Marc Gregoire, Territory Manager

In our Celebrating Team Tropical series, we commemorate our employees’ work anniversaries by getting to know them and their role at Tropical better. Meet Marc who is a Territory Manager in our corporate Charlotte office and is celebrating 9 YEARS with the company.

Tell us about your role at Tropical:

I have worked at Tropical for 9 years and I am the Territory Manager for the state of South Carolina. Additionally, I work with Foodservice Distributors in both North and South Carolina.

What’s your favorite part of your job?

My favorite part of the job is the interaction with my customers. I have established great rapport over the years. None of this would be possible without the help of my team at Tropical though.

What project/success are you most proud of here?

I am proud of my success coordinating the Charlotte Crop Walk for a number of years. The Crop Walk is an annual event with proceeds going to help provide food both locally and around the world.We have an increasing number of employees participating every year.

What’s your favorite memory from working here?

My favorite memories of working at Tropical are the good nature times that take place in the office on a daily basis. We have fun and work hard.

What is on your wish list for your next five years here?

Continue to be an industry leader and continue to launch new lines.

What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?

I would be a History Teacher and Track Coach at the University level.

If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?

Bo Schembechler, Former Head Football Coach at the University of Michigan as well as a Graduate of Miami University, Oxford Ohio. Bo was all about teamwork and his mantra was “The Team, The Team, The Team”. I have tried to follow his teachings through the years.

Tell us something that might surprise us about you:

Believe it or not, I ran track at Miami University. I was also a fairly decent hockey player. I collect gargoyles and my current collection totals 25. I also enjoy Broadway plays.

If they made a movie of your life, who would play you?
