The Meridian-based web marketing agency, Tribute Media, has hired Sloane Bellante as its Director of Sales. In addition to conducting client consultations and representing Tribute Media at networking and community events, Bellante will be responsible for leading and growing the sales department.
Bellante has more than 15 years of sales and management experience, which includes positions with numerous businesses in the medical device industry. In October 2006, Bellante co-founded the Connecticut-based business Sleep Solutions, a company offering treatment and medical supplies to people suffering from sleep-related breathing disorders.
Bellante also served as Sleep Solutions' President of Business Development. In that role, she created and implemented a sales plan in 2007 that resulted in revenue growth of 1043%. During her tenure, she also negotiated and executed contracts with Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross and numerous regional payers.

After selling Sleep Solutions in 2015, Bellante moved to Boise, Idaho with her family--husband Vinnie and their two sons, Rocco and River. Her business development leadership will be an invaluable addition to Tribute Media, which won the Best Places to Work in Idaho award for micro companies in 2017.
