Kelley Altland joined Bell Laboratories in September as a Technical Sales Representative for the New England territory where she represents Bell products to distributors and pest management professionals (PMPs) in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and upstate New York.
Altland works with Bell distributors on the use and promotion of Bell's rodent control products and advises them on developing new markets for products.
