Meet the EXCEPTIONAL Metals Team Leader: Nicole Sanford

Nicole Sanford is a friendly, familiar voice to EXCEPTIONAL®Metals’ customers. As Team Leader, she is responsible for making sure that the metals team operates efficiently and estimations are delivered to customers quickly and accurately.

Longtime Duro-Last®customers may recognize her voice from the Customer Service Department where she answered questions and took orders before she transferred over to the EXCEPTIONAL Metals team. Before her time at Duro-Last and EXCEPTIONAL Metals, Nicole served as the Internet Sales Director at Hendrick Automotive in Cary, North Carolina.

Outside of the office, you can find Nicole cheering on her son Carter at his soccer and baseball games, and keeping up with her energetic daughter Keigan. When activities slow down, she enjoys camping in Michigan with her family and baking treats in the kitchen. Nicole actually won the Duro-Last Bake-Off earlier this year with her famous cupcakes, and hopes to open her own restaurant one day!

As a Saginaw, Michigan native, Nicole graduated from Arthur Hill High School and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management, with a minor in Marketing from Northwood University. 

“It was important to me to work for a company that values their employees and recognizes commitments outside of work,” Nicole said. “I’m grateful to work with such wonderful co-workers within JRB Enterprises but especially EXCEPTIONAL Metals!”
