Woodbury, NY (PRWEB) November 17, 2013
MerchantPro Express (MPX) announced today the hiring of First Data veteran sales executive Brian Sullivan to head up MPX Michigan, MPX's newest and fastest-growing merchant services sales hub. Sullivan spent the past 15 years growing an impressive client list for First Data, predominantly in the quick-service restaurant and select emerging markets. In addition, he has been consistently recognized as one of Michigan’s most effective merchant services bank relationship managers, specifically enhancing his bank partners’ ability to acquire new commercial accounts and retain them through value-added merchant solutions.
“Brian brings so much to the table,” Chris Briller, MPX’s President and CEO, said. “He’s not only a proven sales talent. He's also demonstrated that he can bring real value to large retailers and QSR restaurant chains, which is evidenced by his historically strong retention rates in a very competitive environment. In addition, Brian has the polish and professionalism to build a team and manage high-level referral relationships. This comes at a time when we see exponential growth opportunities in the Michigan market. The timing of Brian’s availability couldn’t have been better. This is a real coup for MPX.”
Sullivan expressed similar sentiments. “The timing is perfect for me professionally,” he said. “MPX is offering me the chance to shape and grow this market, and has committed resources to do whatever it takes to get the job done right. With MPX, I benefit from all of the resources I had in my previous job, but with the additional benefits of pricing flexibility and added functionality to offer Michigan merchants. I am in a position to offer value to merchants that they haven’t yet seen in this market.”
MPX introduced Sullivan as its Managing Partner and Director of Sales in Michigan effective immediately. Sullivan, based in Grand Rapids, adds to MPX’s already strong presence in Michigan, with offices in Lansing, Detroit, and Grosse Pointe.
