Perhaps it was a twist of fate that landed me here at The Dreyfus Corp. as a wholesaler, as I was days away from taking my professional career in a total different direction. Now my job is to cover the state of Michigan on behalf of Dreyfus, and I spend as much time as I can in front of brokers, helping them grow their business. At the same time, I am at the top of my field in many respects.
In my five years at Dreyfus, I am a four-time member of the firm's President's Club, which is one of my main motivations here. Although the requirements change year to year, in order to get in last year, I had to be at the top in sales, and also the number of relationships I was able to build relative to the universe of potential customers.
