Hunt Valley, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/15/2012 -- Marketing a small business and closing deals with potential clients is as much an art as it is a skill. And while the sales and marketing professions may still lack the respect and recognition they deserve, the business leaders whose companies benefit from the efforts of skilled sales and marketing professionals, like Next Level Technology’s Director of Sales Scott Adelman, certainly do appreciate them.
Adelman joined Sales and Marketing Executives International (SMEI) in 2011 as a Gold member. Membership in SMEI allows Adelman to better serve Next Level Technology and the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. communities as he carries out SMEI’s mission of being “dedicated to ethical standards, continuing professional development, knowledge sharing, mentoring students and advancing free enterprise,” and the organization’s three-part vision:
The Profession: SMEI is the acknowledged thought leader that advances the contribution of the sales and marketing profession to the success of organizations worldwide.
The Member: SMEI is respected by its members, their companies and the business community for its dedication to, and practice of its Five Founding Principles™.
The Community: SMEI embodies ethical sales and marketing professionals who contribute to their communities.
Adelman has upheld SMEI’s high standards so well that he recently received the honor of being appointed to the board for the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. areas.
“I’m excited,” said Adelman. “I’ve always believed in being straight with clients and potential clients, even if it means they’ll go somewhere else. And I also believe in giving back to the community. So, I’m really honored that SMEI has recognized that by making me a member of the board of the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. chapter. I’m really looking forward to taking on this challenge.”
Membership in SMEI allows sales and marketing executives like Adelman to meet and form lasting friendships with other sales and marketing executives as well as take advantage of webinars and workshops that help them stay up to date with changes in the profession.
