Our newest series "Meet Our Team" has introduced you to our C.O.O. Clint Worley, our Account Manager Laura Mills, and our Finance Manager Susanna Burt. This week we are featuring our Director of Sales, Pete Ervin!
What was your experience with eye health before starting with Focus Vitamins? I was a Territory Manager for Synergetics/Baush + Lomb Retina for the Mid-Atlantic region. Sold instruments, laser probes, lasers and other capital equipment and disposables into the OR. What was your first job? Custom fitted disabled folks (para and quadriplegics/pediatric and adults) for wheelchairs and seating systems. What city/state do you call home? I was born in Washington D.C. but grew up in the Hyattsville/College Park area. For the last 20 years I have lived in Huntingtown and Owings Maryland northern part of Calvert County. Do you prefer your vacation to be at the beach, in the mountains, or in a city? Beach vacation but have enjoyed the mountains a fair amount of time too. What is your favorite quote? “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people." - Eleanor Roosevelt What is your ideal Saturday? Mostly spending time with our four kids in the various sports they participate in. Meal times and traveling or visiting friends and or family. What person, alive or deceased, would you most want to have dinner with? Both my deceased parents. In particular my father because he had a unique way of approaching things in life due to his studies and influence studying to be a Catholic Jesuit priest for a year in his early adult life. He would always joke with me and my five other siblings about why he and my mom had 6 kids…cheap child labor to do all the chores around the house and yard. It’s true!! My mom was a saint in raising me and my three brothers and two sisters---she always seemed to put us first when it came to buying clothes or having a little something extra for you when heading out to a party or gathering with friends-lots of patience!!!. They must have done something right because we all still like each other and gather together for several events throughout the year to celebrate various events in life. Lots of great memories. Thanks mom & dad-you were and will always be the best.
