Dave Cowen - Connect's Director of Sales
It’s that time – time to get to know our fearless leader – Dave Cowen, Director of Sales.
Dave has been happily married to his wife, Tammy for 29 years and they have two grown sons – Alex (24) and Kyle (22), along with much loved fur babies.
If you can’t tell from his photos – one of his passions is hot air ballooning. He’s a commercial hot air balloon pilot, teaches lessons to student pilots, and owns three different size balloons. Last year, the Connect Works Tools Team got to experience the balloons for themselves during a staff retreat!
He and Tammy also have a small vineyard with approximately 1,000 vines of three different types of grapes – so add wine making and tasting to other things he does outside of work!
Dave enjoys spending time with his family – especially outdoor adventures including fishing, jet skiing, camping, or traveling together. He also enjoys working on home projects and cooking – ask him for his favorite recipe and wine pairing.
Dave has been in the construction machinery industry for 32 years!
He started as a mechanic and worked his way up into leadership positions. He’ll tell you he’s had just about every position imaginable in the field and has worked exclusively with hydraulic attachments for the last 20 years.
Dave joined the Connect Work Tools and Exodus team in 2017 to oversee Connect’s sales efforts in North America. Joining the team was a no brainer – the team we’ve put together is top notch and everyone has a “whatever it takes” attitude to support our customers. The manufacturing capabilities of our facility in Superior and being part of the Exodus family, we are more than just a numbered employee, are other factors that makes Connect a great place to work.
