Kylie Mueller – Dedicated Account Advisor
"If you’re looking for a place to start a career, Imperial Supplies is the place for you! I started with Imperial in 2011, just days after graduating college, and I’m so glad my path led me here. For the past 11.5 years, I’ve enjoyed my position as a Dedicated Account Advisor serving customers nationwide. What I love most about working for Imperial is the company culture – finding a work environment where you feel comfortable is key. What motivates me most is building long lasting relationships with my customers…if it wasn’t for them, Imperial wouldn’t be where it was today."

I’ve held numerous roles within our sales department such as Dedicated Account Advisor, National Account Specialist, Key Account Manager and Corporate Account Manager. What I love most about Imperial is their commitment to developing team members and the ability to quickly grow within our organization. By Imperial doing this it motivates and empowers team members to come together as one team to identify innovative solutions to our customers’ challenges."
Amy DeMerritt – Channel Development Manager
"I joined Imperial in 2010 as a Pricing Analyst. Imperial’s rapid growth and market expansion has generated new value-added services we offer to customers as well as new role opportunities for team members. This growth has allowed me to hold roles in a variety of departments and build a cross functional background in Pricing, Procurement and Sales Support. As a Channel Development Manager, I am motivated to drive innovative ways to meet the customer’s goals and objectives and continue to expand our value-added services. Imperial’s “Win as One Team” culture facilitates a collaborative work environment to build both a rewarding career and customer experience."
Dane Urfer – Senior Manager, National Accounts
"I just celebrated 10 years at Imperial this year. Early on during my tenure at Imperial, I noticed the organization’s “people first” culture and opportunity to grow within the organization. I was hired initially for the Dedicated Account Advisor role, and after 3 years, I was promoted into our outside Sales Department, holding the positions of Key Accounts Manager and Corporate Accounts Manager. In 2022, I was promoted to a leadership level as Senior Manager, National Accounts. Being a part of a fast-growing organization and “people first” culture allows for career advancement like this, especially since Imperial has tools in place to help you achieve your career goals. Imperial’s culture is industry-leading because everyone wants you to succeed and is willing to help so we can all win as one team."

In 2006 I joined the Field Service department and that's where I’ve been ever since. I am now the Senior Field Service Manager of a team of 60+ Leaders, Technicians and Analysts that travel around the country to convert customers to the Imperial program. The travel aspect brought me to the Field Service department, and the leadership team that we've assembled is what has made me stay. They are some of the best leaders I have ever worked with!"
