Full Compass Systems has promoted Kyle Kjensrud from product specialist to assistant product manager – publications & e-commerce, where he will now be playing a key role in merchandising initiatives, selecting products for print publications and assisting with stock recommendations.
In addition, he will be working closely with the marketing department to enhance the Full Compass web site, and will also continue to develop and maintain vendor relationships.
“Kyle has proven himself to be a great asset to the company and we are excited to see him step into this critical new role,” states Kevin Peckham, Full Compass product manager. “This is a newly created position and we look forward to seeing Kyle develop it fully and help to move the company towards its goals.”
Kjensrud began working at Full Compass in August 2000 as a sales representative in the company’s CompassXpress department.
Ten months later, he accepted an opportunity in the company’s wholesale division. During this time, his potential was quickly realized and he was promoted to second shift sales manager, where he managed a team of eight sales representatives.
In February 2005, Kjensrud made a major change by transferring from sales to the product management team, where he began working directly with vendors and assisted in the production of the Full Compass product catalogs. Kjensrud excelled in this position until being promoted to his current role of assistant product manager.
“I am honored to be chosen for this position,” Kjensrud says. “I plan to keep a sharp focus on our goals and create a logical approach to product selection that will result in the greatest benefit to our customers.”
