Ron Grant of Chipman Relocations honored in St. Louis

The United Excellence in Sales award went to Ron Grant, Chipman Relocation & Logistics in Portland, Oregon. Upon graduating from high school, Ron (pictured left) was a marine, completing two 13-month tours. From there, he worked for a number of industries ranging from managing liquor stores to owning a fiberglass repair shop. When he followed his love of outdoors to Alaska, he also found his niche – a sales professional in the moving business. Ron eventually grew weary of the cold Alaska winters and moved back to the lower 48 states. He ventured away from the moving industry to sell chemicals, but he learned one simple fact about sales that has carried him to decades of success, “selling is about relationships, so get to know your customers personally.” The moving and storage business continued to tug at Ron and in 1987 he found a home at Chipman as a national account sales representative. Thirty years later, he is now going to retire as Chipman’s top producing sales person. To stay engaged and involved in the industry, he participates in organizations such as the Worldwide ERC, PRC and PNWRC. He is also a gracious and humble mentor to several Chipman colleagues and finds time to volunteer throughout the Portland community.
