SALISBURY, NC – Shat-R-Shield, Inc. announced the retirement of Pam Erickson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, effective March 31, 2021.
Erickson started her professional career working at Layne-Western, a Water Well Drilling company, based in Kansas City, Missouri, where she held various positions within the company for a 10-year period. Erickson’s 15-year career in the aerospace industry with DIT-MCO International in Kansas City, Missouri offered her the opportunity to work in various roles within their engineering, sales and marketing departments.
Erickson’s career in the electrical industry began in May 2006 at Milbank Manufacturing in Kansas City, Missouri as Director of Marketing. Then in November 2010, she joined Affiliated Distributors (AD) based out of Wayne, Pennsylvania as Vice President of Marketing. Erickson joined NSi Industries headquartered in Huntersville, NC as Executive Vice President of Marketing in June 2014 and was employed there until November 2017 when she accepted the role of Vice President of Sales and Marketing with Shat-R-Shield headquartered in Salisbury, NC.
Bob Nolan, Shat-R-Shield’s CEO, commented, “Pam has been a top notch team leader and contributor to Shat-R-Shield. It’s been an honor to work with Pam as well as a lot of fun. She will be dearly missed.”
According to Karen Clouse, Shat-R-Shield’s President, “Pam came to Shat-R-Shield at a time when we were still at the tip of the iceberg when it came to establishing our company as a well-known LED fixture manufacturer. Under her leadership, guidance and amazing drive she has greatly enhanced our sales and marketing, and relentlessly driven product development to help us finally realize our vision. We are now well known as a specialty LED fixture manufacturer, offering unique and differentiated products that no other LED manufacturer has in their portfolio. We would not be here as such today if it weren’t for Pam. Many among us know that Pam has had a prestigious career in the electrical industry and we, at Shat-R-Shield, are so proud she chose us to be her final accomplishment!”
Erickson, who resides in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, said she’s excited to join her husband who has been retired for nearly two years so she can spend more time with him, her children and grandchildren. She said she is also looking forward to taking extended scuba diving vacations without her computer in tow.
Erickson reflected on her upcoming retirement by saying, “While retirement is something we all work for as a reward for the many years of hard work, it is also bittersweet to see this chapter of my life come to an end. There was a time I wasn’t sure I would ever want to retire, but 2020 has given me a new perspective on work and family. My 15-year career in the electrical industry has afforded me the opportunity to work at four well respected companies and I’ve gained much more than industry knowledge. The many friends I’ve made over the years in this industry will remain near and dear to my heart and I hope that our paths cross again soon.”
