August 12, 2019 – ABLOY USA continues to strengthen its distributor network and now is doing the same to its workforce. Mark Scharff recently joined the company as Vertical Market Manager for architects and engineers.
His industry experience speaks volumes. Scharff has 25 years of sales and marketing strategy program development, sales distribution and team management experience. He bridges the gap between the manufacturer and the product influencer, working with architects, designers, engineers and others to achieve specifications.
Most recently, Scharff spent five years with Geberit, working as an architect specialist in the architecture and hospitality industries for the Swiss manufacturing group.
“This was an opportunity I could not pass up. Abloy USA is a great company and one of the best in the business with an outstanding reputation,” said Scharff, who is based in the Chicago area. “I’ve enjoyed a good amount of success in the industry with architects, designers and engineers to get on spec. It’s a recipe to bring everything together and now I have the chance to do it for all of Abloy’s products and solutions.”
Scharff has created, written and presented more than 1,000 AIA CEU platforms for accredited courses as a solution to a product influencer. He is fluent in the McGraw Hill Construction data subscription, Dodge and SpecShare, and has devised manufacturer product specifications using 3-part, CAD and Revit/BIM.
