Like so many others in recent years, Arik moved to the Denver area in search of an active-outdoor lifestyle. Originally from a small town in central Wisconsin, he completed his degree at the University of Wisconsin and was promptly recruited to Green Bay as a manufacturers sales representative. Arik spent the early part of his career consulting as a manufacturers rep alongside contractors and distributors in order to bring transparency and results to facility managers in the design community. His work ethic and results were recognized and Arik was quickly promoted to the NYC/North Jersey territory. While there, his skills were sharpened by New York’s competitive environment. His peers and superiors commend his integrity and attention to detail in assisting architects, designers, facility owners and managers in the design and utilization of their interior space.
Arik brings his experience as a manufacturer representative and client success management to Rocky Mountain Reps and is excited to grow and develop his network in our market.

Born and raised in rural Western New York Jake attended Cedarville University in Ohio for Business Management. After securing his degree he started his career in the Operations Analyst Development program at JP Morgan Chase & Co. Moving into an associate role he worked on multiple projects ranging from process improvement to crisis management. A desire for a more face to face role pushed him to seek a job outside the walls of a cubicle. In 2019 he started working in Kentucky as an independent sales representative for Firestone Building Products as well as other complementary roofing product manufacturers such as Georgia-Pacific and Metal-Era. Yearly hunting, hiking, and snowboarding trips to the Western states developed a desire to move closer to those activities permanently. With a proven track record of success he is eager to put his skills and knowledge to use with the RMR team.
