Teletrade, a Spectrum Group International, Inc. subsidiary and Internet auctioneer of certified coins and currency, announced Oct. 13 that Corey Maita, co-founder of Gainesville Coins, was to join Teletrade as vice president of business development beginning in November.
Maita’s career in numismatics began when he was a sophomore at the University of Florida when he and two partners founded Gainesville Coins in Lutz, Fla. First selling primarily on eBay, Maita and his partners transitioned Gainesville from eBay to their own e-commerce-focused company website and eventually grew the company to accomplish $300 million in annual sales.
“Corey has a well established and proven record of success in numismatic e-commerce that will be instrumental in taking Teletrade’s services to the next level,” said Greg Roberts, CEO of Spectrum Group.
Established in 1986, Teletrade has more than 189,000 registered bidders and more than 300,000 lots featured in its auction system each year. Visit www.teletrade.com for more information.
