Salespeople the Industry's Lifeblood

Thank you for the fine article in the June 20th edition of HTT. I am honored to be named as one of the "Living Legends" of our industry.
     The interview was a very accurate representation of my views with a singular exception: If I inadvertently referred to the industry's sales force in a negative manner, I certainly did not intend to do so. Avanti has always cherished our salesmen and women! We employ them on a world-wide basis and they are, certainly, the "life blood" of our industry.
     No one holds them in higher esteem than myself. Had I not founded Avanti those many years ago, I would probably have had a career in sales - and would have loved it!
