Clifton, NJ. (September 30, 2008) – Mike Graff, president of Sandy Alexander has promoted Sharon Pratt to Vice President, Human Resources for SandyDirect, Sandy Alexander’s St. Petersburg, Florida direct mail division (formerly known as MGA). Sharon had been human resources manager since 1989, responsible for all aspects of employment, employee relations, benefits, training, wage and salary administration and payroll.
