(Macedonia)--There are times in life when we realize it's time to make a career change. For Troy Keast it was time to sit down and have a visit with his good friend and first-cousin, Russ Keast.
Troy, a 1981 graduate of Carson-Macedonia High School, and his wife of 27 years, Stacey, make their home in Macedonia. Stacey is a nurse for Blue Cross/Blue Shield. They have three grown children: Joshua (and his wife Sarah), Ryan and Brianne.
Working as an electrician and in the construction trade for many years in and around Omaha, Troy's body was telling him it was time to be open to something different if the opportunity was right and when Russ called Troy decided to listen.
Russ, already a very successful businessman near Macedonia with Keast Enterprises, was in search of someone to help him grow the sales of his vast agriculture product line. Knowing Troy would be a perfect fit, the call was made and the stars aligned for Troy to start working with Russ around one year ago.
As Russ says, Troy's been going great guns ever since! Even though the learning curve has been steep, Troy has been up to the task and enjoys representing 21 different companies selling everything from grain vacuums, feed wagons, tub grinders, earthmovers and scrapers, pneumatic conveying equipment, side dump trailers, bulk seed conveyors, flexible harrows and more.
As a matter of fact, Keast Enterprises is the #1 REM Grain Vacuum dealer in the United States.
As sales continue to grow there are a few things that Troy adheres to with regards to his customers: Always return phone calls and never lie to a customer.
Troy says it's also helpful as most of the equipment Keast Enterprises sells they also use on the Keast Century Farm.
Troy is proud to be working with Russ who he says is a very kind, fair man and one who is very good to his loyal employees.
