Elizabeth Langfelder has joined the Atlanta Jewish Times as an account manager. Langfelder brings a wealth of experience in sales, marketing, management, and customer relations. She is a long-time member of National Council of Jewish Women. She sat on the board for almost ten years with NCJW and developed an e-commerce selling platform to resell donated items, which generated additional operating funds for this non-profit organization in Atlanta.
Most of Langfelder’s career experience has been in hospitality management and wholesale food sales. Not-to-mention customer development and care. She enjoys taking care of high-profile customers with the most challenging demands. Her success was measured by the number of repeat customers and the longstanding partnerships that she developed. There is no challenge that she was unable to achieve. She is motivated by learning more about each of her customers’ needs and formulating a plan of action to accomplish the goals they set together.
Langfelder has lived most of her life in Sandy Springs where she raised her two children and is a member of Temple Sinai. She watched the growth of this Atlanta suburb become the dynamic city that it is now. She is a regular visitor of the Sandy Springs Farmers Market, which her late husband, Jeff Langfelder co-founded in 2010. Her family continues to stay involved in Jewish Atlanta’s philanthropic causes. February is her favorite month as she attends as many of the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival films as possible.
For fun, she enjoys cooking, especially Italian food. Making homemade pasta, where regional Italian dishes have become a specialty. Food and wine tours are on always her schedule. Langfelder’s most recent position with Farmers and Fishermen Purveyors further developed her customer service and sales skills which she will bring with her to the Atlanta Jewish Times team.
“I’m excited to join this vibrant team at the AJT.”
Ilyssa Klein has joined the Atlanta Jewish Times as an account manager. Klein brings a wealth of experience in sales, marketing, management, and customer relations.
A native of Long Island, N.Y., Klein moved to Atlanta after her parents purchased The Bagel Palace. Ilyssa regularly worked at the family restaurant and became a favorite of many patrons, earning herself the nickname, “The Bagel Princess.”
With a background in advertising, marketing and sales, Ilyssa has previously served as center director of Kaplan Test Prep, where she was responsible for product sales growth, managing various departments, educating, and training staff as well as the community, on Kaplan products.
Klein also coordinated with area schools and student organizations, including leading presentations of programs offered by Kaplan. Some of her other duties included managing the office budget and tracking sales growth.
“As a longtime member of the Atlanta Jewish community and reader of the AJT, I am excited to be joining the AJT team and contributing to an important outlet and voice in our community. I look forward to sharing my expertise in customer relations, sales, and marketing with the AJT.”
Ilyssa, and her husband, Chad, have two children: Emme, 10, and Jesse, 12. Emme attends Sarah Smith Elementary School and Jesse is a student at Sutton Middle School. Jesse is set to have his bar mitzvah in March at The Temple, where Ilyssa and her family are members.
