MicroD, web technology provider for the home furnishings industry, named Jay Diamond as Vice President of Sales. Diamond will address the business development needs of retailers and manufacturers while helping them with their revenue growth initiatives through MicroD’s product visualization and web technology.
Prior to joining MicroD, Diamond held the position of Vice President of Sales at Netsertive, a North Carolina-based digital advertising company, for 5.5 years. He led high-achieving enterprise sales and development teams, created strategies for developing new business and achieving revenue goals, and implemented new marketing programs. Diamond has been a featured presenter at various industry events including the Las Vegas and High Point furniture markets, among many others.
“We are delighted to have Jay on board at MicroD,” says Manoj Nigam, MicroD CEO and Chairman. “In our continued effort to scale our company to address growing needs of our customers, we strive to continue to enhance our platform, our processes and our people. Jay’s addition to our Management team is a step forward in building our talent and management pool.”
Since 2005 Diamond has achieved success building businesses development teams in his previous roles at well-known media companies. His expertise in digital advertising, marketing and technology will be a valuable addition to the MicroD team.
“I'm delighted to join the MicroD team and play a key role in the cultivation of the company and our on-going commitment to clients' success,” says Diamond. “One of the biggest threats to retailers is a failure to adapt to consumer behavior. Today’s shoppers with nearly unlimited access to pre-purchase information are more educated than ever before. The approach to marketing and reaching these shoppers continues to change. I'm excited by MicroD’s ability to adapt to consumer behavior and evolve products to assure that our clients are well positioned for success in today's ever-changing digital world.”
“Jay is a well-respected thought-leader in home furnishings digital marketing, and has deep understanding of the needs of both manufacturers and retailers alike,” says Richard Sexton, Chief Product Officer at MicroD. “He has an intuitive knowledge of our industry dynamics and is able to craft effective and rewarding digital services for retailers and manufactures in our industry to enhance their businesses. I have always been impressed by his leadership, depth of knowledge, and approachability at industry events, workshops and seminars. We are looking forward to have him join our team to make our customer’s businesses successful on the digital front.”
