"Vince was great to work with. He always had a positive attitude and those who reported to him respected him and the way he held his title of Regional Sales Manager. He was very knowledgeable of programs and was always willing to help if there were any questions about a deal. I would happily work with Vince again if the opportunity ever presented itself..” October 28, 2008

He stood out amongst his peers as a leader that would always take a concept and turn it into an action plan that would result in increased sales and company profitability. I can honestly say that Vince is one of the most influential and capable sales people that I have worked with in my 15 years in the sales industry and any team that would like to see profits go up would be considered lucky to have him aboard.” October 24, 2008
