East Coast and joined Brazill Brothers & Associates as a shareholder and Sales Manager. In 2016, Rick sold his interest in the company and founded DeFazio Industries.
The third generation of the DeFazio family in the industry include Rick's sons, Anthony and Michael DeFazio, who began their careers in a part-time role as CRM Administrators at Brazill Brothers & Associates. Their responsibilities included developing standards for effective database management, quotations and lead tracking, and spearheading a digital marketing program.
Since DeFazio Industries was formed, Anthony and Michael have served as Inside Sales Representatives and Account Managers, bringing years of experience in automation and customer relationship management to the company. Anthony and Michael have completed two years of the three-year Certified Professional Manufacturers Representative Program (CPMR®) program and will received their certifications in 2019.
