    Default Time to break in a new LJ rep again

    Just got a email from LJ that Mark Clark has left the company. They have moved someone else over. Any one have any dealings with Gary Hansgen?
    I know this market is tough, but I would think that they should be able to keep reps for more then just a few years. This is my 6th different rep since I have owned the business and for about 1/3 of that time, I didn't have a rep at all from LJ.

    Larson put a new rep in the NY after moving Steve Rella down to Florida. The new rep visited once, when she first started, now all she does is send out emails.

    I agree Randy, although I did get dinner at Morton's one year from my former LJ rep that became a suit in the company.

    Funny thing was that she was a vegetarian.

    I just got a call today from a new rep too. She's coming in on Tuesday. No mention of food, however. In fact, no rep has ever offered me food since I had lunch with the late great Harvey Eisenstodt of Art-o-Rama and Ivy back in around 1980-something. He was a great guy, and longtime friend of Vivian Kistler.

    His son Mike is not such a bad guy either.

    Nope. Not at all. I haven't seen Mike in years. Do you see him? I think he reps for a number of office supply companies, calling on campus bookstores and the like.
    Rick

    Gumby, does Mike rep any of the products you sell?

    Going back over 30 years, and starting with Juhl-Pacific and Shannen Murphy, I can only remember three since then, and each stayed for many years. All have been excellent and food has definitely been involved!

    If your reps don't take you out to lunch, take them! I try to get to know our better reps and knowing a bit more about them makes me appreciate their hard work even more. It's a two way street.
