Prior to joining WCC as a full-time professor, I was an evening adjunct professor for 19 years while having a successful corporate professional sales career with Coty US, Inc. (Division of Pfizer Pharmaceutical). During my tenure (23 years) at Coty US, Inc./Pfizer, I was a recipient of numerous awards, including the prestigious Pfizer/Coty President’s Club. Received the distinct honor of being the number one sales representative an unprecedented five times. Additionally, received many district, regional & national awards during my business-to-business sales career-too many to mention.
Recipient of two of the most prestigious professional selling designations in professional selling: SMEI’s Certified Professional Salesperson designation and SMEI’s Certified Sales Executive Certification – both certifications must be approved & earned by SMEI’s board each year.
