Salt Lake City — Eighteen sales and marketing pros were honored for their contributions to their companies during Utah Business magazine’s 2014 Sales and Marketers of the Year, or SAMY, awards luncheon Friday.
Each of the honorees has helped to grow his or her company exponentially through creative marketing campaigns and impressive sales skills. Many said they wouldn’t be where they are today without their fellow employees or their families.
“It’s all about the team,” said John David King, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Fishbowl. “They make me look good.”
Sue Bingham, vice president of marketing at Les Olson Company, thanked her father, Les Olson, for building the company she now works for.
“If there’s one person I would thank, it’s my dad,” she said.
Frank Maylett, executive vice president of global sales and services at AtTask, challenged the honorees.
“As sales and marketing leaders, our responsibility isn’t to sell more—it’s about teaching the next generation of salespeople how to be good at what they do,” he said. “That’s the legacy we’ll leave.”
