Alpine, UT (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
Jewel Kade is pleased to announce direct sales industry leader, motivational speaker and author, Pam Herbert has joined the artisan jewelry and décor direct sales company as Vice President of Sales. Herbert will lead the growth, training and business support for Jewel Kade’s nearly 5,000 Stylists across the United States and Canada.
Throughout Herbert’s more than 30 years in the direct sales industry, she has made invaluable contributions to some of the world’s top direct sales companies. Most recently Pam has authored several e-books on the “how to” of direct selling, has been a nationally sought-after direct sales speaker, and served as a consultant to industry executives.
Previously, Herbert was National Sales Manager for Lindt & Sprungli. There she opened the direct selling channel for the 165-year-old chocolate company, developing the compensation plan, promotional materials and sales force training. While at Creative Memories, Herbert served as Vice President of Sales, overseeing the training and sales support for tens of thousands of consultants. At the Longaberger Company, Herbert had a distinguished career holding several of the company’s most senior sales positions over a career that spanned more than a decade of service and included building a field organization of thousands of consultants, with sales representing 12% of the company’s total revenue.
“In our nationwide search for Vice President of Sales, it has been important to me to find not only an exemplary leader, but an exemplary person, as well,” said Janet Kinkade, JK Founder, President & Designer. “We have found that in Pam, and we are excited that she was willing to leave her public speaking career to focus on the success of our Stylists. Pam shares the same passion reflected in Jewel Kade’s mission – reminding women everywhere of the power within. We are looking forward to the experience, insight and inspiration Pam will bring to the company.”
“Jewel Kade’s most valuable asset is the group of women we have representing our company as Stylists,” said Brett Blake, JK Chief Executive Officer. “Therefore, finding the right person to hire as VP of Sales is perhaps the most important decision we could make right now. We have turned to Pam because she is not only adept at all levels of sales leadership and training, but she is the kind of person who cares for the success of each Stylist. That matters deeply to us, and we are thrilled to find a partner in Pam.”
