Trade credit insurance provider Euler Hermes ACI announced that Rani Christie has joined the company as regional vice president for its new Southern sales region.
The new Southern Region, the fourth sales region for the company, encompasses the states of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and the Carolinas, and will be headquartered in Dallas, Texas.
The decision to provide an increased support network for the sales force was made in an effort to “ensure maximum account management coverage to policyholders nationwide,” said Euler Hermes ACI National sales director John Pontin.
Christie is a graduate of the University of Alabama with a degree in corporate finance and investment management. His experience includes leading the sales teams at Digiscript and Private Business Inc. He also has extensive knowledge of finance issues, having been an investment banker earlier in his professional career.
Christie said his immediate goals include acclimation to the market and immersion into his new corporate structure. “I want to quickly understand the resources and support available to make the Southern Region a successful part of our sales and distribution network,” he said.
Joe Ketzner, Euler Hermes ACI executive vice president – Commercial, heralded both Christie’s arrival and the addition of the fourth sales region. “In looking forward, we have a solid team of sales managers to direct and drive a new sales and service culture within the organization in our quest to further expand the market opportunities in North America. Rani is a substantial addition to that team.”
