MicroCare Expands Technical Resources in Southwestern USA

New Britain, CT – Dec. 15 – MicroCare Corp. is pleased to announce that Mr. Russell Claybrook, of Austin, Texas, has joined the MicroCare team as the Regional Sales Manager for the Southwest.

“We’re thrilled to have Russell on the MicroCare team,” explained MicroCare Executive Vice President Tom Tattersall. “We expect his energy, discipline and technical skills will help our customers reinvigorate their businesses and lower their costs with fast, safe, consistent cleaning.”

Mr. Claybrook has great depth of experience in the sales environment in the electronics industry. Most recently, he was the regional manager for VI Technologies, which is a worldwide leader in Automated Optical Inspection equipment for a broad range of applications, including PCB assembly. In that post, Mr. Claybrook managed a complex sales rep network in the entire region west of Mississippi River, including Western Canada, so picking up the MicroCare network in approximately the same region should be very comfortable for him.

Prior to that post, Mr. Claybrook was a manufacturer’s rep with Southwest Systems Technology, Inc., of Plano, TX. He opened their Austin office, supported their El Paso and McAllen offices, and grew sales in his territory to $16 million annually. For many years, Southwest Systems was the local rep for MicroCare, so Mr. Claybrook brings the added benefit of knowing the MicroCare products inside-and-out, as well as our focus and loyalty to our distribution network.
Dan Sinclair, MicroCare Director of Sales, worked with Russell when he was part of Southwest Systems. “When I heard Russell was interested in MicroCare, I jumped on the telephone to nab him,” he recalls. “Nobody in Texas knows the electronics marketplace like Russell does. And, with his strong emphasis on distributor sales, he’s a natural fit with the MicroCare model of strong support for our distributor sales.”

Mr. Claybrook also has worked in commercial real estate, as a financial planner, and as a journalist, working with The Daily Texan, The Sherman Democrat and The Dallas Times Herald. He graduated from the University of Texas (Austin) with a degree in Journalism. Among his personal passions are art, outdoors, golf and rugby.

Everybody at MicroCare is very pleased to have Russell on the team. He assumed his new position on December 8th.
