Chicago, IL – Jesse R. Lopez, founder and CEO of SourceOne™ Global Partners, has announced the appointment of Sam Davidson as Marketing Manager.
Davidson graduated from DePaul University in Chicago, IL where he received degrees in mass media and marketing. During his years at DePaul, Davidson was a standout Division-I athlete and was nominated for the prestigious Conference-USA Scholar-Athlete of the Year award; he was also elected to serve as the chief-liaison for DePaul student-athletes. He currently sits on the DePaul Athletics Advisory Board. After graduation, Davidson combined his marketing and media education with his knowledge of sports by serving as a Regional and National Marketing Associate for Adidas. Here he trained hundreds of retail stores across the country about products, services and market trends, which led to dynamic increases in sales during the company’s most aggressive marketing efforts ever in the United States.

His experience working with marketing trends, retail merchandising, and other retail- and consumer-focused promotional programs has helped us develop co-promotion programs that deliver business results for our customers and global partners. Sam has been instrumental in growing sales of our flagship products such as Sytrinol™, T3-PalmSource™ tocotrienols, GammaSource®, SterolSource® 300 plant sterols, Cardio-E™, and our family of Cholesstrinol™ products. We look forward to Sam to continue to create superior consumer awareness.”
