Four University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire business students will represent UW-Eau Claire at the 16th National Collegiate Sales Competition (NCSC), March 28-31, 2014 at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, GA.
Undergraduate students from 66 schools will compete at this year's event.
Competing for UW-Eau Claire are Kelsey Keiser, a senior professional sales marketing major from Prairie Du Sac, WI, and Koral Pischer, a junior professional sales marketing major from Peshtigo, WI. Jacob Hagglund, a senior professional sales marketing major from Neillsville, WI, and Steven Helgeson, a senior professional sales marketing and finance double major from Eau Claire, WI and will serve as alternates and assistant coaches. Jerry Kollross, UW-Eau Claire Department of Management and Marketing, is the faculty coach. Dr. Bob Erffmeyer is the director of the Center for Sales and Sales Management.
A sales competition was held on campus in late January to determine which members of the UW-Eau Claire Sales Team would attend the NCSC. Students sold ADP Run software to buyers from the L.E. Phillips Career Development Center. Sales professionals from TEKSystems and Thomson Reuters judged the event. Special thanks to TEKSystems and Thomson Reuters for sponsoring the local competition.
