HOMETOWN:

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT TROPICAL?
17 years

 

A TYPICAL DAY AT TROPICAL CONSISTS OF:
Taking care of my customers, introducing them to new products and seeking out new prospects is the core of my business model. Building relationships is the most important part of being a team player for both myself, customers and future prospects. Treating everyone as you would like to be treated is my motto and the sales will follow.

FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT WORKING AT TROPICAL?
I really enjoy calling on our established and future customers. Face-to-face interaction with our customer base is the key. You have to have tact in order to be a good sales person. Relationship selling is what makes a good sales person. Our company offers both a manufacturing and distributing diversification. I stand behind our quality and unique products offered.

FAVORITE TROPICAL PRODUCTS:
Of course I love all of our snack mixes, but my favorite snack mixes are The Big Cheese® and Wild about Wasabi®. Both of these mixes are very flavor dynamic.

IF YOU COULD CREATE YOUR OWN CUSTOM TROPICAL SNACK MIX, THE INGREDIENTS WOULD BE:
Peanuts R/S, wasabi soy sauce cashews, hot and spicy sesame sticks, edamame beans R/S, spicy churritos and sweet chili & line noodles.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
I really enjoy fly fishing and working in my yard and garden when I get the opportunity.
