Mark Bus, National Sales Manager of ATAS International, received a Metal Construction Association Triumph Award at METALCON in Baltimore. He was recognized as being an “Industry Young Mover and Shaker”; someone who demonstrates excellence, creativity and initiative in his or her business or profession.
Jim Bush, Vice President of Sales and Marketing stated, “I have had the pleasure of watching Mark mature over the years to a young and emerging professional; not only within ATAS but also in the industry. He has earned the respect of the ATAS sales team, as well as peers and management, through hard work and a sound decision making process. Mark is also fully aware of industry initiatives and association activities and brings those into daily communications with staff and customers.”
An ATAS distributor, Allan Brock of Brock Associates, said, “During my forty year tenure in the commercial metal roofing and siding industry, I have rarely crossed paths with a young professional as competent as Mark Bus. I have seen Mark successfully evolve from an inside technical sales person, to a regional product representative, to management. At each level, he radiated professionalism along with impeccable product and technical knowledge. It’s been a pleasure dealing with an individual as capable as Mark.”
Robert J. Bailey, AIA, CSI, CCS, LEED AP, Specifications and Constructability Specialist with IKM Incorporated, also recommended Mark Bus for this prestigious award. “Mark makes it a point to understand the people who are specifying and purchasing ATAS products. As a new product rep in western Pennsylvania, he quickly became involved in various CSI (Construction Specifications Institute) chapters. It was clear to me that Mark knew in order to be prepared for a leadership role in ATAS, he first needed to understand the industry itself and establish important contacts and relationships there. Mark is a great example for other young sales professionals.”
