My name is Mark and I have been an employee with Discount Ramps.Com since May of 2002. I am a part-time Sales Representative among other duties with the company. I work full time for the City of West Bend Fire Department as a FF/Paramedic. That is how I became friends with and eventually worked for the founder of Discountramps.Com, Joel Lederhause.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in advertising and marketing from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. I also hold a 2 yr Associate degree in Fire Science from Fox Valley Tech College and hold various other certifications related to the Fire Service. Along with being a Paramedic, I am also a Hazardous Materials Tech., Scuba trained, and an ACE certified personal trainer for the Fire Dept. I have been with the Fire Dept. since July of 1997.
I love working at Discount Ramps for various reasons. It is a very laid back but still productive work environment. Since Joel was also a Firefighter, he has remained very flexible with my schedule of when I am able to work. It has been interesting seeing the company grow from 2002 until now. I have recently been giving the challenge of procuring a GSA contract for Discount Ramps.Com, which has been both rewarding and challenging. I also enjoy answering customer’s questions and helping them find solutions to their loading problems-whatever they may be.
I am married to my lovely wife, Samantha, for almost 16 yrs. We have two children, a son Gavin who is 15 and daughter Storey who is 12. I like sports, fitness, and am an avid bow hunter. I spend most of my off time with my family–either hunting with my son or at various sporting events my children are in, which include wrestling and gymnastics.
I joined the Discountramps.Com team in 2002 because Joel’s business was growing and he wanted to hire people he trusted and would work hard for him. I could not think of a better part time job than working for Discount Ramps.Com. If I was not a Firefighter and did not love doing that job, I am sure I would work at Discount Ramps.Com full time. The company is evolving, expanding its product line, and always poses new challenges and opportunities to its employees.
