Erik Freitag Promoted to VP of Business Development
Coffee Ambassador is pleased to announce the recent promotion of Sales Manager Erik Freitag to Vice President of Business Development.
Having spent over 20 years in sales, and 15 of those years in executive or management positions, Erik is well prepared for this new position where his primary focus is on growth, acquiring new customers, and ensuring that each customer has the best possible experience with the office coffee service provided by Coffee Ambassador.
“I was first introduced to OCS (office coffee service) by Coffee Amabassador when I came on board as Sales Manager three years ago. Having come from sales in the oil and energy industry, I like to jest that now that I’m in the coffee industry, and it’s just a different octane,” said Erik. When asked what’s the best part of working for the premier office coffee service provider in San Diego, Erik smiled and replied, “We didn’t become the best by accident. What I enjoy most about the company is its commitment to consisently finding new ways to blend the rich, nearly 50-year history of servicing some of San Diego’s brightest companies with an ever-changing demand for providing the BEST coffee brewed with the coolest new technology.”
Erik has always had a passion for business modeling and loves approaching potiential new clients with this question: “Six months from now, what will have had to have happened for you to be completely satisified and happy with Coffee Ambassador’s service to you?” This is just one factor that sets Coffee Ambassador above the rest.
As cliche as it sounds, Erik is a self-proclaimed, ultimate family man. “I spend my weekends with my five-year-old son and my lovely wife Karla… when she isn’t showing a home or hosting an open house as a local real estate agent, of course.” Erik and his family like to play “roulette,” rotating outings from Sea World to the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park to Balboa Park and musuems. And on a final note he said, “And of course we LOVE the beach, too!”
Congratulations to Erik from all of us at Coffee Ambassador!
