Coyotes Consumer Development Representative Ian Winklmann
Hits the Half Million Dollar Mark in Ticket Sales
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Internally!):
Thursday, February 9th, 2012
GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- As of Wednesday, February 8, Coyotes Ticket Sales Representative Ian Winklmann became the first employee to reach the half million dollar threshold in ticket sales in recent years. The last person to achieve this milestone (without annual suites) was our own David Paris in the first year after the lockout. More recently, Mike Briody has achieved this milestone in annual suite sales. Ticket sales are categorized as Full Season, Partial Plan, Group Sales, Individual Tickets, and Coyotes Suite Rentals.
“On behalf of the entire Coyotes organization, I would like to congratulate Ian for all his hard work and dedication on reaching this milestone,” said Coyotes President and COO Mike Nealy. “Reaching the half million dollar mark in sales is an incredible accomplishment and we are all very proud and thankful for his efforts.”
Ian has been with the organization for almost four and a half years. Such a milestone is only achieved by building and retaining a base of customers and adding to that total year after year. Hard work and great service have been key in Ian’s progression to this point. In spite of having a wife (Jennifer) and little one at home (Max), Ian has spent countless nights and weekends in the office, organizing large groups and finalizing last minute ticket sales.
Maybe even more impressive than his sales, is the selfless approach he has taken to help new sales reps in the Coyotes family. Even when the craziest youth hockey parent is hounding Ian for Coyotes SWAG, he always finds the time to mentor those who need a hand.
