At Daktronics, one of our core beliefs is having a sense of family within the workplace. So whenever we get a new employee we love to welcome them with open arms. Please help us
in welcoming our newest sales representative for the New England and Mid-Atlantic Regions, Courtney Ericson. We sat down with Courtney to get some background on who she is, and of course, her prior work experience.
Where are you originally from?
Courtney: I was born and raised in Taylor, PA. It’s a town of about 6,000, but is right next to Scranton. I moved to Arizona for college and continued to live out there for an additional 4 years. I just recently moved back to my hometown September of last year.
What is your previous work experience?
Courtney: I have been a part of the outdoor advertising industry my entire life. I worked with the family business that focused on static billboards. On an as-needed basis, I provided customer management, marketing and administrative service. In addition, I have years of experience in the service industry having worked in various roles.
What excites you most about joining Daktronics?
Courtney: The culture, values and overall I would have to say it’s the people I will be working with who makes this an exciting adventure. Sales jobs are a dime a dozen, but having a healthy work environment in a sales position is a diamond in the rough. I look forward to being a part of a team, and better yet, a family.
What states will you be in charge of?
Courtney: I will be the Out of Home Sales Representative for the New England/Mid-Atlantic Regions. So I will be covering Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.
What do you like to do in your downtime?
Courtney: Where do I start? I have a dog and a cat that are my world. I am currently working on making my puppy a therapy dog so we can brighten the days of residents in the local nursing homes and hospitals.
I am also a youth league basketball coach in the fall and winter for three teams and also provide private lessons during the offseason.
I’m a huge fan of dancing, and an even bigger Disney fan. I blame the Disney fascination on my mother, the real Mary Poppins. Interesting fact – I have vacationed in Disney every year of my life. I think my family alone may have funded one of their rides.
Most importantly, I love spending time with my family. It has been a long time overdue, and I am glad to be home and close to them again. It’s true what they say, “Home is where the heart is.”
Welcome to the family
