Abu-Hatoum, who has more than 30 years of experience in IT and business technology, joined Sellars in 2020.

“Yusuf is a passionate strategist who modernized our customer service department by introducing a new platform and creating a coaching model that elevates our employees and encourages their ongoing growth and development so they can deliver a superior experience that’s focused on anticipating customer needs and providing solutions,” says Tom Sellars, CEO of Sellars, in a June 28 news release.
