Vince Sicilia joined Quench’s sales team in January 2012. Recently promoted to Selling Supervisor of a sales team, Vince loves the fast-pace and instant gratification nature of sales. His job includes a combination of supervising and selling. He supports his team by discussing new ways that they can meet their monthly targets while striving to achieve his own sales goals. He enjoys speaking to potential customers, managing current accounts, and helping current customers find the best Quench machine to suit their needs. However, he feels the best part of his job is watching teammates grow and turn their weaknesses into strengths.
Although it may be hard to believe now, when Vince first started his selling career he was very shy when it came to talking to customers. As Vince describes his first days in sales, “I would see [potential customers] coming in and want to hide in the back! So I went back to school and took public speaking classes which definitely helped.” After overcoming his shyness, Vince sold three cars in a row at his first job at a car dealership in Philadelphia and was hooked! Twelve years later, Vince loves sales and enjoys coming to work every day because he gets to talk to people.
His favorite part of working at Quench is the team atmosphere and fun people. “You feel comfortable when you come to work” he says. Out of the Quench machines, the Quench 770, which has sparkling water, is his first choice. The “fancy” look is just a bonus to the great taste of the water. Vince likes Quench filtered water so much that he drinks over a gallon a day!
Vince’s love of water may come from growing up on Long Beach Island, NJ with his parents and three younger brothers. Vince is an avid surfer and goes back to LBI almost every weekend to spend time with his family and hang out on the beach. On his drive to the beach, Vince likes to roll his windows down and listen to country music, Tim McGraw, Gary Allan, and George Strait are some of his favorite artists. When he is not surfing at the shore or jamming out to country music, you can usually find Vince at the gym or running outside at Valley Forge or Ridley Park.
In terms of television shows, Vince has a flair for the dramatic. He cites “Ray Donovan”, “Game of Thrones” and “Breaking Bad” as some of his favorites. And as any good Italian American, he loves all the classic “Italian movies,” like The Godfather or Goodfellas. His Italian heritage also feeds into his strong desire to visit Italy one day. Vince backpacked Europe after he graduated college but didn’t make it to Italy and Greece, so they have been on the top of his list to visit ever since!
We are glad you are part of the Quench family, Vince! If you want to meet Vince in person, make sure you stop by Booth 1439 at IFMA!
