Employee Spotlight!

Cell Manager: Andrew Ariey (Anaheim, CA)


It has been 3 years since Andrew left San Luis Obispo to start a career in sales at bisco in Anaheim. Andrew was hired as a management trainee and was promoted to cell manager in a year and a half. “Rejection and opposition are inevitable”, says Andrew, “But they can be overcome through unwavering efforts and diligent persistence.”


Andrew has an appreciation for bisco “where your dedication and hard-work will not go unnoticed.” One of his favorite memories at bisco is exchanging a celebratory chest bump with Trainer Cory Droege on the sales floor after booking a big order. Just this past May, Andrew had the opportunity to attend the SPARK conference, which is part of the EDS summit that management attends each year. The SPARK Conference focuses on helping young professionals in the industry network with one another and learn about upcoming trends to anticipate. Andrew enjoyed the conference and saw a “holistic depiction of the electronics industry’s future and the important role that distributors like bisco, will play in that future.”


On his spare time, Andrew enjoys spending time with his wife, running, hiking, and traveling. He roots for the Green Bay Packers, LA Dodgers, and the Brooklyn Nets. He also enjoys watching and competing in cross country, track and field and road races. His favorite book is the bible and he likes pretty much any movies with Tom Hanks or Leonardo DiCaprio.


The quality Andrew appreciates most in his fellow employees is eager willingness. “To work in sales, you must be willing to scrap and claw for every little victory,” said Andrew, “most things don’t come easy… when co-workers and employees are willing to do all this is necessary, that is when the team succeeds.”
Thank you Andrew for all your hard work and the example of persistence you set here at bisco! We are looking forward to many more years of your continued leadership and success.

Jillian Blanchard- Sales Manager
Cedar Rapids, IA

“My 6 months has been great as bisco so far. I really enjoy essentially being one of the pioneers to this bisco British Columbia office. I am able to get the full sales experience by going on outside calls right away which usually takes months in other companies. My managers Christian and Chris have really pushed me to be the motivated and hardworking sales representative that customer look forward to working with. I really enjoyed the training week at the corporate headquarters that I attended in December, it truly makes me feel like part of a family! I think bisco has given me a great start to my career right out of college. The office is growing quickly in our sales numbers and I am so excited to be part of this growth! I look forward to what bisco Industries will do to my personal and professional growth!”
Cherie Chua- Level 1 Sales
