Steven has seen a lot of growth at Smith over the years – not just within the company, but also within the positions he has held. As a loyal Smith employee, Steven believes that what you put into your company and your job, you get back.

What do you do at Smith?

I’m a Senior International Account Representative, working for Smith’s distributor sales division. I sell components to domestic and international distribution customers, plus I’m also responsible for locating and buying excess from OEM customers.

What do you love most about your job?

I love the camaraderie and relationships I’ve gained throughout the years. I’ve met some of my best friends within these walls, and they come from all around the globe.

In what ways has Smith challenged you?

I would say it’s having to constantly recreate yourself due to this endlessly evolving industry. You have to be able to adapt and redefine yourself in this business, or it will leave you behind. Although I’ve been here a while, I can still learn something new every day.

Do you have a favorite tech gadget?

I’m not a gadget guy, personally, but I would have to say my iPhone. I would love to share with you all how savvy I am with my iPhone, but Siri and I aren’t on the best of terms. I can’t live without her so I just deal with it.

What has been your most rewarding experience at Smith, so far?

I’ve had many rewarding experiences, and – honestly – there are too many to name. I can try and sum this question up by emphasizing the significance of personal growth. When I started with Smith, I knew very little about anything outside my comfort zone. I soon realized that, in order to be successful here, I would have to embrace the unknown and replace my fears with a desire to take on this new world. They say you are a product of your environment; I’d say that’s true.
