Meet Stan Pierce – Western Region Rail King Representative!
Stan Pierce is our Rail King representative located in Des Moines, Iowa. He is responsible for our western region Rail King sales including the states of Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Missouri. Stan has been with MH Equipment for the past 2 and a half years. He started here after interviewing with Darrell Randall and initially came on board as the Western Region Sales Manager promoting the Mariotti line of products before becoming involved with the Rail King line of equipment.
Prior to coming to MH Equipment, Stan spent 14 years at Cyclone Sports Properties (a division of Learfield Sports that holds the rights to Iowa State University Athletics) as a Senior Account Executive. There he sold everything from the Cyclone Radio Network, Cyclone Television Network, to
signage at football and basketball venues to gameday programs! (He got to attend a LOT of games!)
Stan’s most rewarding experience so far at MH, has been his first Rail King sale to American Crystal Sugar. Not only was it his first sale, but the fact that he was able to sell a significant piece of equipment to a customer that had only bought competitive equipment in the past was a huge win in Stan’s book. “Some of the people involved in the process didn’t even think they could buy any other brand. There were many twists and turns during the sales process but in the end we won the battle – it was an awesome feeling! In fact, a year later I sold them another new machine at one of their other plants.”
For the past 14 years, Stan has been married to his wonderful wife Jennifer. Together they have two sons – Jordan (8th grade) and Hunter (6th grade). Both boys keep them busy with their involvement in sports, 4-H, and more. They also have two dogs that keep them busy and are a big part of the family – Zoey, the miniature pincher and Magnum, the German short-haired pointer. Stan and his family like to keep busy outdoors, particularly hunting and fishing and the occasional golf outing. Jordan and Hunter took up golfing this summer, so that means more golf for mom and dad when time permits!
Stan’s favorite sports team is the St. Louis Cardinals. “They are my favorite because I grew up a Cardinals fan as my dad was a huge fan and passed it along to me. In fact, he named me after Stan Musial one of his favorite players of his generation.” The Iowa State Cyclones take a close second place as I love college football & basketball.
One person that Stan would like to have dinner with would be Abe Lincoln. “His influence on our country was dramatic and the times he lead us through had to be extremely challenging. I think his perspective on government and politics would be very interesting. Plus, I would like to see what his personality was really like.”
Finally, one thing that most people don’t know about Stan is that he won a Gold Medal in the Iowa Games for skeet shooting about 15 years ago. (Great job!)
Please join me in thanking Stan for his hard work and dedication. We look forward to working with him in the years to come.← Back
