President of the International Soap Box Derby joins State and Federal Communications, Inc.

How many know the International Soap Box Derby is in Akron, Ohio? That is right, the big hill is right here and that is where we found Mark Gerberich, who up until the end of February was its president.

That changed on March 6th when Mark walked in the State and Federal Communications, Inc. office as our new Director of Business Development.

You all know I know a lot of people…Well, Mark knows tons more people—here in Akron and around the country.

He is here to help our sales and marketing departments soar to infinity and beyond. His key abilities include being an experienced sales manager with a track record of driving sales and delivering results along with developing national/key accounts.

While Mark was at the Derby, it was able to return to financial and operational stability, navigated the uncertainty and challenges of the pandemic, recruited new members of the Board of Directors and its committees, and maintained a dedicated and mission-driven staff and volunteer base within the Derby DTEM-based education program and offerings.

This is great for me. While Mark is working with the sales and marketing departments, I will have my own plate very full. I have five huge projects on my list to finish in the next three to four years and still continue to run this fabulous company.

There is a lot to do and having Mark Gerberich in a senior position will help move things along. He will join me at upcoming programs. You will see he is a proven leader of experience in sales, marketing, promotions, and television.

Stay tuned. There will be a lot of new things happening at State and Federal Communications.
