CHANTILLY,Va.(Aug. 22, 2013) –CORT Business Services announces that Bob Buzzell and Peggy Moore are promoted to senior vice president of commercial development and vice president of commercial sales, respectively. They are leading CORT’s national initiative to provide businesses with services that offer the ultimate in flexibility in furnishing their offices spaces.
In addition to these promotions, CORT hired or promoted eight regional sales managers across the country to direct the commercial sales teams and interface with key clients. CORT will also be adding customer support teams dedicated to the commercial customer. More than ever before, businesses need fluid and flexible work environments to accommodate the way people work today – collaborative work areas, huddle space, touchdown stations and more.
“CORT is the unquestioned leader in providing rental office furniture to companies for their short and long term needs. In addition, companies are realizing that owning and managing cumbersome and depreciating assets long term may not be the best financial solution in a changing market, and that rental makes sense in many more situations,” said Buzzell. “Companies have a significant opportunity to stay nimble, both financially and physically, by working with CORT.”
Prior to this promotion, Buzzell served as regional vice president of operations for CORT. Bob built his extensive retail background by working at a number of national, well-known retail companies including Sears and Circuit City where he served in operations and merchandising management roles.
Moore has a rich history with CORT. She has been with the company for 23 years in sales and operations as district sales manager, district general manager, national account executive and most recently, director of government sales.
