Company Driven By Customers and Marketing
Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MISeptember 6, 2012
Pros: mba-quality training in marketing, employee development

Typical day involved monitoring product orders and shipments to wholesale/ chair account / military warehouses. Additionally track employee reported visitation of retail outlets and activities performed.
Monitor product promotional expenditures versus budgets weekly. Visit territories with employees to witness application of market strategies and note results.

Company was a laboratory for ideas of product development, marketing and promotion.

Hardest part of job was contacting retail customers in rough urban areas with vehicles filled with (easy convertible to cash) cartons of cigarettes.

Enjoyable part of job was representing company at public events like NASCAR, Ebony Fashion Fair, Vantage Senior Golf Tournaments.
