Chief Executive Officer
Shannon Sexton, founder and CEO of StateLine Steel, LLC is no stranger to hard work or the steel business. With both parents in the steel manufacturing industry, her father – a tube mill manager for over 30 years, and her mother – a freight scheduler, she cut her teeth in a household where steel ruled nightly dinner conversations and late night calls from the mill were the norm.
Upon graduation she began her career in sales with a national printing company where she received high marks and sales awards. Although she excelled in the position, she knew the steel business is where she belonged. Shannon eventually took an entry level position with the company her father had been a part of for so many years.
As the company grew, so did her knowledge of the steel industry. Her beginnings as a receptionist were short lived, as she was quickly promoted to purchasing agent for one of the largest farm and agriculture manufacturers in the U.S. As the purchasing agent, she learned to handle steel set-ups, processing, and logistics challenges. She worked closely with quality control team leaders and metallurgists, personally conducting and assisting with tests when needed. At the end of her first year, she was again promoted, to purchasing manager, and lead a department with over $80 million dollars in purchases per year, with over half being raw steel.
After a decade, she left her manufacturing family and started a short term with a steel service center as a sales representative. During that time, she learned more of the business and knew it was time to start her own company to better serve the customer ~ StateLine Steel was born.
“Steel Sales is about serving your customer. Every customer is important, no matter how large or small the order. Save the customer money – when they succeed, we will succeed.” ~ Shannon Sexton
