Schlosser will lead Exhibit Systems’ sales outreach as the company grows its presence in the trade show and marketing events arena. He brings a diverse background in sales management, staff training, and brand promotion and development to his new role.
“I’m tremendously excited about the opportunity to mentor and coach a very talented sales team, with a goal of delivering even greater service and value to our customers,” Schlosser said. “Sales drive the engine of every business. We create the greatest momentum by working with sales team members to help them realize tremendous professional success and personal satisfaction.“
Schlosser has led sales teams that generated hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue for companies involved in the food, sports, hospitality, golf, travel and fund-raising industries. His extensive brand development experience ranges from the earliest incarnations of vitamin-infused water products, to a line of food and snacks owned by rock ‘n roll legend Chubby Checker. He co-founded two companies that partnered with major manufacturers to carve out market space among targeted retailers.
Schlosser comes to Exhibit Systems from American Marketing & Publishing, where he was involved in both direct selling and sales staff training. His experience includes working as a solutions director with Dale Carnegie Inc., where he helped many people develop leadership skills while selling the training programs across southeast Wisconsin. An Oconomowoc native, Schlosser’s early career took him across five states in positions involving marketing management in regional territories.
“We welcome John to our team, knowing that he is well-equipped to help our sales representatives grow professionally and develop even stronger relationships with our customers,” said Dave Jentz, Vice-President of Exhibit Systems. “His unique skills will benefit our company in many areas.”
