Ms. McCallum joined the company in 1999 as Account Executive and quickly

of sales experience with several premium cosmetics manufacturers. McCallum has
been with Iron Grip for 5 years.
I've had the privilege of working with Donna for many years, both at Iron Grip

experience and personal commitment to her work has helped us develop an
outstanding team of professional and dedicated Account Executives, and her
skills at developing relationships with her accounts has helped us to forge
