CompUSA Opens Sales Offices
CompUSA, the CE retail chain that essentially returned from the dead last year, is expanding its operations, opening new sales offices in two U.S. states, which will employ 35 people in total.
The retailer, which is owned by Systemax, has opened business-to-business sales offices in Boise, Idaho and Sioux City, South Dakota. The Idaho office will deal primarily with government and enterprise accounts, while the South Dakota office will handle small- to medium-size businesses. The offices mark the first significant moves into the Midwest and West; the company's stores are currently concentrated in Florida and Texas.
“This new business-to-business marketing force is a reflection of our strong position and our long-term strategic expansion plans,” said Gilbert Fiorentino, CEO of Systemax's Technology Products Group. “We plan to hit the ground running with this new team of seasoned professionals, with an average of 10-14 years of experience in the industry. They are the best in the business and will assist in expanding our B2B sales efforts.”
