Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 19, 2013
Drew Frank, a Division Manager with Vector Marketing Corporation, the single-level direct sales division of Cutco Cutlery Corporation, was presented with the Marty Domitrovich Triple Crown of Service award at the company’s recent Strategic Leadership Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. The award is given in memory of one of Vector Marketing’s most esteemed leaders, and is presented each year to the person or persons within Vector Marketing who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to improving the world around them through their service-oriented contributions to their communities. This is the fourth year the award has been presented.
Frank, a resident of Denver, Colorado, is Division Manager for Vector Marketing’s Rocky Mountain Division, which includes 24 territories in Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming.
Frank has been particularly instrumental in spearheading initiatives on behalf of The Front Row Foundation, a non-profit organization founded to help individuals and families who are braving critical health challenges experience a front row experience at their favorite concert, sporting event, theatrical performance or other form of live entertainment. About four years ago, Frank created a program in his division that made the Front Row Foundation part of the Vector Marketing sales experience.
“There are numerous ways that we enable our sales reps, managers, prospects and customers to contribute to the Front Row Foundation,” Frank says. He says that every presentation book contains an information sheet on the organization, which sales reps give to customers. Every representative also asks for a $1 donation to the Front Row Foundation at every presentation, and they have the ability to contribute even more by donating a portion of their commission. Managers contribute by donating $1 for every $1,000 in office sales. “It might not sound like much, but it adds up quickly,” Frank says. “Each year we raise between $15,000 and $20,000, and to date we’ve raised more than $60,000.” The division contributes even further by sponsoring local events for the organization.
Frank, whose office has led the company in sales for the past couple of years, also generously donates his time to helping mentor and train all Vector managers and sales representatives. “I enjoy teaching and coaching others,” he says. “I film all of my training videos and make them available to everyone in the company. I’ve spoken to every region either at live conferences or via conference calls.”
Frank began selling Cutco the summer after high school graduation in 2003 and continued throughout his four years at Penn State University. By the time he graduated with a degree in management and international business from Penn State in 2007, he had sold about $75,000 in Cutco, working only over the summer and winter breaks. He immediately moved to Denver to oversee his first office as a District Manager, and in 2010 he was promoted to Division Manager of the Rocky Mountain Division.
“I am honored to work with a company that teaches the importance of community service and activism,” Frank says. “Vector Marketing's core values and ethics are a perfect fit for my competitive spirit and desire to help others and give back."
