Meet Aire Guardian Sue Hoffmann

Meet Sue Hoffmann – Regional Sales Manager 

When Sue Hoffmann first interviewed with Abatement Technologies, she had previously worked as a business analyst and was completely new to the world of air quality. 

Now, nearly 20 years later, Sue is a seasoned Aire Guardian that has helped countless hospitals and contractors protect patients and staff with our world-class air filtration products..

We sat down with Sue to learn more about her impressive career with the company. 

Learning from the best

“This is my 19th year with the company. When I first started, I quickly found that it was a great place to learn from some of the very best in the field. Leadership was very hands-on, and I was able to learn vast amounts about everything from production, to technology, to finance and more. I very much enjoyed it all.”

Selling products you believe in

We manufacture powerful, high-quality, and reliable filtration products that our clients trust to improve air quality and safety in their indoor environments. Our commitment to quality is a big part of what’s kept Sue so passionate about Abatement Technologies for nearly two decades.  

“In order to be comfortable selling something, I need to believe in the product. If I believe in it, then I can sell it. That’s why our product quality is so meaningful to me. We offer some of the best in the market, and when I sell to clients, I’m confident they’re getting the best solution for their needs.”

Building strong client relationships  

Abatement Technologies is not only trusted for our technology, but also for our expertise. Our Aire Guardians ensure that each client gets a solution that’s right for their project and right for their industry. This expertise is particularly crucial in healthcare, where regulations around construction are strict and non-compliance can jeopardize patient safety.    

Over the years, Sue has built a solid reputation among hospitals, contractors, and infection control specialists as the go-to-expert for their indoor air quality needs. And for Sue, helping these clients is the best part of her job. 

“I love working with my customers. They're amazing. I deal specifically with hospitals, as well as general contractors working in hospitals. It’s so important to be knowledgeable about their unique pain points—from the risks that air quality issues pose to vulnerable patients, to the ins-and-outs of compliance with infection control standards. One of my proudest moments was when a contractor called me and said, ‘I have my first hospital job, and I don't know what I'm doing. But I was told to call you.’ And I said, ‘No problem, let’s get started!’”

Supporting employee goals, in and out of work

For years, Sue served as our National Sales Manager. She worked directly with clients, managed a large team of sales consultants, conducted training, handled budgeting, and much more. But as Sue’s priorities changed, she needed a position with the flexibility to work remotely. So, the company made it happen.   

At some point in your life, your focus becomes more about happiness than money. I was working from our office in Georgia, but I really wanted to move back to Florida, where I’m originally from. When I made the decision to move, the company offered me a Regional Sales Manager position with the ability to work remotely. Now, I’m happily living in Florida, and my new role allows me to focus on what I really love—helping my clients.”
