Dionne Lemer, Washington Sales Manager
I started with Safety & Supply Co. the summer of 1982 as a file clerk, later was promoted to
receptionist, then to "telemarketing;" that was before we had the wisdom to call it Regional Sales.
Over the course of my career at Safety & Supply I have been the Showroom Manager, Regional Sales
Manager, Inventory Control Manager, Operations Manager and Territory Manager. I have performed
about every function we have from to packing to purchasing and everything in between. Most
recently I served as the factory rep for our in-house brand, Vinatronics. In the 1990's I had outside
experiences working with a high tech start up and a Fortune 500 company, which helped me round
out my understanding of Customer Service and the sales process. While I attended Community College
in Seattle, I would have to say my "actual" education is from Safety & Supply Co. I know and love this
business inside and out. I enjoy the people, the industry, the products and the fact that our whole
mission is to save lives. I am proud to be contributing to the success of Mallory Safety & Supply.
