Promoting from Within a Good Call… DirectBuy of Vancouver Promotes Sasha Idema

DirectBuy of Vancouver, the leading members-only showroom and home design center that offers merchandise at manufacturer-direct prices, recently promoted Sasha Idema to Call Center Manager.

Vancouver, Canada, April 30, 2008 --( Raised in Tsawwassen and currently residing in Vancouver, Idema began with DirectBuy of Vancouver in 2006 as a member of the call center staff.

"Sasha does a great job in our call center both with members, potential members and the rest of our staff. This promotion is well deserved on performance alone. What makes it even more impressive is that she did it in spite of some physical issues that probably would have stopped or slowed down most people, but Sasha never missed a day," said Jade Allen, co-owner of DirectBuy of Vancouver.

As a teenager, Idema completed much of her studies from a hospital bed after being stricken with a rare form of MS called CIDP. Then, in 2005, she was diagnosed with MS in its typical form. Through medication and diet, she's currently symptom-free from both afflictions. In fact, she participated in her third MS Walk on April 27.

"DirectBuy has been a great company to work for and I've learned so much in my few years here," said Idema. "When you have a challenge like MS in your life, the best medicine is the environment you put yourself in. We work hard, but we also have fun and that's been another key ingredient to getting my health back and sustaining it."

With four convenient locations in the greater Vancouver area (Victoria, Vancouver, Coquitlam, and Kelowna), consumers can enjoy a comfortable, country-club setting, where they finally have the financial control of buying direct.
