Jackie Keane is a sales and safety professional with over two decades of experience in industrial sales, focusing on safety and risk management solutions. She has a passion for helping companies develop strong safety cultures, keeping their employees and customers safe each and every day.
After college, Jackie travelled the world as a flight attendant based out of Newark, NJ. While her time flying the friendly skies was short-lived, she found her passion for workplace safety on September 11, 2001. While she wasn’t in the air on that tragic day, she was in NYC and helped front line responders get water and dust masks as they worked desperately to save lives in the rubble.
Jackie began her industrial sales career with Carter CAT Machinery which provided the opportunity to learn about the various safety challenges in the construction industry. She was soon recruited to join Safety Kleen, a leading supplier of environmental services in North America. After growing sales by 65% within her first year, she was promoted to Territory Account Manager for the state of Maryland, working with the largest manufacturers in the state to provide safety and risk management solutions. Her success there led to an opportunity to join the largest North American safety supplier where she currently works today as a Manufacturing Account Manager in Virginia.
Jackie’s experience has proven that businesses with strong safety cultures are the most successful as they invest in their people first. She looks forward to continuing to work with organizations to develop their safety and risk goals as an Associate Coach with DPC.
Jackie resides outside of Richmond, VA with her husband Jim and sons Will and Max. They enjoy traveling and spending time swimming in the pool with their dog Oliver.
