Petersburg, Va.-based Virginia Abrasives, a leading manufacturer and supplier of construction abrasives to the rental equipment market, expanded its company sales management team, and reorganized the sales management effort into four geographic regions: Northeast, Southeast, Midwest and West. In an effort to provide better service to its growing list of nationwide customers, each region is now headed by a regional sales manager.

Terry Balke is based out of Milwaukee and is responsible for sales throughout the Midwest.
Anne Harris lives in Connecticut and manages the Virginia Abrasives sales effort in the Northeast region.
John Keith works out of his Raleigh, N.C., office and heads up the company’s Southeast region sales.
