Triangle Printers Looks for New Talent at Graph Expo

Published on September 16, 2011

Sales Manager Allison Rickett of Triangle Printers shares that she's not only looking for new equipment and workflow solutions, but also hopes to recruit future industry leaders.

My name’s Allison Rickett, I am the Sales Manager at Triangle Printers, we are located in Skokie, Illinois, we are a commercial sheet-fed printing company and we have digital printing capabilities and a wide range of service offerings.  

I’m here today at Graph Expo really to take a look at what’s going on, what different things are out there that I can use as a sales person to further enhance the value that I’m bringing to my clients.  I’m looking at equipment capabilities, I’m looking at paper, sub straights, finishing.  We do a lot of different things at triangle.  We have a wide range of services.  I’m you know, interested in sort of whatever is here that I can use to come back to my company to then talk to clients and say, “Guess what?  I saw this really interesting thing at Graph Expo.  We’re going to be able to talk with this to you.”  

I’m also here in my Sales Manager role to try to get a sense of whether there… what we can do to bring some additional sales people to our company.  So I’m kind of looking at the educational section here to see about interns and some opportunities that might exist there for us to bring some young people into our industry.  You know, we’re a company 56 years, I’ve been there 26 years and the industry changes faster than we can possibly keep up with.  So that’s another reason why I’m here to kind of get an overview of different things going on in our industry, things people are talking about, techniques that are happening in print, in technology and you know, what we can do to bring some younger interested people into our industry.  I think it’s a big challenge for us these days.  So that’s another reason.  

I’m also looking at some seminars that I may want to attend just to, again, get further knowledge on a particular subject matter that, you know, when you’re a sales person that’s really hard to keep up and read everything and listen to every webinar and go to different opportunities.  We’re lucky, in Chicago; we have many, many resources in our area.  But it’s still difficult.  So I’m really trying to see where I can enhance my knowledge base and bring that back to my sales force.
