Pro Tech Marketing was established in 1985 by Richard Hansen in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 1987, Terry Richardson joined the firm and became a partner. That same year, Pro Tech was appointed the representative for Shure. Over the next ten years, the company expanded with many high end professional lines.
While maintaining the headquarters in Salt Lake City, one-man offices were opened in Denver and Phoenix. These new offices contributed to considerable growth and proved to be a catalyst for success in the territory. In 2003, it was determined that the Phoenix market was too large for a satellite office. The decision was made for Richard Hansen to relocate to Arizona and establish the corporate headquarters in Phoenix. Within two years, sales in the southwest more than doubled.
In 2006, the decision was made to merge with Rocky Mountain Sales & Marketing, a company owned by Dean Hinton and based in Denver Colorado. This company provided Pro Tech with three additional employees and a much stronger presence with the Rocky Mountain commercial market. At this point, Terry Richardson retired and Dean Hinton was promoted to Vice President.
In January of 2012, and after 26 years in the industry, Richard Hansen retired and sold 100% of his interest in the company to Dean Hinton and Shane Tunnell. Dean was promoted to President and Shane to Vice President. Shane also assumed management responsibilities for the Arizona office. In January of 2020, Shane Tunnell was promoted to President of Pro Tech Marketing.
In March of 2021, Dean Hinton retired and sold 100% of his interest in the company to Shane Tunnell and Jaylon Shane. Jaylon Shane was promoted to Vice President.
Pro Tech Marketing currently consists of three offices. The main office in Arizona employs three outside salespeople, one inside person and our bookkeeper. The Denver office is staffed by two outside salespeople and one inside person. The Salt Lake City office has one outside salesperson who is supported by the staff at the other two offices.
