I have been with Palmer Candy since 1987 when I started on a route truck. I quickly became familiar with our customers and entered into the sales division as the Wholesale Manager in 1992. After the closing of the wholesale division in 2003, I became the National Sales Manager then was named to my current position in 2006. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and getting in some time on the golf course.
I'm the Eastern Regional Sales Manager at Palmer Candy. I have over 25 years of sales and management experience in the Bakery, Grocery, and Food Service industry. I'm a family-oriented person and believe in treating customers like family. It's important to follow through with any and all questions or issues in a timely manner as I would want for myself. When not working its a pleasure for my wife, Jeannie, and I to spend time with our children and grandchildren. I also love to do a little fishing.
Having grown up in a military family, I have lived all over the world but have called San Antonio, TX home since 2001. I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary and Special Education from the University of Wyoming. I taught special education for 13 years and when I decided to make a career change, I found my niche in the food industry. I have worked in various aspects of food sales, from customer service to regional manager, primarily focused on bakery. I am delighted to be a part of the Palmer team and I am eager to help grow our business and yours!
I started working at Palmer Candy in the warehouse the day after I turned 18 and worked here every summer while attending Morningside College. After a brief time in Bentonville, Arkansas, I returned to Palmer Candy and took over a sales role. I take great pride in my job due to the great people I work with and the great products we sell. When I am not working, I enjoy golfing, running and spending time with my family and friends.
Over 32 years ago, I started in the candy industry working for a family owned candy & cookie company located in the Midwest. Working my way up and through various classes of trade and parts of the United States has given me the knowledge and background needed to help grow their business. With some ownership changes and buy outs by investors, the candy stayed relatively the same. Here at Palmer Candy, a family owned candy company, I manage Bakery, Branded Candy and the well-known Midwest Bing candy bars. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, especially with my grandkids, but also like to get in some golf every now and then.
