Seth Simpson

Name: Seth Simpson

Title: Regional Sales Manager - South

Department: Industrial Sales

Month/year joined Bender: November 2012

Degree: Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Engineering

Through high school and college, Seth worked in restaurant and operations environments. After college he was employed in a job where he designed and built traffic light cabinets for Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. It was at this time he realized that although his degree was in computer engineering, he found the “electrical” aspect of the job much more exciting. After a year or so of being in the DoT business he decided to move on to more diverse work, which is what he found with Bender.

When he first joined Bender, his responsibilities were mainly in the technical support and quotations role. As that role developed he became more involved in the commercial aspect of the company. His role began to become a heavy blend between interfacing with customers and internal departments. This lead to his appointment into the Applications Engineering Manager role. In November of 2019 he accepted the role as the regional sales manager for TX, LA, MS, AR and OK and moved from Pennsylvania to Houston, Texas.

He has been with Bender for 8 years, and every single year his favorite thing at Bender remains the same: the people. He interacts with nearly every department within Bender Inc. and says it is very comforting to know that he will receive top level assistance anytime that he has a request. He considers many of the people he work with close friends.

In his free time he enjoys distance running, playing with his two dogs (one Cardigan Welsh Corgi and one Australian Cattle Dog Mix) and dabbling into the exciting world of video games. He is also an avid food lover and enjoys doing live food reviews and VoDs.

The  Iso685  and  EDS  are Seth's favorite because it's one of the most robust products that is applicable for a variety of applications. It's feature-packed, price competitive, and can reduce fault finding time from hours/days to minutes. The first visit he ever went on was to an energy plant where they had spent days trying to locate a ground-fault (this is a common occurrence). They purchased the iso and EDS combination and were able to locate the ground fault in a fully automated manner. Seth thrives on helping customers save time and money, and with this solution, he's able to do that.
