MIDDLETOWN RI — KVH Industries, Inc. is pleased to name Ben Bettelli of Coast Marine Marketing, LLC, as its Sales Representative of the Year. Bettelli is a 9-year veteran of the consumer electronics industry. He joined KVH in 2004 as a field training manager and eventually became a regional sales manager for the companyâ€™s automotive products. He is now the Pacific Northwest sales manager at Coast Marine Marketing in Renton, WA, selling a variety of KVH products to diverse clientele in this maritime business hub.
KVHâ€™s Sales Representative of the Year award is presented annually to recognize excellent service, productivity, consistently positive customer feedback, and commitment to KVH Industries.
â€œBen is an excellent example of why KVHâ€™s commercial maritime sales efforts are flourishing, especially with our efforts to expand the use of our TracPhone® V7 and mini-VSAT BroadbandSM service aboard commercial vessels operating out of ports in the Pacific Northwest,â€ explains Jim George, director of sales for satellite products at KVH. â€œWe are known as a company that strives for complete customer and dealer satisfaction, and representatives like Ben are key in helping us maintain that reputation, while bringing our products to a new audience.â€
â€œI was completely floored when I found out,â€ says Bettelli. â€œItâ€™s an amazing feeling, Iâ€™ve worked directly for KVH in the past so I understand the importance of such an award.â€
In recent years, the TracPhone V7 has grown to become one of KVHâ€™s most popular products, particularly among commercial mariners. Ben agrees, describing how easy it is to sell the system. â€œWith the TracPhone V7, we have something completely unique which has made a big splash in a short amount of time,â€ he says. â€œItâ€™s great to be a part of that and be the first to sell the product in the Pacific Northwest. The TracVision® and TracPhone systems are a killer group of products, the absolute best in their categories with the best support, best service, and best performance of all the products on the market.â€
