Presented By:
Damon Brown, CDT
Regional Sales Manager
Kingspan and Benchmark Insulated Metal Panels

Damon is a native of Arkansas, has been in construction sales since leaving the US Marines after six years of service. He joined a large floor covering sales company in his home state of Arkansas and quickly realized he enjoyed helping others through consultative selling.

Damon received his degree in business from the University of Arkansas while working full-time in sales and raising a family. Then after ten years of employment, Damon caught the entrepreneurial bug and opened his own floor covering and lighting company that grew into two locations serving over five counties. Damon sold his business interest after 15 years and once again took on the role of salesperson for a regional flooring distributor located in Houston, Texas with 100 plus accounts in his territory. The employment wasn’t a proper fit and Damon joined Kingspan in 2016 as Regional Sales Manager for Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. He also assumed the position of Regional Sales Manager for Benchmark Architectural Panels for Mississippi and Louisiana this year.

Damon enjoys working with the architect, engineer, and contractor communities and is a member of the Little Rock CSI chapter. In his downtime, he enjoys golf, fishing, and spending time with his wife and children.
