KWIPPED Inc., a Wilmington-based the online B2B equipment rental marketplace, recently announced Leo Andrades and Gabe Stabile have been hired to fill two open account executive positions with the company.
Andrades joins KWIPPED after moving to Wilmington from Maui, Hawaii where he ran his own stand-up paddleboard yoga business, according to a press release. He is also actively involved in Aerospace Medical Services for the U.S. Air Force Reserves.
“The chance to help a young business grow and to do it in such a high-energy, entrepreneurial environment made this an easy career decision for me,” Andrades said of his reasoning for joining the KWIPPED.
Stabile’s new role at KWIPPED comes after transitioning from his previous position as a senior loan officer with CrossCountry Mortgage.
“I knew from researching the business KWIPPED was a great idea with a lot of potential, but after I met the team and understood their vision and passion, I knew I wanted to be a part of it and snatched up the opportunity when they offered it to me,” Stabile said.
Andrades and Stabile will report to supplier KWIPPED Sales Manager Charlie Dickinson.
“Partnering with quality suppliers with the ability and willingness to meet our rental customers needs is the key to our business' success. The primary responsibility of these new positions is to continue to expand our global supplier network and ensure our suppliers are delivering a high standard of quality to our online users,” KWIPPED Founder and CEO Robert Preville, said in the release.
Preville owns the Greater Wilmington Business Journal with publisher Rob Kaiser. Preville and Kaiser are part owners of KWIPPED.
