Travis Huff has been named business development manager at GPA. Serving Southern California, Huff will focus on bringing greater innovation and profitability to customers in this market.
Huff has been with GPA for the past two years as an inside sales representative based out of their Chicago headquarters, serving customers across the western half of the United States.
With his relocation at the beginning of October 2017, Huff has spent the past weeks meeting with existing GPA customers and learning about their unique needs. He will split his time between local accounts while continuing to support key customer relationships developed during his time in inside sales.
“We are very excited to have Travis join us in Southern California as our newest team member,” says Jim Bender, GPA’s area VP for the West region. “Thanks to his inside sales experience at GPA, Travis is uniquely positioned to support our customers and make an immediate positive impact. We look forward to the knowledge and enthusiasm Travis will bring to the market and the successes that lie ahead in his new role.”
Huff holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Ohio State University, where he also studied business. Prior to joining GPA, he worked for a magazine publishing company, where he served as an account executive.
