Sticker that says "new hire"

Meritech, the industry leader in fully-automated hygiene technology announced the appointment of Will Eaton as its VP of sales.

Eaton, the former VP of national accounts at Checkers Safety Group, is an accomplished leader with a proven history of success in growing market share for small to medium-sized businesses.  

As the VP of national accounts at Checkers Safety Group, which Justrite Safety Group, Des Plaines, Illinois, acquired in January 2018, Eaton quickly and consistently surpassed sales goals while completing and integrating nine acquisitions in just 15 months. The company achieved 19 percent growth in 2017 — six percent above the average growth trend for the industry. Prior to his work at Checkers Safety Group, Eaton served as the director of sales and marketing at Accusonic Voice Systems, Brentwood, New York, where he increased annual sales via strategic account acquisitions while simultaneously developing and launching a new website that generated significant growth within nine months.   

“Meritech understands that proper hand hygiene is the first critical step in stopping the spread of harmful pathogens and infectious diseases,” says Eaton. “Meritech’s innovative technology guarantees proper hygiene where we need it most: food and medicine manufacturing, nanotech and medtech manufacturing, healthcare facilities, restaurants— as well as the public spaces where we congregate, like amusement parks, airports, malls, cruise lines, and food courts. I truly believe that Meritech’s unique solutions can make the world a healthier and safer place for us all, and I am eager to continue building on the momentum they have already created to actualize that vision.”

Eaton succeeds Alison Smith who served as VP of sales since 2017.
