National Sales / Account Manager

As an accomplished Sales Manager in the Hardware and Lighting field, I have

developed a comprehensive national sales network of local and national

companies as well as independent sales agencies. I am looking to join an

established organization that can utilize my 10 years of National Selling

experience and relationships to expand and grow their business.

Professional Experience:

December 2002-Present The Designers Edge Inc. National Sales Manager for

an industrial and commercial lighting manufacturer. Responsible for all

retail sales accounts in the Western and Southern United States, managing

over $8 million in retail sales. Managed the entire Electrical Distributor

network in the United States, with over $2 million in annual sales. Hired

and managed 22 independent sales agencies across the United States.

Increased territory and account base every year for the past 5 years, while

maintaining and continually growing existing business. Increased sales in

both domestic and direct import business by 17% for 2009.

In 2006, organized, set-up, and implemented a national program to sell to

Electrical Distributors. This involved the hiring of independent sales

agencies and making initial sales calls on major distributors to gain

information needed for this new branch of our business. This segment,

which was a completely new endeavor for The Designers Edge, was worth

upwards of $2 million dollars in 2009.

September 2000-September 2002 World Lighting and Design. Store sales

manager for start-up upper-end lighting store with a reputation of

outstanding customer service and selection. Managed a total of 20 in store

sales people as well as 3 additional outside contractor sales positions.

Completed the ALA Certification course, became certified to sell to

lighting designers and contractors.

February 1997-May 2000 Jeske Inc. Inventory control manager/operations

manager for the five stores under Jeske Inc., including Domus, an upper end

gift and furniture store, and Greetings, a smaller gift and furniture

store. Managed inventory functions including re-orders, vendor returns, and

annual inventory. Managed new store opening at Westlake Center in Seattle.
