Crystal Names Two Regional Sales Managers

FLUSHING, NY, June 11, 2012 – Crystal Window & Door Systems is pleased to announce the promotion of two of its management staff to key sales positions. Blaise Benevenga, who joined Crystal in 2010 as the lead sales representative for expanding operations in New Jersey, was recently named Regional Sales Manager for New England and New Jersey (NE/NJ). Steven Yu, who has led Crystal’s Marketing Department for several years, has taken on the sales management position in the Mid-Atlantic States. Crystal manufactures vinyl and aluminum windows and high-end fenestration systems for all markets – residential, multi-family, commercial, institutional and governmental.

Crystal recently promoted Blaise Benevenga (above) and Steven Yu (below) to be Regional Sales Managers for New England /New Jersey and Mid-Atlantic Territories, respectively.

“The talent and experience Blaise and Steven bring to their new roles will enhance Crystal’s presence and sales efforts in their respective territories,” said Steve Chen, Executive Vice President. “They both are professionals with a wealth of industry experience and will provide the superior level of service Crystal customers have come to expect.”

Blaise Benevenga has a long career in the fenestration and building supplies industry and has earned numerous “top sales” recognitions for his work. He holds a business degree from Montclair University in New Jersey. Formerly a sales professional with Silver Line and Dor-Win Manufacturing, Blaise joined Crystal’s sales team in 2010 to focus on dealer/distributor sales efforts and large scale projects in New Jersey. Now as Regional Sales Manager for NE/NJ, Blaise directs Crystal’s expansion and increasing market presence through a sales staff in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and northern New England. “With greater customer awareness of Crystal’s vast product line and our diverse manufacturing capabilities, we are expanding sales substantially in New England,” Blaise noted.

With a degree in computer science from Polytechnic University in New York and formal art and graphics training, Steven Yu began his career with Crystal in 2004 in the Marketing Department. He was promoted to Marketing Manager a few years later, and has been instrumental in sharpening Crystal’s corporate image through advertising, sales literature, on-line presence, trade shows and other efforts. Steven’s knowledge of Crystal’s product features and specifications in addition to industry and regulatory trends position him and his sales team well to lead sales expansion efforts in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and other Mid-Atlantic regions. “We are especially excited to see results of our focused efforts in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina,” observed Steven.

“With our new managers in place to lead sales efforts in New England and the Mid-Atlantic regions, I feel Crystal is well-poised for growth now and in the future,” added Steve Chen.
