James Barron

Regional Sales Manager, Tire Market

How would you describe your role at Bartell?

My role at Bartell is to develop new and maintain existing customer relationships. In addition, I work with internal departments to ensure all orders are received and fulfilled.

What would your customers say about you?

I believe that I have developed a number of important customer relations throughout my time at Bartell. As far as what they would say am someone that they trust and enjoy working with.

If you could master any skill what would it be?

This is a tough question to answer. For the majority of my life basketball has always been at the top of this list. Recently, in addition to still enjoying basketball (for the last 21 years), I have started to appreciate do-it-yourself projects. I purchased my first home and have thought of enough DIY projects for the next three decades. I am currently finishing off my basement and throughout this project, I have learned that I really enjoy woodworking. I am very new to it but I hope to master it someday.

What’s the most interesting thing you’ve read?

Reading was my favorite past time growing up. I did recently start reading the Game of Thrones series. I am almost through the third book. I watched the HBO series before I starting reading the books so this may be a biased opinion but I would say the depth and creativity that went into writing these books makes them the most interesting thing I’ve read in a very long time.

What would you name your boat if you had one?

Great question! I have owned a boat since 2011, two to be exact, and neither has been named. The first one was a small red speedboat. I wanted to name it “THE RED BARRON” but it had an outboard motor and there wasn’t enough space for decals. The next boat that I own will be named before it hits the water Third Time is the Charm!
