The People Who Work Here: Donald Brandly, Sales Manager

Ask Donald Brandly what makes a successful business and chances are he will answer “speed and strategy.”

Brandly is Sales Manager for Farmer Business Systems in Addison.

“My game is tennis,” Donald told us recently.  “And to be a successful tennis player, you have to be able to visualize where the ball will be two or three volleys from now,” he said.  “It’s the same in business—you have to anticipate what your customer is going to want and then quickly respond.”

Donald is responsible for the sales team and both inside and outside sales.  He also plays a huge role in the operations side of the company.

“Pricing, ordering supplies and going out on installations are all a part of my job,” Donald said.

A 10-time Xerox President’s Club winner, Donald came to Farmer three years ago from Xerox Corporate after a 12-year career.  Donald earned his Bachelor’s degree in Business from Grambling State University. He was also a five-time sales rep of the eyar award winner at Xerox.

“I enjoy people,” Donald told us. “At Xerox I was responsible for dealer management for most of the U.S.”

“He’s not kidding about liking people,” Greg Farmer said. “Donald has also worked as a medical transcriptionist for the VA and the Texas Workforce Commission.  He listens and has tremendous patience,” Greg said. “Donald is a key to our success.”
