Integra was honored to welcome management from J M Smith and QS/1 at the Integra offices in Anacortes, WA this week. Visiting Integra was Alan Turfe – J M Smith Chairman & CEO, Saul Factor – QS/1 President, Joey Parrish – QS/1 Director of Customer Support, and our own Jim McDonald – Integra’s National Sales Director. Meetings took place to review product plans, client services operations, and Alan and Saul had lunch with the entire company to talk about the goals of J M Smith and hear from us all of us as well. Alan stated he is “thankful to be part of a team that takes such pride in what we do and who we are, whether by celebrating our successes, by giving back to our communities, or by going the extra mile for our customers.”
In July, Saul Factor, RPh joined the J M Smith team as the new president of QS/1. Saul hit the ground running, meeting employees and customers across the country in his first few weeks on the job. He and QS/1 Client Services Director, Joey Parrish, spent time with Integra’s Client Services Director, Mileen Loeffler, to share ideas and increase collaborative efforts across the two divisions.
“It’s an exciting time for Integra and the other divisions,” said Kevin Welch, Integra’s President, and J M Smith’s CTO. “Collaboration is strengthening and we look toward a very exciting future. Having Alan, Saul, and Joey at our offices lets my staff know there are real people who care at all levels and divisions within J M Smith.”
