    Rich Merrell

    Sales Director

    PRemployer

    Rich Merrell Started with PRemployer on October 3, 2013. Rich has brought an amazingly diverse sales background (21 years) to PRemployer. Just as an example, Rich worked in sales, management and training for 8 years in Italy where he conducted business in the Italian language. In his free time while in Italy he participated on the Florence wrestling team. This kind of diversity has proven to be very helpful in sales.  He will say, “It’s about having a strong sense of perception that makes adapting to different situations invaluable in sales”. Rich is a Christian devoted to God; a family man devoted to his wife and two children; and a company man devoted to the success of PRemployer. Rich is still an athlete who enjoys pushing his body and mind. Rich is a people person and being around groups gives him energy. Five words to describe Rich are passionate, energetic, devoted, loyal and honest.
