Tacori Hires New Territory Manager for NorthEast
TACORI HIRES NEW TERRITORY MANAGER FOR NORTHEAST
Tacori Sales Team Continues to Grow
Los Angeles, CA – September 5, 2012 - Tacori, the renowned fine jewelry designer known for exquisite platinum and diamond rings and uniquely detailed jewelry, has hired Mr. Robert Graziano as the new North Eastern Territory Manager.
Graziano joins the growing Sales Team at Tacori as part of the new structure put into place by President of Sales & Marketing, Paul Tacorian, and brings the total count of Tacori Territory Managers to sixteen. In February of this year, Tacori announced the elimination of the role of the “Sales Rep” and created the three-dimensional role of “Territory Manager” in order to focus on concentrated territories of approximately 35 accounts per Territory Manager.
Says Paul Tacorian, “Tacori is dedicated to the premise of focusing more time and attention on retail partners through a healthier ratio of accounts-per-Territory Manager. Our new concentrated territory system of 35 accounts per Territory Manager contrasts with the old system of Sales Reps who may have had 70-100 accounts per Sales Rep. We are hiring specialized Territory Managers like Robert, who are trained to sell at retail, at wholesale, and who know how to market successful events. He will be a great addition to the NorthEast.”
Graziano’s impressive career within the luxury watch and jewelry industry spans over 15 years. During a nine year tenure at Breitling USA, Graziano held multiple roles within the company, where he fulfilled his passion for watches as the Aftersales Department Manager, and later, as the Breitling USA Sales Southeast Regional Manager.
In 2007, Robert joined luxury mobile phone company Vertu, a division of Nokia, where he served as Vertu’s East Coast Sales Manager for more than five years. At Vertu, Graziano was instrumental in the creation and revolution of “luxury mobile phones” as a modern luxury niche segment within the watch and jewelry industry.
“Robert’s proven track-record of consistent annual increases in sales through building retail partnerships make him an ideal addition to the Tacori Team,” concurs Stephen Alexander, Tacori SVP of Sales. “His attention to detail earned an impressive increase of ‘sales turn’ within Southeast Retail Jewelry Partners carrying Breitling, and as an innovator in the Vertu luxury market, he proved himself able to create successful selling tools, retail events, and able to work with high end retail partners such as Tourneau. We are thrilled to welcome Robert to
