In our monthly feature, Meet the Tropical Team, we’ll introduce you to some of the people who make Tropical such a wonderful company. This month meet Diana, who is a Senior Territory Manager out of our Orlando office.

NAME:
Diana McGinty

HOMETOWN:
Boston, MA

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT TROPICAL?
9 1/2 years

A TYPICAL DAY AT TROPICAL CONSISTS OF:
A day in the life of a Territory Manger consists of early mornings preparing for a day on the road. Daily travel throughout the territory, meeting with customers as well as prospecting new customers. Doing whatever it takes as a team to assist them in strategic planning, merchandising, orders, demos and growing their business to be as successful as possible! Basically I’m here to be a trusted adviser and make the process very easy for our customers to meet their needs.

FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT WORKING AT TROPICAL?
My favorite thing by far is the team of people I work with. Tropical is a family-owned business and they treat you like family! I also love our customers. It’s been such a pleasure to partner with them for almost 10 years! I’ve gotten to know them personally through the years as well and it’s very rewarding.

FAVORITE TROPICAL PRODUCTS:
Happy Hour ROCKS MY WORLD! It’s a well-balanced sweet, salty and spicy blend.

IF YOU COULD CREATE YOUR OWN CUSTOM TROPICAL SNACK MIX, THE INGREDIENTS WOULD BE:
These are a MUST and the best you’ll ever have:
Butter Toffee Peanuts and Praline Pecans

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
Outside of work, I’m a wife who is trying to stay sane as I have two teenage children! Seriously, it doesn’t get any better than family. I’m truly blessed! We really enjoy each others company and the simple pleasures of life here in Florida.
