New Mexico State University student earns #3 scholarship for sales performance

Fall 2012 #3 Vector Marketing All-American Scholarship Winner, Nickolas Jackson

Wilmington, DE (January 24, 2013) – Nickolas Jackson, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, has received an All-American Scholarship for his outstanding sales achievement with Vector Marketing, the company that sells Cutco Cutlery. With more than 40,000 sales representatives, Jackson ranked #3, for the most recent campaign. This is the second time Jackson has won a scholarship with the company. He began working with Vector in the summer of 2010.

The Vector Marketing All-American scholarship program salutes those students who have excelled in their roles as sales representatives, while maintaining the demanding life of a college student. Each year, Vector recognizes its top 100 sales representatives, during three separate scholarship competitions.

Jackson is a junior management and marketing double major at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. In addition to his sales achievements, Jackson has worked with the company as an assistant manager, sales manager, and branch manager - when he ran his own Vector office for a summer. He plans to apply to become a Cutco sales professional (CSP) later in 2013. The CSP position is reserved for the most serious representatives looking to sell Cutco as a career.

“Vector has truly taught me that anything is possible with the right amount of hard work and dedication. I know that the great experience I have gained with this company will continue to catapult me far ahead of my peers and forever put me in a position of choice throughout my life,” says Jackson.
