Initially, Brian will represent DDI in the state of Iowa and parts of The Dakotas and Nebraska. Brian brings twenty years of experience in the kitchen appliance industry to DDI. He learned the dealer side of the business as he and his partner founded Hills Electronics in his hometown of Sioux Center, Iowa, in 2000. Eight years later Brian left to join Fisher and Paykel as their rep in Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. And in May of 2011 he joined Almo Distributing covering Iowa and Nebraska for the LG and Frigidaire brands. Brain’s perspective is well rounded . . . as a dealer, a manufacturer’s rep and a distributor rep.
Brian continues to live in Sioux Center with his wife Melissa and many of their six children. The Gulkers spend much time chasing their kids to football and basketball games in the fall and winter, then track meets and soccer games in the spring. Outside of that, Brian spends enjoys cooking, hunting, fishing and working with wood.
