St. Louis, MO – Edge Technologies has announced the hiring of Travis Prestidge as the new South Central Regional Sales Manager, which includes the states of Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Southern Illinois, Missouri, and Texas; as well as the country of Mexico.
Prestidge, a five year veteran of the machine tool industry, has a unique background in metrology and technical sales demonstration.
