Acsellerate Expands Marketing and Sales Teams with Industry Veterans

Rapid Growth and Dealer Adoption Drives Expansion

Alexandria, VA—Thursday, March 25, 2010  The industry leader in on-demand sales intelligence, Acsellerate Solutions, has appointed two industry veterans to lead their sales and marketing initiatives. 

Amy Brown was named Director of Sales and will drive the overall sales process and growth plan for the organization.  Allyson Szablewski has joined the company as the Director of Marketing and Communications, responsible for developing and implementing the overall marketing and public relations strategy.  The addition of Brown and Szablewski will mobilize the company’s growth initiatives and provide additional support for their rapidly expanding customer base. 

“We are excited to add Amy and Allyson to the Acsellerate team,” says Jen Johnson, Vice President and Founder of Acsellerate.  “Their industry knowledge and hands-on experience using Acsellerate's analytic and reporting tools will be an asset as we provide new, valuable solutions for our customers to reach their sales, margin and growth goals." 

Amy has an extensive background in the office products industry, bringing more than 15 years of experience to Acsellerate and its customers.  Amy was most recently a consultant for independent office products dealers, implementing sales processes and enhancing margins with organizations across the country.  She was also a successful sales manager for a large distributor in Ohio, where she was an avid user of Acsellerate. 

Speaking of her new role, Amy commented, “I am thrilled to work with an innovative technology leader at a time when so many exciting things are happening with Acsellerate.  We are launching our much anticipated CRM solution this month, and strengthening alliances with strategic partners.  I look forward to working with the Acsellerate Team to transform the way businesses analyze their data and customer relationships.”

Allyson joined the company to enhance their marketing, communication and public relations efforts domestically and internationally.  She recently was responsible for sales and marketing for an independent dealer in the New York area and was the Northeast Division Sales and Marketing Director for S.P. Richards. 

"With Allyson on board, Acsellerate will significantly improve our marketing, communication and growth initiatives," said Steve Sabatini, Founder and President of Acsellerate.  "Allyson has extensive knowledge of the office products industry from both the dealer and wholesaler perspective, and brings a wealth of experience to our team and customers.  We are excited she decided to join our team."
