J.T. Eaton has hired Doug Frano as the new national sales manager for its sanitary supply division.

Frano, 51, most recently was national sales manager at S&S Car Care in North Canton, Ohio. His responsibilities with J.T. Eaton include growing sales in the janitorial and sanitary supply marketplace, recruiting additional sales representatives and building partnerships with distributors. His degree in chemistry helps him easily explain the technical benefits of J.T. Eaton’s extensive line of chemical solutions to customers.

In addition, Frano will assist with J.T. Eaton’s professional pest management division. The two divisions have recently seen a unique overlap with the rise of bed bugs in hotels and other institutional accounts.

“Doug is a great addition to our team,” notes Gary Schlosberg, national sales manager for J.T. Eaton’s pest control division. “His expertise, professionalism and enthusiasm fit well with our goal of helping our customers protect public health.”

“I am glad to be part of the team at J.T. Eaton – a company that has been an innovator in the pest control industry,” Frano says. “I was attracted to the three generations of family leadership and progressive attitudes, along with great product guarantees to ensure customer satisfaction. It’s a company that demonstrates the willingness to listen to customer needs and respond positively to changes in the markets we serve.”
