ABOUT ARENA

 

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena..."

CLAY GOFORTH

SALES DIRECTOR

I am a Senior Level CPG Sales Director and retail enthusiast. I have over 11 years of account management experience with the last 6 specific to CPG. I have built relationships with merchants from Walmart and Sam's Club to PetSmart and Tractor Supply across various categories from Pets to Sporting Goods and others in between. I approach relationships and account management through active listening, retail problem solving, info-centric sales strategies, and respect for the individual. My non-traditional CPG background equips me with a unique collection of experiences (in finance, digital and technology, branding and marketing, business management, and product development) that affords me the ability to understand and approach account management from a comprehensive viewpoint, not just selling in the next item.
