Zanders Sporting Goods Adds Scott Sterner to Sales Team

SPARTA, IL. (May 30, 2019) – Zanders Sporting Goods, a national wholesale distributor located in Sparta, Illinois, continues to grow by hiring Scott Sterner for their Sales department.

Scott earned his associate’s degree in criminal justice and first response from YTI Career Institute-Lancaster. Upon graduating, he worked in law enforcement and EMS. Utilizing his education and experience, Scott took his career in a new direction and became the owner and manager of a firearms retail store. Ultimately, it was this strong background in firearm sales that led him to Zanders.

“Unfortunately, due to a change in zoning restrictions, I was forced to close my shop,” Scott recalls. “I enjoyed working in the firearms industry so that’s where I focused my job search. Zanders’ has an impeccable reputation in the industry so I reached out to them in regards to a sales position that was available, and I am thrilled with the opportunity.”

When asked what he likes best about working at Zanders, Scott replied, “For me, it’s all about helping customers. I know what it takes to run a firearms store successfully and I like being able to share my knowledge with our dealers. Zanders’ customer service is second-to-none and I take great pride in being a part of that.”

In his free time, Scott enjoys spending time with his family and going to the shooting range.
