Our Executive Team
Milton G. Olekson Partner, President, & Chief Executive Officer
Recognized for his "roll-up your sleeves" approach to working with staff and clients, Milton's ("Milt") strong, wide-ranging management skills and his first-hand experience in nearly all aspects of AMI's services provides clients with expert assistance in strategy, campaign plan development, tactical implementation, and sales and donor development.
For more than 24 years, Milt has played an integral part in helping AMi optimize its staff and operations, providing vigorous and progressive leadership. He began his career at AMi in 1995 as Manager of Customer Service. He was promoted to Mailing Operations Manager in July 1996, Vice President of Production in May of 1997, Vice President of Sales and Marketing in January 2002, and Senior Vice President in June 2008.
In January 2011, when long-time AMi President Ken Gossett retired, Milt and AMi veterans Kerry Wash and Linh Vo didn't hesitate to take on running the company. As AMi's new President and CEO, Milt continues to instill his robust "award winning" methods toward employee development and education throughout AMi, and he continues to infuse his client relationships with personal attention and a sincere desire to see others succeed.
Milton's more than 35 years of business experience--including 30 years in the direct marketing services industry--includes executive leadership roles in sales and marketing, accounting and finance, data processing, personnel development, production, and inventory control.
