PITTSFIELD — If Bruce Springsteen was born to run, then Dan Proskin was born to sell.
When Proskin was younger, the Pittsfield native sold cameras and shoes. He now designs office spaces and sells furnishings as president of BBE Office Interiors, a business that was founded 70 years ago and has been in the Proskin family since the late 1980s.
Dan caught the sales bug when he was 10, while watching his father, Rob Proskin, run the business. Proskin learned so much, so fast, that, two years later, he felt comfortable enough to show customers around the showroom.
