The Motivator: Sadie Schlief, American Solutions for Business (asi/120075)
American Solutions for Business has been on a roll, and Sadie Schlief is at the helm for this company’s ad specialty sales effort. This bright and energetic mother of two is always on the go trying to find new ways to get ASB’s 500 sales reps to increase their sales of promotional products. And they’ve been doing just that. The company is now number 12 on the Counselor Top 40 distributor list – and it shot up with a bang this year, increasing its ad specialty industry revenue from $87 million to more than $100 million. You want more? Schlief has a hobby farm in rural Minnesota, so she obviously has a knack for “growing” things.
Sadie has been with American since 2006, launching her career in the industry in our customer service department. She describes herself as “determined and driven.” Sadie worked in retail before establishing an upholstery business which she owned and operated for 10 years. She and her husband, Kevin, have a daughter, Mason, 11, and a son, Aanan, 9. The family lives on a small farm 15 miles from American’s Home Offices in Glenwood.
