LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Promotional sales company Wahlquist Management Corp. has promoted K.J. Baldacci, who has worked with the firm for five years as an event manager, to director of event operations.
"We are thrilled to promote K.J. to his new position with our organization and I am confident that he will perform in his new role magnificently," said Clay Wahlquist, president and CEO.
Baldacci began his career in the furniture industry 13 years ago working in the warehouse of a family-owned furniture store, North Carolina Furniture Connection. He later excelled in sales at the store and became its director of advertising and store manager.
When the retailer conducted an event with Wahlquist, Baldacci was introduced to the firm's high impact sales system. Shortly afterward, he joined the Wahlquist team.
As director of event operations, Baldacci will oversee Wahlquist events nationally, ensuring the superb training of event managers and sales associates, the company said. He also will work as a national marketing consultant.
"I am honored to get the opportunity to work in a more hands-on capacity for such a well respected company and I continue to be honored to be a part of such a dedicated and hard working team," Baldacci said.
