Behlen has had a Regional Sales Manager in Idaho for many years, along with several Behlen builders throughout the state. However, this is the first office that’s been established. At this time, there are three full time Behlen Partners in Progress (employees) working from this location: Regional Sales Manager – Tru Connealy; Western Region Sales Manager – Sheryl Cattau; and Engineer – Zach Walker. The intentions are to increase the staff of Customer Sales Representatives and Engineers in the near future.
