MarketTime appoints Landon Metts as Vice President of Sales

MarketTime, the provider of B2B omnichannel solutions and sales enablement tools in the gift, home, and toy industries, announced that Landon Metts has joined their sales team as Vice President of Sales.

A 2021 recipient of Gift Shop® Plus and Stationery Trends 40 Under 40 Awards, Metts most recently served as National Sales Manager at Creative Brands and is an accomplished sales professional in the wholesale industry. He is known for his ability to cultivate internal and external business relationships as well as motivate peers to grow and succeed beyond their roles.

When asked about his decision to leave Creative Brands, Metts shared a recollection from his own experience as a MarketTime customer, “The MarketTime Team was always solutions minded, always striving to find a way to help and tenacious about doing so.” Metts went on to say, “The idea of moving out of merchandising and into the tech side of things is exciting. It’s an opportunity for me to take my experience and provide solutions to people like me.”

“Occasionally the stars align in business, and Landon’s interest in joining MarketTime is one of those times,” said Todd Litzman, President of MarketTime. “Selling technology is difficult. Finding people who can not only sell it but fully understand the value of the technology as it relates to the industries they are selling to, is even more difficult. Between Landon’s industry knowledge and his experience utilizing MarketTime tools, he is the perfect fit for our sales team.”

Jacob Teplin, COO of MarketTime, added, “I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Landon to the team. Landon cares deeply about people and forming trusted relationships. He also understands the importance of the Human Factor and the critical role that sales agencies and great salespeople play in our industry. He will be an asset to our existing and future customers.”

In addition to his role with MarketTime, Metts currently serves on the Board of Directors for Gift for Life, the industry’s sole charitable organization, and was a previous honoree of Gift Shop Magazine’s National 40 Under 40 award exemplifying outstanding innovation in the gift/stationery industry.
