News from Palmer Holland regarding some personnel changes attracted the most reader attention last week (Palmer Holland Expands Roles and Positions of Business Teams): “Palmer Holland recently announced expansions in roles and personnel to its commercial teams. John Outcalt will be transitioning into the newly created role of principal management director, in which he will be responsible for the principal side of the CASE business. As he approaches the completion of his tenth year with Palmer Holland, Outcalt’s tenure, which includes account management, subsequently business management, and most recently sales management, has provided well-rounded experience and context to step into this new role.

“Closing in on seven years as an account manager in the Southeast United States, Brad Przebieda will transition to the CASE team’s regional sales manager for both the Central and Southeast regions. Since moving to Charlotte, Przebieda has consistently posted year-on-year sales growth across both the Carolinas and Northern Virginia, leading within the region and across both the CASE team and the organization as a whole.

“The CASE team has also added four new account managers to its sales team: Brian Ulrich, Albert Chytil, Jose Murillo, and Tyler Fraker.”
