New VP to manage sales force.

Preferred Marketing Group, a California-based manufacturer's rep firm, promoted longtime associate Tony Valvo to vice president.

During his 24 years with PMG, Valvo has worked in multiple capacities. Previously he worked in computer hardware and data processing services and sales. He also owned and operated a direct mail marketing company.

In his new role Valvo will manage the firm's sales force on a full-time basis, a step that will further support the company's principals in its California and Nevada territories.
