Caldwell is beginning his 15th year with RPS Marketing, where he has been working with key automotive distributors throughout California for the last three years to help grow their business with key suppliers and pull through sales out in the field. Prior to that, he spent 12 years with RPS up in the Northwest covering Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Western Montana working with key automotive and hardware customers in that territory. He works not only at the WD level but also at the installer and jobber level, meeting with them to talk about their business, what they are seeing from a customer standpoint, and what they see their needs are from their suppliers. In his free time, he is busy with his wife of 21 years, Lori, and their two boys. He enjoys working on and restoring classic cars, spending time outdoors, and playing and watching sports.
