Detroit, MI — June 11, 2013 Sandler & Travis Trade Advisory Services is pleased to announce the promotion of Sandy Dersa to the position of vice president of human resources. Effective June 1, Dersa will oversee all human resource efforts for STTAS, a leading international trade and managed services consulting firm.
