BIO: By Invitation Only — Ronnie Klein — Long Island, NY

Published on December 2, 2014

BIO---Ronnie-KleinRonnie Klein has been a Field Sales Consultant at the Henry Schein Long Island, New York Center for fifteen years. Ronnie’s greatest achievements include being the first recipient of the Henry Schein Total Solution Provider award and remaining in the top 5% consistently for fifteen years. For six years Ronnie has consistently been the top producer for private label sales and in 2009 was number one in Dexis sales for the northeast region. Ronnie has also spent six years at Dale Carnegie Institute conducting sales and management training classes.

Ronnie has learned that determination and hard work are the keys to success in a territory he says, “Has a lot of competition, and a large differentiation between all scopes of dental providers from low income insurance practices to high-end Park Avenue practices.” Henry Schein customers tend to gravitate toward Ronnie because of the confidence he exudes. Most people notice Ronnie’s confidence, but don’t realize he’s also very sensitive. He cares about providing exceptional service to customers, and believes if you help people get everything they desire, in return you’ll receive all you wish for.

Before his days at Henry Schein, Ronnie enjoyed a carefree childhood filled with vacations to Disney World with his parents. He respects his parents for teaching him the importance of integrity, confidence, and determination. Ronnie’s father was a well respected owner of a dental supply company and taught him a tremendous amount about the industry. Ronnie’s mother, Florence Klein, was ranked number 159 in John Sarkett’s book, 201 Extraordinary Comebacks. Sadly Florence recently passed away but her legacy of love and strength continue to live on.

Ronnie enjoys going on cruises with wife, Laurie, and their four children, twenty-four year old Andrew, twenty-one year old Ross, nineteen-year old Hallie, and sixteen-year old Zachary. Even though Ronnie loves down time, he admits it’s not easy to relax when you’ve become accustomed to a busy schedule. Ronnie does rest easy when he refers his clients to Straine Consulting, though. According to Ronnie, having Straine Consulting as a coach is, “Invaluable to my customers because most dentists are not experts at running a business.   Those who are open to a coach are the ones who are more successful.”
