SEATTLE, Wash. (June 5, 2013) — Atlas International, an affiliate of one of the nation's leading movers Atlas Van Lines and part of parent company Atlas World Group, Inc., today announces the creation of a new sales force that will help drive brand recognition, grow business development and create fresh opportunities for domestic and intercontinental Atlas agents.
As one of Atlas World Group's fastest growing subsidiaries, Atlas International plans to preserve its competitive edge in the marketplace while also positioning itself for profitable revenue growth and future successes. The team will be led by two industry veterans – Donna DiGiovanni and Timothy Hutton – who have nearly 50 years combined of experience in international relocation and business development. In addition, Atlas International will welcome Phoebe Hodina and Megan Hatch as account executives that will assist in all efforts.
"Atlas International has an abundance of innovative opportunities with this newly formed and enthusiastic sales force," said Jim Gaw, vice president and general manager of Atlas International. "Atlas International is dedicated to its continuous goal of generating a stable, diversified client base for Atlas and all its subsidiaries, while endlessly providing top-tier service in all areas of business."
Presently, Atlas International provides services for household and commercial moving, government entities such as the Department of Defense (DOD) and General Services Administration (GSA), military personnel and more. The sales force, led by the team of four highly trained individuals, will work to expand the Atlas International global relocation footprint.
"The four of us are thrilled to team up and work to spread the trusted Atlas International brand far and wide," said DiGiovanni, vice president of global mobility at Atlas International. "One of our top priorities is to help existing and potential new customers conduct their business in the most efficient way possible, and us launching a sales force team dedicated to that will allow us to leverage our services further."
The sales force will also engage with all Atlas World Group internal departments to modernize promotional strategies and tools, and work together to achieve marketing and sales goals.
"Our vision is to utilize all of Atlas' tremendous talent from a number of departments and regions, both nationally and internationally," said Hutton, vice president of global mobility at Atlas International. "Currently, there are several moving parts to Atlas' business sales model from headquarters to agents to individuals, and our goal is to integrate all of our success as one to create even more market opportunity for the brand."
Target new business development includes pursuing Fortune 500 companies within the United States and abroad. For more information about Atlas International, visit www.atlasintl.com.
