business news in context, analysis with attitude

Connecticut-based wholesaler Bozzuto’s announced a reorganization of its sales force into three geographic regions: west east, and south. The move comes in responses to rapid growth the company has been experiencing of late, in part because of the regional swap between Supervalu and C&S Wholesalers that took place last year.

Ray Jacques, the company's former sales director for Independent Sales, was named Sales Director of the newly established West Sales Region, which includes western Connecticut, western Massachusetts, Long Island, and the rest of New York State.

Steve Traun, the company’s former director of New Business Development within New England, was named Sales Director of the newly established East Sales Region, which will include eastern Connecticut and eastern Massachusetts, along with Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

Richard Herrmann, the company's manager of New Business Development, was named Sales Director of the newly established South Sales Region, which includes New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and the Washington DC area.

Jacques, Traun and Herrmann will all report directly to Dan Brock, Bozzuto’s Vice President of Sales.

In other changes, Jeff Antil, previously Retail Sales Counselor at Bozzuto’s, has been promoted to Manager, New Business Development.
