ERA's 49th Management & Marketing Conference

Dave Winner and Todd Ford recently attended ERA's 49th Management and Marketing Conference in Austin TX. The conference was sold out, and for good reason: the content and speakers were excellent. We have many ideas and practical tools we are putting into use today and in the coming months. We were also joined by six of our top Principals: Cornell Dubilier & Illinios Cap, CTS, E-T-A, Laird, Triad, and ZF who are Manufacturing Members of ERA. We heard great feedback from all of our principal attendees, too. Thank you all for attending, investing your time and money, to continue strengthening and improving your chosen sales network.

James Brooks presented '50s Tribute Les Paul

SACS proudly recognized Account Manager James Brooks in January as he was presented with a new Gibson Les Paul '50s Tribute Electric Guitar. Gibson is a major account for James so it is proper that he have one of their quality instruments for use while playing in his church band. James consistently performs at a high level and it a highly valued member of the SACS team. ROCK ON JAMES!
