Smith & Associates Opens Denver Office
HOUSTON, TX – (July 22, 2011) – Smith & Associates, a global leader in electronics distribution, today announced the opening of its Denver sales office. The opening of the Denver location comes on the heels of Smith’s expansion to new locations in Singapore and Taipei less than five months previously. As Smith’s thirteenth office, the new Denver location will strengthen the already-sturdy presence Smith has in international and domestic regions and help the company continue to meet customers’ needs.
The Denver office will be led by General Manager Anthony Chilelli. Chilelli, who currently manages Smith's New York office, joined Smith in 2003 and has helped grow the company's domestic customer base in the Northeastern Region of the country. Day-to-day office operations will be overseen by tenured Smith employee Tami Wisenfeld, who will be temporarily relocating to Denver from Smith's New York office for the first year of operations. With over fifteen years of procurement experience and knowledge of Smith's rigorous quality programs and procedures, Wisenfeld will be an invaluable asset to the Denver office.
Chilelli and Wisenfeld are eager to work with their new team, which includes seasoned International Account Representatives who have decades of combined experience in electronic component distribution. The office opening will be jointly supervised with Chilelli and Wisenfeld both on-site to ensure the success of the new location.
“This expansion will not only support new customers, but will also offer an opportunity to grow partnerships in the area,” stated Chilelli. “Having such close proximity to our customers in this region will elevate the support and service we can offer. We are excited about the experienced team we have in place, the opportunities this location presents, and the customer relationships we can create.”
