His lengthy career with NHBB is seen as a major asset to the business. “Rodrigo’s knowledge and experience will enable him to respond effectively to the demand for new products,” said Mary Beth MacKenzie, Sales Manager of the Precision Division and myonic USA, “Throughout his career at NHBB, Rodrigo has been recognized by many of his customers for his exceptional service and support. I am confident he will continue to do a superb job on behalf of NHBB’s customers.”

Rodrigo is not stepping away entirely from the sales department, as he continues to support two of Precision’s strategic accounts in the medical and dental industries.
