The College of Business is proud to announce the BGSU Sales Team captured second place behind Florida State University at the recent University of Toledo Invitational Sales Competition. The BGSU team finished higher than such notable schools as Baylor, Clemson, Purdue, Temple, James Madison, and Kansas State. The UT Sales Competition is the first and only national sales competition dedicated exclusively to non-seniors.

As individuals, BGSU team members, Sophia Barnes, specializing in sales and services marketing, finished 4th out of 36 students in the Junior Division, and marketing student Alex Raffel finished 7th out of 36 students in the Sophomore/Freshman Division.

Special thanks go to the group of student coaches - Collin Levandowski, Hayden Kuzma and Michael Quarcoopome – as well as volunteer professional sales coach, Davida Frick, and Mearl Sutton, associate teaching professor in marketing, for preparing the sales team. Dr. Greg Rich coordinates the sales competition program and attended the competition.
