Kimball Announces 2017 Salesperson of the Year

Kimball announces that Keith Cron, Co-Founder and President of OstermanCron, has been inducted into the Kimball Hall of Fame as the 2017 Salesperson of the Year. OstermanCron has been a Select Dealer with Kimball for 20 years and under Keith’s leadership, the dealership has become the leader in the Cincinnati market in furniture solutions.

With an unofficial title of “The Man with the Plan” OC’s leader of the pack carries the distinct mindset that a company is only as good as its people. Keith’s passion and enthusiasm for creating the perfect space to work, learn, or hang out has been the driving force behind his 30+ successful years in the office furniture industry and the foundation on which he built OstermanCron, Inc. He firmly believes that creating the best environments for others begins with creating a positive culture at OC first. OC’s vibrant team culture is grounded in hard work, respect, and honest communication. Although office furniture may not change lives, he knows that the folks at OC will. Aside from OC, Keith has a wife, Carol, of 30 years and four children. He enjoys all activities associated with family especially vacations, sporting events and concerts.

“At Kimball, we know we wouldn’t have the success we do today if we weren’t aligned with our Select Dealers, who serve as an extension of the Kimball team. Keith demonstrates the qualities of a true leader, and he and OstermanCron epitomize what a partnership truly is. Without key partners like OstermanCron, Kimball would not be able to continue our fierce evolution in the furniture industry,” states Greg Richards, Director of Dealer Distribution at Kimball.
