Howie Appel of Lake Mary is your Local Avon Representative. He has been selling Avon for 16 years. Howie just found out that he has been assigned to a new Senior Sales Executive out of the Jacksonville area. He called her yesterday to welcome her to her new position and she informed him that she is responsible for 3000 Avon Representatives in her territory (Central Florida, North Florida, and South Georgia). She also informed him that of the 3000 representatives, he ranks #24 in overall sales. She mentioned that he was at 42 this time last year.
Of Avon’s representatives, men make up 2% of the total number. He pointed out that he is keeping his wife, Marla’s, legacy alive. For 13 years he and she were one of the very few Avon couples in this area. Marla passed from cancer in 2016. She asked him to promise he’d continue the business. He has done this. He joined the Seminole County Chamber last year and has many Chamber members as customers.
Howie has achieved “Presidents Club” and “Honor Society” based on his personality, leadership, recruiting, and sales skills. In 2016, one month before Marla passed away, the couple was honored by the region with the “Spirit of Avon” award presented to Representatives who go above and beyond the normal routine in their daily efforts.
The couple had been selling since 2004 and have made President’s Club from the first year on. Howie picked up the reins and continued, relentlessly, building this business. Howie is now also focusing on fundraising efforts. If you run a non-profit and would like to work with Howie on one or more of several fundraising programs, contact him at 407-373-4293 or email him at email@example.com Looking for an Avon Brochure?
