Congratulations to 2019 Alumni of the Year Michael Breslin!
Michael topped a talented, deep field of candidates and three other sensational Finalists to capture our 5th annual award. His work as Director of Corporate Account at CenTrak in 2018 was simply outstanding and captured the attention of our Star Judges, our former winners and everyone who took part in evaluating the event.
In Michael’s case, the third time was a charm, as he was a previous Alumni of the Year Finalist for our 2015 and 2018 awards. His win is representative of the “never say die” attitude we hold dear at memoryBlue and it’s a tribute to his consistent, top-level performance as a sales professional.
Breslin wins a $5,000 dream vacation and a permanent placement as a legend within our halls. He will be officially honored in an awards ceremony later this year.
A Look Back at the 2019 Contest
Our 5th annual competition concluded on April 5th, 2019 with the announcement of Michael Breslin as our 5th annual winner.
Here is a look back at the four strong Finalists for the 2019 program as well as other details from the 2019 competition:
Ashley Lounsbury – Enterprise Account Executive, Tableau
Jonathan Stevens – National Channel Manager, CyrusOne
Michael Breslin – Director, Corporate Accounts, CenTrak
Robbie Connors – Enterprise Account Executive – Mid-Atlantic, ScienceLogic
The judging process included former Alumni of the Year winners, a star-studded judges panel comprised of decorated inside sales industry luminaries, company leadership and an “at large” popular vote. In the end, there could only be one Alumni of the Year – someone who stands alone on top of an extremely high mountain!
Our 2019 Alumni of the Year winner Michael Breslin has earned a $5,000 dream vacation on us along with the prestige that comes with joining the select group of prior victors. We will also hang a new banner for Michael in each of our offices, letting every memoryBlue visitor and employee know just how much this accomplishment means. Finally, he will also get his own conference room named after him in one of our offices.
The Judges Panel
Like past years, we turned to a strong group of inside sales industry luminaries to help us judge the competition. The panel was comprised of the following professional sales experts, leaders and educators:
In addition to these judges, each former Alumni of the Year award winner had a vote. These accomplished sales pros had what it took to get themselves to the mountaintop, so their input is greatly valued every time we determine the next person to join their ranks!
