Vector Marketing Corporation Presents Highest Corporate Honor for Community Service to Two Division Managers

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - December 20, 2010) - Aaron Love and Angie Macdougall, division managers for Vector Marketing Corporation, the direct sales division of Cutco Cutlery Corporation, were presented with the "Marty Domitrovich Triple Crown of Service" award at the company's recent Strategic Leadership Conference in San Diego, California. The award is given in memory of one of Vector Marketing's most esteemed leaders, and is presented each year to the person or persons showing outstanding contributions to his or her community. This is the first year the award has been presented.

Etched on the Triple Crown of Service plaque is one of Marty's favorite sayings, illustrating his positive outlook on life: "You have the ability to live a life filled with more joy and satisfaction than you ever imagined. There are no limits except the ones you put on yourself. We have all been put on earth for a special purpose, with talents and abilities we haven't yet realized. Success means truly understanding what is important in life and what gives you joy and happiness. Whatever that is for you, do it with one hundred percent passion."

Love, a father of four and resident of Spokane, Washington, manages 10 Vector Marketing offices throughout Eastern Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. He received the award in recognition of his commitment to helping organizations in his community that benefit those who are less fortunate, and for inspiring those who work for him to do the same.

Love has contributed his time and efforts to numerous Spokane-area charities, including:

  • The Vanessa Behan Crisis Center, a safe place where parents can drop their kids off for three days with no questions asked if they feel they could do harm to them.
  • A local animal shelter.
  • Food banks.
  • Teen Closet, for which they raise clothing donations for kids in the foster care system (Love is on the board of this charity).

Love has also instilled a commitment to giving back to his children (ages 12, 9, 5, and 2). Each year, his eldest kids donate between 350 - 375 beanie babies to the local hospital -- enough for each sick child hospitalized in Spokane to have their own beanie baby.

Macdougall, a mother of two and resident of Vernon, British Columbia, manages all of Vector Marketing's Western Canada offices. She is involved in many community activities, including:

  • The Calgary Breast Cancer Run.
  • Delivering food, clothing, and other goods to the Calgary Drop-In Center for the homeless.
  • Teaching parts of the Smiles 101 class at the University of Calgary Haskayne School of Business, which incorporates the Cutco selling model into its senior level sales course. Students at the Haskayne school donate the proceeds of sales from this class to the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada.
  • Serving on the Board of the Front Row Foundation, an organization that provides people facing life-threatening illnesses with "front row" tickets to major events.
  • Last year, she challenged her sales reps and managers to raise/donate funds for the Children's Wish Foundation. In two weeks they raised around $16,000.

"Angie and Aaron embody the finest characteristics of Marty Domitrovich -- an unselfish dedication to others, a commitment to service, and a superb example of how to achieve a work/life balance. Their selection for this honor is a tribute to his memory," said Bruce Goodman, president and CEO of Vector Marketing Corporation's western division.
