Eagle Marketing was founded by John Shimota in 2000 after working for Primus Marketing for 2 years. What sets Eagle Marketing apart from other manufactures representatives is the experienced management and regional coverage to manage key distribution accounts, end users, engineers and contractors. We offer extensive knowledge of the Central Office and Outside Plant Network for the Broadband, Telecommunications, Municipality and Utility markets. With the features and benefits of Eagle Marketing, this allows the manufacture’s we represent a reduction in the direct sales force needed to cover this market. And because of our existing relationships and the other lines represented in this market, it allows us to be in front of those key decision makers more often than if only one line was represented.
States covered include: Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Upper Pennisula of Michigan, Wisconsin. We are open to representing products in Hawaii. :)
Still not sure if Eagle Marketing is the right choice for you? We are convinced that our qualifications speak for themselves. Here is an overview of our top creative talent:
