This month, in our ongoing campaign to introduce you to the family of MSI, we are highlighting two of our Sales Team members. We are happy to attach faces and personalities to the voices you hear and the emails you read. We have an ongoing campaign highlighting our many departments and the people who make the magic happen.
Chris Creelman is our most flamboyant Sales Representative. If you have received his personal marketing material, or you are one of his customers, you already know his wonderful outgoing personality that exudes his passion for his work, mixed with a charming touch of humor.
Chris joined MSI in November of 2011 when Citadel Communications closed its doors. He worked 13 years at Citadel during which time he added to his already extensive knowledge of commercial printing and sales. Prior to Citadel, Chris was a “Newspaper Ad Man” dating back to 1978 when newspapers were king of the information age. He has consistently sought out new technology and trends to stay at the forefront of direct marketing best practices.
With ink in Chris’ veins for 36 years, this home-grown Sacramentan knows how to keep his customers happy. He’s a specialist at creatively working with his clients to insure their jobs are done right, on time and produce the results intended.
Chris considers listening, humor and scrambling golf as 3 of his top skills. He has managed a wide variety of customers over the years including: Jackson Rancheria Casino, Crocker Art Museum, SMUD, Sacramento County, CSUS, IBM and numerous Associations and Ad Agencies. With over 50 mouths to feed, he’s always looking for more top-notch clients. Outside of work he spends most of his time with his wife Bernie, feeding and wranglin’ the 50+ animals on their small farm and howling at the moon.
This is a testimony from just one of Chris’s happy customers:
“I just heard that our first Pull-Tab redemption day was Extremely Successful, thanks again”.

Chris Ekasala came to MSI in May of 2007 starting out as a Customer Service Representative. It didn’t take long for Management to see his potential as a Sales Representative and he was soon on his way to a successful career in the Direct Marketing Sales.
Chris was not new to Direct Marketing before he joined MSI’s team. He was the Art Director for Intelligent Direct Marketing where he created direct mail campaigns for the auto industry--yes, Chris is a graphic designer as well as a top sales representative. Chris continues to use his design skills as an added value to some of his customers here at MSI.
Working at MSI affords our Sales Team the opportunity to engage with a wide variety of industries. Chris resonates well with the auto industry and his specialty of choice is the HVAC market. He has many satisfied and successful customers including Mike Rogers from Creative Media Partners who sent this testimony to Chris:
Chris, I love you man! The speed at which you work is rarely found in today's service providers. You make me look super responsive to my clients. And, when you make me look good it makes me infinitely loyal to you!
Mike Rogers, Creative Media Partners
When Chris is not representing MSI in the Sales function, he is spending family time with his two children Jordan, 17 and Caiden, 10. He is also passionate about his gym work outs and decorating his new home, inside and outside.
Please stop by the MSI Sales Team office when you can and meet the staff if you have not done so already. You will find a group of highly professional people ready to jump in and help you reach your goals.
