About our Team

Tony Sarantakis, President

Prior to founding AJS Communications, Tony Sarantakis worked at Irving-Cloud Publishing Company and National Retail Hardware Association (NRHA) for more than 20 years. Tony led the Irving-Cloud sales staff and was in charge of promotions and marketing. He won the Top Salesman Award for five consecutive years.


At NRHA, Tony was the Top Salesman for 16 years and was promoted to Vice President of Sales and Publisher of the new trade magazine, Home Improvement Data, which was profitable with the first issue. Tony's sales and marketing abilities took Do-It-Yourself Retailing from a $700,000 territory to a $1.8 million territory within two years, and put four competitors out of business.


As President of AJS Communications, Tony Sarantakis is instrumental in the development, sales and introduction of several special interest magazines, as well as new business development for profitable, highly respected trade publications.
