We are pleased to announce that Dave has accepted the position of Sr. Vice President of North American Sales for XXXX in CA. He will be starting on Monday Oct. 5th by flying to Dallas that day for an industry show. XXXX is a nationally know marketer of a variety of licensed puzzles and games.
When Dave began his search, he was contacted for a similar position heading up sales for this company by a search firm, and yet he never interviewed with them because they ended up hiring someone before he got a chance to interview. Turns out, that person was more of a marketing person and didn’t work out as head of sales. This company was not one of his target companies for our calling campaign, because Dave assumed they wouldn’t need a head of sales. Another company, YYYY , was on our target co. list, but we later found out this company had been purchased by XXXX. Through his networking, someone had referred the President to Dave because he knew this other person wasn’t working out as head of sales.
After several conversations over about 6 weeks, Dave accepted this position and is very happy that he will not need to move from his CA home. This position will also lead to becoming SVP of Worldwide Sales, which Dave is quite excited about. Below are the specifics on the new position:
TITLE: Sr. VP of No. American Sales
COMP: $182k base plus 93k bonus ($275 total pkg) plus 40,000 equity shares.
