KIM International has announced that in order to better serve the changing needs of their retailers throughout the country, they have made some changes to their outside sales force.
Bill Harrison, who served as KIM’s Southeast Region Sales Manager for the past few years, will now head the Southern Region and cover the states of Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas.
Additionally, KIM welcomes Tim Watts to their sales team. Watts will be responsible for the Southeastern Region, comprised of Georgia, Florida and South Carolina. With more than 30 years of experience running a successful jewelry store and recently calling on other independent jewelers, Tim will not only bring his wealth of knowledge, but also his enthusiasm and dedication to customer service. Tim was recently recognized by the RJO buying group as salesman of the year.
KIM also welcomes Scott Bates to their sales team. Bates will be responsible for the Lower Midwest Region, including Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and greater Chicago Metro. With over 25 years of sales & customer service, Scott will bring new and creative ideas to help retailers grow their business.
The KIM sales team will be charged with informing retailers about the company’s new products and marketing programs which include complete websites, social media and more.
