Jackie Perez, Sales

Jackie has been in the industry for over a decade, working in retail, as a freelancer, in wholesale and now importing! Since joining the amc team, she has taken on Thailand buying responsibilities, procuring the beautiful orchids amc is known for. She also greatly enjoys her sales role, providing quality product at good prices to her fab list of customers. Jackie enjoys living it up with her two awesome kids while solely surviving on coffee and chocolate.

 

Mandy Thompson, Sales

Along with her role as Carol’s sales partner, Mandy is amc’s resident Holland Order Express expert! She can answer just about any question you may have about HOX, having traveled to wholesalers around the country to educate potential users about the program. She even made a trek to Holland to see firsthand how our customers’ orders are processed, from the auction floor to shipping. Mandy began her floral career in retail in Wisconsin, her home state, and she loves to travel home to spend time with her sisters.

Cheryl Virgilio, Sales Support

Cheryl has many responsibilities here at amc, from managing our inventory to placing orders with our vendors.

Cheryl is the BEST at customer service and a great support to our sales staff.

 

Terry Peterson, Office Manager

Terry has been at amc since the beginning! With over 20 years’ experience running an office in the floral import industry, Terry is truly the best at managing the paperwork that it takes to keep amc running. When she’s not wrangling invoices, she likes to read, watch old movies, go to plays, spend time with her grandchildren, and travel with her mom.

 

Lolita Piscitello, Admin.

Although Lolita is technically “retired”, she accepted a part-time position as Administrative Support in 2014. Her responsibilities include entering purchase orders, claims and credits, filing invoices, and sending various daily and weekly reports.

Bayne, Office Mascot

The newest addition to Team amc is arguably its cutest. Bayne is a miniature dachshund who spends most of his day at Mandy’s desk, when he isn’t protecting the office from delivery people or anyone in a dark colored coat. His favorite part about working at amc is all the treats he receives from coworkers and visitors alike.
