Cydcor Promotes Vera Quinn to SVP of Operations

Cydcor, the leading provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams, announced the promotion of Vera Quinn to senior vice president of operations.

In this expanded role, Quinn leads the newly established campaign management and field solutions teams. These departments determine what tools, technology, systems and processes are needed to run more efficient and profitable sales campaigns for Cydcor, its network of independent sales offices and its clients. In addition, Quinn directs the company’s data management, quality assurance and vendor management departments.

While overseeing daily operations at Cydcor’s North American Headquarters, Quinn also works closely with Cydcor’s nearly 200 independent sales offices, senior field leadership and business development teams, as well as the company’s Fortune 500 client roster.

“Vera has made the most significant individual contribution to Cydcor,” CEO Gary Polson said. “Her passion for the field, commitment to our clients and dedication to our people and business is a driving force behind Cydcor’s overall success and positions us well for the future.”

“I take great pride in the role Cydcor plays helping our clients and sales offices reach their business goals,” said Quinn. “Ultimately, we will achieve great results for both through a spirit of partnership and added value.”

Beginning her career more than a decade ago at Cydcor’s former headquarters in Toronto, Canada, Quinn knows the business inside and out. She developed a passion for direct sales early on – successfully building door-to-door, commission-based sales teams for a variety of client campaigns, in nearly 25 independent sales offices. Using her operational expertise, Quinn then ran her own bookkeeping and consulting business, serving the needs of 15 offices in Cydcor’s network of small businesses. In 2000, she took her extensive field knowledge to Cydcor’s corporate office in California where she helped the company grow by 300%. She was named vice president of operations for Cydcor in 2005, and senior vice president in 2008.

Quinn’s accomplishments include evolving Cydcor’s operational processes from manual to automated, establishing a team of campaign experts to assist Cydcor clients and independent offices, leading the development of operational systems and technologies to make Cydcor more efficient and playing a vital role in the ongoing expansion of Cydcor’s face-to-face sales business.
