Calvin Crosby: Calvin Crosby has proven to be one of the most ‘Dynamic” Sales Representative in the Health and Beauty field for many years. Calvin brings 35 years of experience filled with knowledge and a understanding of doing business in today’s global market. Calvin often says to others “you only get old when your mind is closed to learning”.  He is still learning from others.

On January 5, 1987 Calvin challenged himself by starting his own Sales & Marketing firm under the name of Advantage Sales & Marketing Company. Under that company’s umbrella he represented Dark &Lovely (now under Soft Sheen Carson),  Scientific Research, Lustrasilk, Imperial Dax Company, E. Davis and Lovely 335. With his business savvy Calvin grew a small independent Broker firm business from $1.6 million in sales a year to $13 million a year as a one man operation.  In 2005 when the business climate changed for Brokers due to smaller manufacturer buyouts to larger manufacturers  Calvin Brokered as a private label independent contractor with United One Laboratories and American Beauty Company in Tulsa Oklahoma.

In 2011 Calvin entered the Health & Beauty market again by taking a General Sales Manager Position with Professional Products Unlimited, Inc.  His responsibility to the company was to do what he did best;create, explore, and find new channels of distribution. During this period he targeted Walgreens and Sally Beauty Company, two major accounts, to make them a destination for several brands including Groganics and Jamaican Black Castor Oil.  In this season business soared by adding additional sales to grow the business in record sales increments over a 3 year period from $7.6 million to $9.4 and $11.3 million respectfully.

Calvin’s goals are still unchanged;  to create, explore and find new channels of distribution for the companies he represents in the marketplace with one exception – he wants to take the youth of today & give back the same ideas and knowledge that he’s learned ‘to create, explore and find new channels distribution not just in this industry but in Life’.
