About Us

National Sales & Marketing Executives (NSME), a new professional association, provides high-caliber educational and valuable networking opportunities for sales and marketing leaders in the greater Akron/Canton region.

“Building on a 52-year legacy as an affiliate with Sales and Marketing Executives International (SMEI), our Akron/Canton NSME group has more than 50 members who provide sales and marketing expertise for a wide range of businesses and non-profit organizations,” explains Thomas W. Schmidt, NSME president. “We blend our broad experiences and skills to create a high-energy, thought leadership organization that provides cutting-edge information at our monthly seminars and dinner programs.”

Monthly meetings feature many of the foremost leaders in the region. From September through May, NSME Akron/Canton offers monthly dinner programs and in-depth workshops on topics relevant to sales and marketing professionals, frequently at The Tangier in Akron.   During the summer months, NSME hosts luncheon programs at various locations in Canton and Akron.

NSME Akron/Canton members continue many of the popular events they hosted for decades, including the annual Achievements in Excellence™ awards program that honors the top Executive of the Year, Community Leader of the year, and Distinguished Sales and Marketing professionals. The next awards program will be held February 23, 2016.

In addition, NSME Akron/Canton works with leading area universities to provide mentoring and internship opportunities for students enrolled in sales and marketing programs.
