League’s Starting Line Up, OneCoast Sales Team Edition: Susan Kirtland

Many people helped get League where we are today, and we enjoy featuring those who have been part of our success. We’ve grown League with good old-fashioned hard work and determination, and the OneCoast Collegiate Sales Reps who sell League to stores. Today we’d love to introduce you to Susan Kirtland!

Susan started representing League in January of 2015. Like most of our OneCoast sales team, she loves League products. It’s hard for her to pick a favorite product, however.

“This is a very difficult question,” she said. “There are so many great pieces. In addition, as new items are added to the line, my favorites change. Currently, my favorite piece is the 1636 Snap up.  I think anyone can wear this garment. I love the large snaps that run along the neckline, as well as the open bottom, makes it work well with leggings or jeans.

We asked Susan what her customers say about League. “They always tell me that they love the feel of the fabrics,” she said. “The quality of the garments as well as the attention to all the details in the construction of each piece. In addition, people recognize what great lengths League goes to caring for their employees in El Salvador. It is always fun to tell customers all the amazing things that are happening there.  It is always a feel-good story.”

What most people might not know about Susan is she is multilingual. “I speak a lot of Spanish,” she told us.

Susan also recently bought a new place. “I just moved into a new house so I am enjoying decorating my new spaces as well as gardening, photography, and baking. I also hope to slow down a bit personally to enjoy my new house and do some volunteering!”

For 2019, Susan says she hopes to increase her sales and exceed her goals. She’s fueled in her mission by the book Good To Great by Jim Collins. As Mr. Collins says in his book, “The real question is not, “Why greatness?” but “What work makes you feel compelled to try to create greatness?” 

We also think Susan is pretty great. Thanks, Susan for all you do for League!
