Episode # 1: David Radiloff: Navigating The Globe Through International Business
Welcome to our inaugural podcast with our guest, David Radiloff. David leads us on a personal journey from the late 1970’s, when modern international sales and trading was in a pioneer phase, to the present. David was an early exporter to China, the Soviet Union and the Eastern Block, and to many Middle Eastern markets. He has the adventure stories to prove it!
David currently serves as the Vice President of Commercial and Industrial Sales for Mueller Industries.
David is a graduate of University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill with a BA and MA in Political Science/International Relations. He spent his early career establishing a contract-manufacturing network throughout Latin America for a large textile manufacturer and managed its entire global sourcing network. For many years thereafter he oversaw international sales for Troxler Electronics, a world leader in radio-isotopic test equipment for the construction industry. David managed international sales in over 130 countries for Troxler. In the 1990’s he entered the copper tubing industry, first with Halstead Industries, and then with Mueller.
