MyBinding,com, a division of Information Management Services, LCC, announces the promotion of Shawn Slotkin from Account Executive to Inside Sales Supervisor
HILLSBORO, OR, February 3, 2011 – MyBinding.com, one of the country’s leading online retailers of document finishing equipment and supplies, recently announced that one of their account executives, Shawn Slotkin, has been promoted. Slotkin is now serving as Inside Sales Supervisor. His promotion was announced in a company e-mail on Friday, January 28, 2011.
“I’m excited,” said Slotkin. “I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for quite a while.”
Slotkin has been with MyBinding.com for almost three years and originally started out as a customer service representative. He was later promoted to his previous position as an Account Executive, so the company has promoted him twice. As an Account Executive, he exceeded his monthly $100,000.00 sales quota nine times in 2010. Shawn has been instrumental in helping MyBinding to land several large national accounts and is regularly involved in larger projects and opportunities.
“Shawn has been a valuable part of our team since he began working for us in 2008,” said Cory Ware, co-owner of MyBinding.com. “He has always shown a strong willingness to learn, grow, and lead. We’re incredibly proud of him.”
Due to his promotion, Slotkin now faces new tasks. He is still active in sales and he is also working with the customer service team to handle escalated calls. Slotkin supervises a team of seven people including customer service representatives and inside sales representatives. In addition, Shawn supports the efforts of MyBinding.com’s outside sales representatives in achieving their sales goals. Overall, he is ecstatic about the opportunities that his new position has to offer.
“It’s an honor to work for a company that has a family atmosphere and rewards hard work,” said Slotkin. “I really enjoy working here and am driven to succeed in my new role as Inside Sales Manager.”
Internet retailer MyBinding.com is helping out local schools by donating thousands of boxes of binding supplies.
HILLSBORO, OR, February 1, 2011 – MyBinding.com is one of the country’s leading online retailers of document finishing equipment and supplies. The company recently devised a way to help schools in the Portland area: donating boxes of plastic binding combs.
“We knew that schools were facing tight budgets,” said Mike Bocanegra, the Vice-President of Operations and Distribution for MyBinding.com. “We wanted to help and donating binding supplies seemed like the right way to go about it.”
The company has already distributed thousands of boxes of steel blue plastic binding combs to various Portland-area school districts. They include Portland Public Schools (8,000 boxes), Clackamas Education School District (9,000), Evergreen School District (4,000), David Douglas School (4,900) and Hillsboro School District (4,000). The free combs were advertised on Craigslist and MyBinding contacted local school officials directly.
Although most of the school districts accepted combs in pallet quantities, a number of individual schools and teachers requested smaller numbers of combs for use in their classrooms. With the massive budget cuts facing many local schools, principals are facing the reality that money may not be available for these types of supplies in coming years. With that in mind, some schools have requested a 2+ year supply of combs and have found places to store them.
“We’ve already distributed almost 30,000 boxes and we’re prepared to donate approximately 40,000 more,” said Bocanegra. “All schools need to do, is to give us a call and come pick them up.” We started out with more than 50 pallets of combs to donate and we still have more than half remaining. The total retail value of the combs is between $140,000 and $200,000.
The plastic combs come 12 to a box and are available in two sizes: 3/8” and 1/2”. The combs can be used for a variety of purposes including making workbooks, binding assignments and allowing students to publish their own literature. If schools are interested in the supplies, they can contact Bocanegra at 503-640-5920. The company’s office and warehouse are located at 1800 NE 25th Avenue, Suite 15 near the Hillsboro airport.
MyBinding.com, a division of Information Management Services, LCC, recently announced the promotion of Jeff McRitchie from Director to Vice-President of Marketing
HILLSBORO, OR, January 14, 2011 – MyBinding.com, one of the country’s leading online retailers of document finishing equipment and supplies, recently announced that Jeff McRitchie, the company’s Director of Marketing, has been promoted. McRitchie is now serving as the Vice-President of Marketing.
“We are proud of Jeff and all that he’s done for the company,” said Cory Ware, co-owner of the company. “He’s been a real asset to us and it seemed like a promotion was in order.”
McRitchie’s promotion was recently announced at the company’s annual Christmas gala which took place in Sunriver, Oregon. McRitchie, 31, has been with MyBinding.com since 2003 when the company did direct sales only. He launched the company’s website which now features over 27,000 products.
“I’m very proud of this opportunity,” McRitchie said. “This is a great place to work and I’m lucky to work with some really talented people.”
McRitchie has seen his list of duties grow over the years. Not only does he build relationships with vendors and customers, he continues to keep an eye on the company’s website and is involved with search engine optimization and marketing, promotional videos, and social networking. McRitchie also supervises a marketing team comprised of ten people that help him with website and content development. The team includes writers, a graphic designer, and a web developer.
MyBinding.com has increased its online visibility in the past year. Last spring, the company received attention from The Oregonian newspaper because McRitchie and his two writers produced enough content to publish blog posts around the clock for a full 72 days. The end result was 1,728 posts about the company’s wares including binding machines, paper shredders, and laminators. The company has also recently added new products to their main website including reinforced and synthetic paper, plus a selection of Swingline paper shredders. New products will be added to the website throughout 2011.
“This is an exciting time for us,” McRitchie said. “And I’m glad I get to be a part of it.”
