New General Manager for Burton M. Reid Sons
Mr. Harry Furry of Springfield, Illinois, midwestern sales representative for Burton M. Reid Sons for the past ten years, has been promoted to the office of General Manager of that firm.
Mr. Harley Follmer, former Office Manager, has been advanced to the position of national Sales Representative, to contact watchmakers and jewelers, promoting among them general sales and merchandising methods, as well as to help them with their individual problems.
Two additions to Burton M. Reid Sons growing staff of salesmen are Mr. Lawrence Knox of Springfield, Illinois, and Mr. Frank Miles of Peoria, Illinois.
Mr. Knox will cover the territory formerly covered by Mr. Furry, and Mr. Miles will go into the Iowa territory which was formerly covered by Mr. Adrian Ackman, who has been transferred to the Indiana territory where he will assist Mr. Henry Schmidt.
These changes mark another milestone in the steady growth of Burton M. Reid Sons. Starting in 1913 as a manufacturer of special staffs, this firm now has seven salesmen and over sixty office and factory employees.
