About Dustin Brooks

My name is Dustin and I’m the Vice President and Director of Sales at Triton Incorporated, headquartered in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA. I thoroughly enjoy what I do, the people I work with, and the company I get to represent throughout the world. Our company works with contractors, architects, consultants, property managers, and building owners from coast to coast in the U.S. and we currently have operations on every continent. The awesome part about my job is I get to tap into the knowledge of people from all corners of the Earth who have been roofing and waterproofing for decades! I hope that I’m able to pass on the great wealth of knowledge I get to receive from them everyday.
