Office opened

PLATTSBURGH — Vector Marketing has opened a new sales office in Plattsburgh run by Vector District Manager (DM) Haley Poupore.

The Plattsburgh office, located at 23 Durkee Street, Ste. B, will be used for the recruitment and training of new sales representatives as well as for team meetings where additional training and mentorship is provided. Sales representatives market Vector's product, CUTCO Cutlery, through in-home presentations and use the sales office as a home base. As an independent contractor, Vector district managers individually own their Vector sales office.

Being a Vector DM allows Poupore to be an entrepreneur while having guidance and support from corporate headquarters. Following Vector's promote-from-within policy, all managers begin as sales representatives.

Poupore worked her way up becoming an assistant manager and field sales manager before receiving her most recent promotion.

Vector is a subsidiary of CUTCO, headquartered in Olean, NY. As a single-level, direct-sales firm, it is the exclusive marketer of CUTCO Cutlery and accessories, which are sold directly to consumers via in-home demonstrations. The company has an extensive leadership-training and life-skills development program to encourage its college-student reps to not only succeed with sales of its products but to equip them with the tools necessary to succeed in life.

Efficient vehicles

PLATTSBURGH — New York State Electric and Gas (NYSEG) and Rochester Gas and Electric (RG&E) have added three more environmentally friendly vehicles to the dozens already on the job across the state.

At RG&E, employees are now using a Chevy Volt for in-town travel. The company plans to install charging stations at its 89 East Avenue facility which will fully charge the Volt's batteries in four hours or less and accommodate additional electric vehicles in the future.
