DirectBuy of Gurnee Attends International Conference

Gurnee, Illinois (PressExposure) December 10, 2008 -- Held from November 22 to 25, 2008, at the San Francisco Marriott, DirectBuy’s conference, appropriately titled Brilliance by the Bay, brought DirectBuy center owners, staff and vendors from across the U.S. and Canada. Besides awards banquets and keynote speakers, the conference provided a team-building opportunity.

“It’s great to attend DirectBuy’s international conference for a lot of reasons: new ideas, as well as meeting other center owners and staff. Perhaps the best benefit is it gives our staff a chance to bond outside the showroom,” said Karuna Talwar, owner of DirectBuy of Gurnee. “That not only improves morale at work but gets our staff even more excited about what we do here at DirectBuy.”

DirectBuy of Gurnee staff attending the conference included: ● Lisa Miller – Member Service Manager, Winthrop Harbor, Illinois ● Brad Marchildon – Call Center Manager, Grayslake, Illinois ● McNemon Vincent – Warehouse Manager, Gurnee, Illinois ● Tim Cain – Cabinetry Designer, Waukegan, Illinois ● Ronald Milton – Director, Gurnee, Illinois ● Justin Carmody – Director, Beach Park, Illinois ● Trisha Avery – Member Associate, Kenosha, Wisconsin ● Erin McCormack – Senior Product Specialist, Grayslake, Illinois ● Vera Masionis – Product Specialist, Round Lake Beach, Illinois ● Kristina Anderson – Product Specialist, Round Lake, Illinois ● Jillian Wolf – Product Specialist, Richmond, Illinois ● Laura Murdie – Personal Assistant to Karuna Talwar, Salem, Wisconsin
