Who We Are

Premier Technical Sales is one of the leading technical Field Representatives in the South West. Originally founded under Youngewirth and Olenick, we have been servicing Commercial, Medical, Military and Space customers in the AZ/NM territory for over 21 years. As you will see, the companies we represent are all complimentary with each other, which is one of the keys to our success. This allows for incredible lead generation, as well as being laser focused on the entire system block diagram and not just one portion. We pride ourselves on not only having in depth knowledge of the products we represent, but our customer needs as well. Premier works with our Principals and OEM Engineers from conceptual designs through production. We have worked very hard to build up the reputation of being one of the best in our fields and thus how we came up with the name PREMIER.

Jeff Beard, CEO

I started my career in RF/Microwave in 1984, while working with Integrated Microwave (IMC) as a Engineer Technician. After three years, I moved into Sales Manager roll (with IMC) and managed all of the Reps nation-wide until 1990. I was then recruited by Piezo Technology to be their Director of Sales for the Western Region, where again I managed Reps for an additional 4 years and successfully grew our business. Opened Y&O AZ (covering AZ/NM) in 1994 to Jan 1st of 2016.  I have now purchased the AZ/NM territory from Y&O, while still maintaining the same list of Principals.
