Leading contact pin manufacturer for nearly 100 years, Bead Industries, Inc., announces the addition of another fifth generation family member, Sylvia Pessin, to the family business. Bead has hired Pessin as Customer Relationship Manager, making her the third daughter to join the company. Her sisters, Jill Mayer and Leah Davenport, came to Bead in 2008 and 2011, respectively.

“Sylvia brings a unique skill set that will strengthen the future of Bead, and I’m delighted to welcome her to the team,” says Kenneth E. Bryant, Pessin’s father and fourth generation CEO.

Pessin has nearly 10 years of experience in the web marketing industry, as well as fond memories of working at Bead as an office clerk during summers home from college. She was previously an Account Development Manager at Blue Hornet, a top email marketing firm in San Diego, where she managed email distribution and quality assurance for clients there. Pessin starts at Bead in June.
