Clifton, NJ. (September 15, 2008) – Sandy Alexander has hired Glenn Cilimberg as Executive Vice President, Sales for SandyDirect, Sandy Alexander's St. Petersburg, Florida direct mail division (formerly known as MGA).
Most recently he was the Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Chicago area commercial printer, Berlin Industries, Inc. Prior to this Glenn served as Vice President of Sales for North American Corporation, a leading Chicago area independent distribution, fulfillment, and graphic communications company. Cilimberg has spent the past 11 years of his career in high-profile, senior management positions.
" Aside from contributing to the sales effort across all Sandy Alexander divisions, his primary responsibility will be to develop and lead a world class direct mail, media communication, sales and marketing organization at SandyDirect," according to Mike Graff, Sandy Alexander's President.
Glenn has more than 25 years of professional sales and marketing experience, with over 17 years of experience coaching successful sales teams. He believes that the sales process only begins once a need is identified, and even when there is a happy and satisfied customer, the business of selling never ends.
Glenn says, "A professional sales executive must work harder and smarter than the competition; respect the people and organization that supports his or her efforts, be honest; ethical; and never forget that earning a customer's loyalty and respect must be a constant. Customers have many choices, and no business matters without them".
A Vietnam-era veteran of the US Navy, and La Verne University, California graduate, with a BS in Business Economics, Glenn, and wife Isabel will be relocating from Chicago to the Tampa/St. Petersburg area, with their youngest of four children. In his spare time, Glenn enjoys traveling, scuba diving, exercising, and now that he will be living in Florida-his golf game.
