Essendant Makes Vertical Markets Appointment

(DECEMBER 9, 2019) - US wholesaler Essendant has promoted Guy Unterberg to the role of Senior Director of its Vertical Markets Group (VMG).

Unterberg is an established office products veteran having held a number of senior positions at re-sellers such as Office Depot, OfficeMax and Boise Cascade Office Products. He joined Essendant in 2017 as Director of Business Development and has been credited with winning over dozens of regional and national accounts on behalf of the wholesaler’s customers.

As Senior Director of VMG, he will oversee the unit of Essendant which helps independent resellers gain share in key verticals such as federal and state government, enterprise, education and healthcare. He succeeds David Haugh who left to join industrial distributor MSC a few months ago.

“Over the past three years, Guy has proven himself as a capable leader dedicated to our customer’s growth,” said Essendant VP of Sales Renee Starr

“The vertical markets team is a critical component of Essendant’s go-to-market strategy and represents a billion-dollar opportunity for re sellers. Guy’s strong track record for growth speaks for itself and I’m confident his experience within these verticals will lead to success.” - (OPI)
