Newport Beach, California – On Tuesday, March 5th it was announced at the Konica Minolta Dealer Conference that Copier Fax Business Technologies’ very own Kate Bluhm had won the National Demo Championship. This challenge entailed several steps, including competing in the regional round, followed by competing for the territory title in New York City, and finally the honor of becoming the Champion.
This year’s conference was held at Newport Beach, California. As part of her win for the East Coast Territory, Kate had an all expense paid trip to the conference, which included all travel accommodations, meals, and conference seminars.
Each territory from across the country had a representative competing for the ultimate title, with attendees of the conference viewing their demo videos and voting for the winner.
What makes Kate’s win extra impressive is the fact that she has only been with Copier Fax for a little over two years, yet she was competing against sales managers, and major account managers. Many of the competitors had 10-20 years of experience in the industry.
This is a title that Kate will be able to cherish forever. Additionally, as part of her national prize, Kate won a cash bonus and a trip voucher worth $2,500.
In celebration of her success, we have proudly promoted Kate to Client Success Manager, where she will be taking on more responsibilities in client training and service, as well as evolving a team of service representatives to work under her leadership.
