As our fearless Director of Sales, he makes sure there are many like him on the sales floor. Working closely with our training department in Quality Control, Gilly’s successful actions as a sale person have been isolated and documented so we can make sure others learn his skills.

As a father of four, his extracurricular activities are usually spent outdoors with his boys or taking them to Taekwondo classes.

Her goal is to make sure CES clients, sales reps, managers, and executives have all they need in order to make the sales process run smoothly and productively.

Marta Long
Marta LongDirector of Quality Control
Marta Long came to CES in 2009, bringing with her 23 years of experience as a stellar business consultant.

Marta oversees all the call monitoring, catches training application errors and corrects sales reps, helping them to become great consultants.

However, perhaps the most impressive work Marta does is manage all the exceptional training we do at CES. We take great pride in our training and this is due, in large part, to the great care with which Marta performs this duty.

Christian Jacobson

Christian Jacobson came to CES in 2014 after he had been a consultant to our I/T department for over 6 years. His specialty is technology infrastructure design and implementation.

Christian and his team were real heroes for CES in 2009 when we had a fire that destroyed our building. He was able to get the high-tech telephone system that CES uses up and running with an even more state-of-the-art technology in a new building in a mere 32 hours! And he did so with systems that were able to reduce phone expenses by $9,000 per month!
