Alumni Spotlight–Bryce Patrick, Altria

Eller PDC Coordinator Alumni Stories

Bryce Patrick studied Marketing and is currently working for Altria as a Territory Sales Manager.

Why did you choose to work for Altria? I chose to work for Altria for many reasons, but the most valuable to me is their development program and growth within the company.  I am constantly getting feedback, and learning how to become a more successful sales woman.   In regards to growth, the company only promotes within, which I truly admire.  I was put on track for promotion the day I started.

Tell us about your job title and responsibilities. As a Territory Sales Manager, I have 120 stores throughout the west side of PHX that make up, on average, 15 million dollars in annual sales. I meet with the store managers, discuss their business and grow their sales.

What has been the hardest part about transitioning into full time employment after college? Transitioning from B-cohort in Eller to walking up at 6:00am has definitely been the hardest adjustment for me (it is getting easier though J).

What is your fondest Eller memory? My favorite Eller memory was attending the PDC launch party with Eller College Student Council, and getting to meet all of the fantastic donors who contributed to the new PDC!
