Hello, and thank you for your consideration. I have attached my resume, and

also will give you some background information on myself. I am located in

Central Pennsylvania. I am looking for a career opportunity in Sales

Management based out of the East coast. To tell you a little about me, my

family and I moved to PA from California in November of 2004, because of

its family oriented atmosphere, and we have a lot of family on my wife's

side, and many cousins here that my boys are able to hang out with. They

absolutely love it here. There have been a lot of changes to get used to

from the weather, to the rural setting.

I have many years of sales experience, as well as Regional and National

Sales Management experience. I am very interested in a career opportunity

where I can grow with the company, make a difference, and to take my

territory and the company to the next level. I currently am the Eastern

RSM for Penn Globe. I am in the process of hiring reps throughout the

region. My job is to take a relatively unknown to the National spotlight,

featuring our LED product line. I have secured a 60k Job in State College,

and am close to closing a 300k plus job in upstate NY.

My experience in Management includes, introducing new products to the

field, training my representatives and co workers in all aspects of the

product, from marketing, to implementation to the technical aspects. I have

experience in hiring sales people, training them and keeping them motivated

in our product line, to ensure success. I am able to give convincing

articulate public presentations one on one, or in group settings. Products

that I have sold have been high end, so it has been necessary to sell based

on the features, functions and benefits of the product, as there were many

competitors with a much lower priced product. I have worked the trade show

circuit, from set up to tear down, to working the booth. I really enjoy

working trade shows, as well as all aspects of the sales process.

To keep sharp, I attend sales seminars such as Brian Tracy, and have

attended Professional Selling Skills, Core, and Professional Selling Skills

Applications training. In these classes, I learned how to implement selling

skills for different products, as well as specific to my products. I have

strong organizational skills, and communication skills both written and

oral. I like to take a solutions selling approach, and find out how my

company can be the solutions provider for the customer.

My goals are to work for a quality company with a good reputation, high end

product, and make it a long term career opportunity where I can grow, and

contribute for many years to come. If accepted for this position, I am able

to start immediately.

Thank you for your consideration.
