ETC announces two new Regional Sales Managers taking lead in the Midwest. Bryan Yeager has been named the Midwest Entertainment Regional Manager and Katie O’Connell has been named the Midwest Architectural Regional Manager.

After graduating from University of Wisconsin-Madison, Bryan Yeager started his career at ETC in 1997 in the Quotations department. He then became a Field Project Coordinator in 1998, eventually moving to Sales as the Midwest Associate Regional Manager in 2002. A few years later, he became Midwest Architectural Regional Manager. ETC is thrilled to have Bryan now step into the Midwest Entertainment Regional Manager role.

David Hilton, ETC Senior US Sales Manager, says, “One of ETC’s most valuable assets is the relationships and partnerships we hold in the industry. Through decades of diligent work, Bryan has earned the confidence of our reps, dealers, consultants, and clients in the Midwest, and I am excited to see how he builds upon this strong network in this new role.”

Katie O’Connell first worked at ETC as an intern in the summer of 2005. She moved to a Customer Service position in the Midwest during the spring of 2006. Her tenure with Project Management for the West region started in spring of 2007. Then, she became a Field Project Coordinator in the fall of 2017, supporting ETC’s nationwide architectural efforts.

As Midwest Architectural Regional Manager, Katie brings experience from running many large consultant projects and architectural building installations, including the California Science Center and stadiums that are home to the Dallas Cowboys, the Atlanta Braves, the Atlanta Falcons, and the Minnesota Vikings. She is a member of the IES and holds a theatre degree from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

“Throughout her years with ETC, Katie has demonstrated a strong customer service focus to her work. She has both the knowledge and skillset to connect customers with the best architectural solutions for their needs. I’m excited to see the great things she’ll accomplish in the Midwest region,” says Karl Haas, ETC Architectural National Sales Manager.
