In a continuing series of blog posts to introduce our Account Management Team, we recently sat down with industry veteran Account Manager Linda Sullivan.
Linda has been in “the jewelry business” her whole life, first working for The Robbins Company then moving to New York to work for The Michael C. Fina Company. In 2002 Linda was looking to move back to the Attleboro area and Dion was lucky enough to grab her on her return.
We asked Linda what she liked the most about her position. Linda replied that she works with a lot of distributors that ask her to partner with them in working with their clients. Linda is able to build with them new recognition and incentive programs unique to each company. Often times she feels like a “personal shopper” in that she is asked to find one-of-a-kind cool ideas that will excite the award recipients – not just offer up standard out-of-the-box award gifts. She works closely with our in-house design department to stretch the design envelope with new features and functionality in custom jewelry and awards.
Linda also really enjoys meeting new people at the various shows Dion exhibits at throughout the year. If you have ever spoken with Linda, you know that she is a “people person” to the extreme. She never travels anywhere that she doesn’t come back with more friends and stories!!
Outside of work, Linda is an avid golfer and master baker. She has gotten the factory to do her more than one favor with the promise of her world-famous brownies!!! She is also one of the few women at Dion to have won the Edward A. Dion, Sr. Scholarship Golf Tournament. Linda’s other passion is travel. She is always looking for new places to explore and doesn’t miss a chance to visit her winter home in Florida whenever she can.
If you haven’t spoken with Linda yet, give her a call. She has a wealth of experience and will help you come up with unique ideas that the award recipients will love!
