Madison, Wisconsin (January 6, 2012) - Michael F. Clear, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of HSA Home Warranty, is pleased to announce several key promotions in the HSA sales team.
Sue Stites has been named Western Regional Vice President. Sue, who has worked with HSA Home Warranty since 1995, has been instrumental in the growth experienced in many of our Midwest markets. As Western Regional Vice President, Sue will bring energy and leadership to the sales team in the western portion of the country.
Teresa Hedlund has been named Eastern Regional Vice President. Teresa has been involved in the real estate industry for more than 30 years, with 10 of those years at HSA. In that time, Teresa has taken on many leadership roles, training and nurturing our sales team. As Eastern Regional Vice President, Teresa will continue to spur growth in the eastern half of the country.
Greg Long has been named Regional Director. Greg joined HSA four years ago as a Territory Manager in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania market. Greg will be responsible for leading the sales team in the Pennsylvania and Ohio markets.
Nichole Taylor has been named Territory Manager. Nichole joined HSA three years ago as a Territory Service Representative in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania market, working with Greg Long to serve HSA's large client base in that market.
As HSA Home Warranty continues to experience strong growth in its key markets, these promotions set the essential framework to facilitate further success in the coming years. "In a static real estate market, we continue to bring on more clients, write more warranties, and increase our capture rate. We experienced a 12% growth in 2011," says Gary Lombardo, Executive Vice President.
The promotion of these individuals will enable HSA to continue to provide the same great service that is contract holders and real estate partners currently enjoy. "We have an outstanding sales team," states Mike Clear, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. "Sue and Teresa are strong sales leaders who will inspire and support our team, allowing us to focus our continued growth in our most successful markets."
