Ed Marill has been selected as the vice president and general manager of GAC International Inc. An employee of GAC International for 21 years, Marill will be responsible for operations at the Long Island and New York headquarters, as well as the United States affiliates, the TechnoCenter, the GAC OrthoWorks Lab, and the company’s worldwide network of international distributors.
“We have a great tradition, here at GAC, for product innovation, long and close relationships with our orthodontic customers, mentors, and advisors, and for being an unusually tight-knit group, big on teamwork, as well as service,” says Marill. “These are three traditions I intend to continue to build on.”
Starting in customer service at GAC International, Marill moved into a sales consultant role before being named sales manager. He is credited with developing the company’s current domestic and international sales and management structure. As director of sales, he oversaw the growth of the GAC sales force, from 14 to more than 50 national sales representatives. In 2003, Marill also took charge of nearly all aspects of GAC’s marketing and promotions.
