Imagine Tile Adds New Team Members
MONTCLAIR, NJ -- Imagine Tile, Inc., an industry leader pioneering the use of high-resolution imagery on commercially rated ceramic and porcelain tile, recently announced two additions to their team, Camilo Quintero and Ivana Alava. Camilo Quintero has joined the company as an Architecture & Design (A&D) sales executive. In this position, Quintero will identify, establish and grow new and existing A&D accounts and assist with specification of Imagine Tile products including in-stock and custom tiles. Based in New York City, Quintero will schedule product presentations with architects and designers, participate in industry events, and develop and maintain relationships with specifiers and end users.
“We are excited to add Camilo to the Imagine Tile Team,” said Lynda Portelli, vice president of sales and marketing. “With over five years of experience with industry sales, client relations and design, Camilo has extensive knowledge in commercial and residential tile and is very familiar with the A&D community. We look forward to having him oversee and generate sales for the Imagine Tile brand.”
Prior to joining Imagine Tile, Camilo managed sales and customer relations as a commercial and residential account executive for AKDO, a Connecticut-based manufacturer of stone, porcelain, ceramic, metal, glass and mosaic tiles. Camilo holds a BS in Audiovisual Arts and an AS in Interior Design from Parsons/The New School of Design in New York, NY.
Additionally, Ivana Alava was promoted to sales and marketing coordinator. Alava first joined Imagine Tile as an unpaid intern while she studied marketing at a local university. Upon completing her junior year, she was selected by the Feliciano School of Business to participate in a new program for accelerated students. As part of a co-op program, Alva was able to join the Imagine Tile Team as part of a part-time paid internship. After graduating Montclair State University with a BS in marketing, she was appointed to a full-time position as sales and marketing coordinator. In addition to assisting sales and marketing with day-to-day activities, Alava will manage the company’s social media and other marketing platforms, draft press releases, design e-blasts and build relationships with members of the press and industry partners.
“Ivana is an extremely professional young lady who is a quick study and a creative thinker,” said Portelli. “We are very fortunate to have her as part of our team and look forward to her growing with the company.”
