Troit Freeland Appointed Vice President of Sales for IDEAL Networks and Electrical T&M

IDEAL veteran will oversee sales organization for network and electrical testing equipment in the United States

SYCAMORE, IL, April 11, 2013 – IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC., one of the world's largest manufacturers and suppliers of quality tools, connectors and testing products for electricians and data communications contractors, today announced the appointment of Troit Freeland to the position of Vice President of Sales of its Networks and Electrical Test & Measurement (T&M) Group in the United States. Freeland will report to Paul Finnie, Vice President/General Manager of Global Networks. The announcement follows the formation of the IDEAL Global Networks and T&M Group in January.

"I look forward to Troit's contribution to our team as IDEAL continues to evolve and transform the test and measurement landscape," Finnie said. "Our key objective is the development of innovative, competitive testing products that will place IDEAL in the leadership position in market segments we are targeting. Troit is the right sales professional to get us there, having built a long record of success in his career with IDEAL."

Increased concerns about power quality, electrical safety and network availability has heightened interest in testing devices. IDEAL has responded with new products and is expanding to reach a broader range of application solutions.

In assuming his new role, Freeland will use his proven expertise to lead sales and marketing strategies for both network and electrical testing products in the United States. IDEAL field sales and technical support staff will report to Freeland, as will personnel in a newly opened service, calibration and technical support operation in Sycamore, Illinois.

Prior to joining IDEAL in 1998, Freeland held executive-level marketing and sales positions with Hellermann Tyton and W.H. Brady. He earned a bachelor's degree from Eastern Illinois University where he double majored in Marketing and Personnel Management.
