Clearfield Fortifies Sales Presence in Mexico

MINNEAPOLIS, April 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clearfield, Inc. (NASDAQ:CLFD), the specialist in fiber management and connectivity platforms for communication service providers, today announced German Garcia has joined the company as its Regional Sales Manager for Mexico. Garcia, who resides in Mexico City, joins the company with the dedicated responsibility of building the company’s presence in the country.

“German joins the company with a broad background in telecom technology and the various needs of the client community,” comments Cheri Beranek, president and CEO of Clearfield. “While the valuation of the dollar has hindered our growth in non-U.S. markets in recent quarters, adding German to our sales staff represents our ongoing support of this market and our commitment to long-term success in this region.”
