Erich reports to Penny Sikalis and succeeds John Kelly, who was appointed sales manager of the New York International Gift Fair’s General Gift division two months ago.
The move marks a return of Erich to GLM. From 1998-2005, he held several sales and management positions for GLM-managed gift shows. Since 2005, he served as trade-show marketing manager for the Craft & Hobby Association.
