Betsy has been in sales and marketing management for the past thirty years. She started as a National Sales Manager in the wholesale giftware industry helping grow a small company by 500% in four years by recruiting, hiring and managing manufacturers’ representative groups.

Subsequently, she was director of Membership Development for SBANE, the Smaller Business Association of New England, responsible for hiring, training and managing its inside and outside sales force. Under her sales leadership, SBANE experienced an unparallelled growth in their membership.

In 1993, Betsy joined Sales and Marketing Search as a recruiter and focused her business on emerging technology companies. Since that time, she has recruited sales and marketing candidates, at all levels, for companies ranging in size from start-up ventures to a $6 billion dollar international hardware and software systems integrator. In January 2000, Betsy became the owner of Sales and Marketing Search.

Betsy has served on a number of boards and advisory committees, both in business and local community service. She is a member of the Smaller Business Association of New England (SBANE), the MIT Enterprise Forum, the North Shore Technology Council, the Massachusetts Association of Personnel Services and The Boston Club.

Betsy is a certified “Maine-iac” as well.  In her spare time she spends as much time as she possibly can at her little cabin in the Acadia/Mt. Desert area with her husband, Don, and their wire-haired dachshund, Lucy.
