Home furnishings, appliance and electronics buying group MEGA Group USA has added field market managers and inside support personnel to its support staff.
Tammie Bridges joins MEGA with a 20-year-plus background in wholesale and retail appliance sales as field market manager for Indiana, Ohio and Southern Michigan. For 15 years she worked in the training division at Whirlpool Corp. Most recently, she has helped manage an independent appliance retail dealership.
For more than 15 years, Nick Breeding has helped manage his family’s successful appliance retail business. He lives, breathes and speaks the language of independent retailers. Breeding will manage the Missouri, Illinois and Iowa markets.
Mike Robinson will manage Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota markets. Experienced in both wholesale and retail sales, he brings more than 20 years of successful management to MEGA Group USA.
“'Feet on the street' has been one of MEGA’s core principles since our inception,” said MEGA Group USA President Rick Bellows. “We continue to add new members weekly. To accommodate this growth we need to hire and train more field and inside support staff."
In addition, Melissa Johnston and Neely Parker have joined the in-house support program MEGA Group USA instituted earlier this year.
“It’s imperative for our organization to make sure we are constantly available for our members to answer question, review programs, and guide them to the information they seek,” Bellows said.
