HENDERSON, Nev. – Henderson, Nevada-based Quertle LLC has named Boston-based Sam Vukelich chief sales officer. Vukelich brings to the company more than 25 years of technology sales experience in the Boston area.

“Sam’s experience in the field will be an integral factor in Quertle’s evolution in its sales program,” said Jeff Saffer, Quertle president and CEO. “His success at both start-up and established ventures gives him the insight needed to propel a company that has the qualities of both.”

Previously, Vukelich served as vice president of mHealth for SourceRaven, a full-service mobile engagement agency that provides technology solutions for a diverse group of industries.

He also sits on an advisory board of a Rhode Island technology company. He holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the Canada-based McMaster University.

“As soon as [founders] Jeff and Vicki asked me to join the team, I knew it was a good fit,” Vukelich said. “Quertle is an exceptional company with great management, company culture and an elegant suite of products, well ahead of the curve.”
