BB Industries has added two additional sales consultants in the Central Region, Ed Vredenburgh and Barry Rhodes, both with years of industry sales experience.   

“Both of these guys have successful track records in the industry, and this experience is just what we need to continue our team expansion in the Central Region,” said CEO & President Rick Stimac. 

Vredenburgh will be covering territory from Omaha down to the greater Kansas City area. He originally started his sales career in floor coverings back in 1995, and moved over to the granite tool industry in 2009 with GranQuartz.

Rhodes will be covering the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area using a well-stocked van.  

After graduating college on a football scholarship, Rhodes started his working life in law enforcement as a sheriff and then a corrections officer. After a stint in flooring, he joined the stone industry with Keystone Tools in 2008 which was later acquired by GranQuartz. Leaving GQ in 2020, Barry most recently sold stone slabs for the past year.
