Prior to joining the company, Cuddy served as the regional sales manager for Klein Tools, where he captured market share and achieved significant growth by developing and maintaining strategic customer relationships and creatively promoting new products. He was also responsible for developing a successful sales team through training and coaching. Cuddy also previously served as a district sales manager with W. W. Grainger where he was responsible for accelerating market share growth and continuous team development. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from Marist College.
