Brian Hayes brings a combination of plastic materials distribution, warehouse operations management, maritime, and military experience to his role as an Outside Sales Representative in the Curbell Plastics Virginia location. His broad base of knowledge, combined with a deep understanding of the practical side of his customers’ operations, fuels his work to help customers increase production and efficiency, minimize downtime, and determine alternate materials to prevent or solve performance failures.
For example, the expertise and leadership he developed through six years of active duty in the U.S. Coast Guard informs his partnerships with customers in the marine construction, aerospace, and defense industries. From his work as an engineering plastics and materials specialist, and through the nationally recognized training programs at Curbell, he maintains expertise in various performance plastics properties and applications that benefits manufacturers of industrial machinery, food-processing equipment, and other products and components.
And on the logistics side — a benefit for companies in any industry — he knows the storage and shipment challenges his customers face firsthand from his experience as an Area Manager for Amazon, where he led a team of over 100 associates and implemented numerous process improvement initiatives.
A native of New Kent, Virginia, Brian has always felt most at home on or near the water. In his free time, he enjoys operating private vessels up and down the East Coast as a licensed captain for hire.
