Relationships Made in Sioux Falls Opens Door to Sales Career
In 1987, a father and his son formed a partnership with Peterbilt Motors Company that has functioned and prospered for 30 years. In its early existence, The Larson Group has dedicated itself to its employees, and its employees dedicate themselves to the organization. Sometimes even for the 30 years it’s been in business.
Val Breitag, a salesman at TLG’s first location Peterbilt of Springfield, is one of them.
Perhaps it was his friendship with the Larson family during their days in Sioux Falls, South Dakota that has led him to this longtime commitment.
Or maybe it was his own, unique story beforehand that threw him in that direction – like witnessing the aftermath of a volcanic eruption during a trucking job.
