On February 25-27, UW-Eau Claire Sales Team members competed in the Invitational Sales Competition (UTISC) hosted virtually by the University of Toledo.
Mattias Allen, a junior marketing major with a professional sales emphasis from Cottage Grove, WI, placed 8th overall in the Sophomore/Freshman Division.
Patrick Smith, a junior finance and marketing double major from Glendale, WI, participated in the Junior Division.
Ethan Van De Hey, a junior marketing major and international business minor from Kaukauna, WI, competed in the Junior Division and won the 3M Social Media Competition. Van De Hey also earned the Most Artistic Video award.
Each of the 33 university teams was comprised of one junior and one sophomore/freshman so they could be matched up against other students with a similar level of experience. Seniors were not allowed to compete in the competition. 3M was the product sponsor UTISC event.
Dr. Lenita Davis and Jessica Gardner are the Sales Team faculty coaches.
Way to go, Blugolds!
