SALT LAKE CITY — Oct. 29, 2020 — Utah Scientific, a world leader in providing mission-critical equipment to content creators, distributors, and broadcasters, today announced the retirement of George Wicker after an illustrious career in the broadcast industry spanning 30+ years. Wicker has served as a territory manager for Utah Scientific for 11 years, most recently as Southeast territory manager. Michelle Maurice is returning to Utah Scientific as Southeast regional sales manager.
“Working with the outstanding Utah Scientific team and selling state-of-the-art products made my experience here an absolute pleasure,” said Wicker. “I know I am going to miss the daily activity, but Michelle is the ideal professional to take over, and she will do a great job taking care of our customers.”
Dave Burland, Utah Scientific’s president and CEO, commented, “George has been instrumental in revitalizing the Southeast territory. It is tough to lose a prized member of our team, but his time here was valuable and greatly appreciated. We’re looking forward to a smooth transition between two excellent salespeople, both of whom care deeply about their customers.”
Brett Benson, vice president of sales for Utah Scientific, added, “We consider ourselves lucky to have worked with George, and now to have the opportunity to work with Michelle again. In her prior time at Utah Scientific, she advanced from technician to one of the most successful salespeople in our company’s history. I believe customers in North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas will appreciate Michelle’s professionalism and deep experience with our products and the marketplace.”
Reporting to Benson, Maurice will be based in the Salt Lake City office and will participate in industry-related events in the Southeast region.
