American Frame Corporation has hired a new Sales Manager, Ron Gratop. Gratop comes to American Frame Corporation from Accell North American, where he served as Territory Manager for seven years managing and developing the firm’s sales across the state of Michigan. Accell North American is a Seattle-based subsidiary of the Accell Group, which is based in the Netherlands. Accell is a global manufacturer and distributer of bicycles and cycling-related accessories.

Gratop, a graduate of Lourdes University with a degree in marketing, has a background in business-to-business sales, retail sales, customer service, and project management. On the creative side, Gratop spent studied art in college and has done project management and sales for a graphic design firm. Gratop’s experience is what American Frame was looking for to help implement and manage their future plans for expansion and sales growth.

“I’m most exited about our new Showroom opening in the summer of 2015,” said Gratop. “I feel it will open a whole new growth avenue for an already successful company. This new expansion will not only benefit American Frame, but also the artists and the first-time framers by offering several new resources.” Gratop went on to say, “It’s very refreshing to belong to an organization that values positive and proactive investment in its employees and the tools they use to do their jobs. I feel those values sometimes get lost in 2nd and 3rd generation companies. That’s not the case with American Frame.”

Gratop reports to Laura Jajko, President of American Frame. “I am so thankful to have Ron on our side. He brings a wealth of experience and, most importantly, a wonderful disposition and a high level of commitment to the customer and his sales team. Great things are happening here and it’s important to have strong leadership in place to ensure continued success in our community.”
