Central Michigan University students received top awards at the Pi Sigma Epsilon National Sales Competition Saturday, April 12, in Miami. More than 300 students from around the nation participated.
Plymouth senior Kristina Crilley took first place as top sales person in the U.S. She is the second consecutive student from CMU to win this award. Saginaw junior Ryan Williamson followed Crilley with fourth place.
“Being able to bring back a national award for our team is exciting and rewarding,” Crilley said. “Competing at a level like this has brought out skills that can’t be gained in the classroom and puts everything in a real-world perspective.”
Crilley was awarded a trophy and $1,500 dollars. She also took second place as top project manager. Williamson was awarded a trophy and $750.
Troy senior Jeremy Cooper, Canton senior Lauren Dworzanin, Romeo senior Ashley Fennell and Caledonia senior Matt Russo also placed in the top 20.
Lowell junior and CMU Pi Sigma Epsilon president Tyler Wallner won a $1,500 scholarship from Vector Marketing and Ann Arbor senior Adam London was awarded second place for top sales project.
The Sales Education Foundation named CMU’s professional sales program to its 2013 Top University Sales programs for the fifth consecutive year.
