Marketing consultant Maricel Halmo of Lynden is being honored by Valpak for ranking number one in a 10-month sales contest between all of the coupon-mailing company’s 650 consultants in North America.
Consultants earned points for attracting and retaining new clients from October through July. Halmo earned 817 points, which was 124 more than the contest’s runner-up.
Halmo sells to clients in Whatcom County for the locally-owned Valpak of Western Washington NW.
“This achievement is due to the perseverance of small businesses in Whatcom County,” Halmo said, in a press release. “Despite a difficult economy, they aren’t just wringing their hands but are actively marketing their products and services. I’m honored to work with owners and managers whose businesses contribute to our quality of life by providing excellent customer service and employing many people.”
Valpak of Western Washington NW mails monthly coupons to 180,000 addresses from Marysville to Lynden. Jeff and Kim Goodman have owned the Bellingham firm since 1991.
