Division Manager

Jay has been leading the BladeCore charge since its inception in 2014.  Since day one, Jay has always tried to hear what customers are looking for and act in their best interest. His favorite part of the job is hearing the stories about the “old days” from the old-timers in this industry, working for a family-owned business, and meeting new people while at the same time retaining old friendships.  Building those relationships with customers and following through on what he says he can do is very important to Jay.

Jay lives in Duluth, MN and is a very proud husband and father of 4 sons.

Territory Manager – Midwest

Betsy has been with BladeCore for over two years now and has a philosophy that if you like someone, you will listen to them.  If you trust them, you will do business with them.  Betsy’s favorite things about the scrap and demo industry is the men and women she gets to meet along the way.  Whether it be climbing into a shredder, exploring a maintenance shop, or sitting in a customer’s office.  If you take the time, everyone has a story to tell.

Leah has been with BladeCore over two years now but is a 3rd generation scrapper.  Sales is not just about just making money. It’s about doing what’s right for the customer and making a lasting impression.  It’s about knowing when to listen and when to ask the right questions.  Leah’s motto is “No for now.” What’s Leah’s favorite thing about the scrap industry? The people!

Territory Manager – Northeast

Dave has been in the scrap metal industry for eight years now, and with BladeCore for four of those.  Before he took this job, a lot of his peers advised him that the blade business could be a rough and competitive way to make a living.  He appreciated their concern but is sure glad he didn’t listen!

Dave lives in Youngstown, OH with his wife and 2 young daughters
