Three Things You May Not Know About APE General Manager Tracy Foran

APE General Manager Tracy Foran

As Allen Precision’s General Manager, Tracy Foran oversees the day-to-day operations of APE and the Online Marketplace, but those aren't his only responsibilities. Sometimes he also sweeps the floors and makes the coffee. What else don’t you know about Tracy?

#1: His first job out of college was selling teeth in Alabama.

“Everybody thinks that’s funny,” says Tracy. “I was selling crowns and bridges for a dental laboratory and heard Allen Precision was looking for a sales rep in Alabama. That was 12 years ago. I transitioned to inside sales and, as we continued to grow, I started managing the outside sales reps and eventually moved into the position of general manager.”

#2: If it’s a Saturday during football season, he’s watching the Crimson Tide.

“I’m a huge college football fan, and I root for the University of Alabama, my alma mater,” Tracy says. “I also love to grill, fish, and hunt.”

#3: His favorite part of his job at APE is serving customers.

Like every good manager, Tracy does a little bit of everything around the office. “I’m the general manager or chief coffee maker, whichever one needs to be done,” he says. “I also do all the purchasing of our instruments and data collectors, so I negotiate large purchases with the vendors.”

Despite his other responsibilities, he seeks to maintain a direct connection with APE’s customers. “I know it sounds cliché, but the interaction with our customers is really what I enjoy the most. Every problem or challenge is an opportunity to make things better for them. I love being able to make suggestions for how surveyors, general contractors, and other professionals can grow their business and be more successful.”
