Boynton Beach, FL (PRWEB) April 08, 2014
Source1 Purchasing announced the appointment of Gerri-Lynn Davis, a recognized prime distribution professional, as director of national accounts for the west coast of the USA. She will report to Ted Ingber, Vice President of Sales.
Ms. Davis will lead business development in states that are west of the Mississippi, driving awareness, support and new business for the supply chain management firm’s program that serves the lodging, leisure (restaurant, entertainment) and casino industries. She formerly was a new market manager for Sysco and Marketing Associate with another national prime distribution company.
"We are pleased to announce Gerri-Lynn Davis as our Director of National Accounts for the West Coast,” says Ted Ingber, VP of Sales. "Together with Ken Robinson, our Director of National Accounts for East Coast, we couldn't ask for two more respected and talented professionals to represent Source1 Purchasing across North America".
A new trend has started with many, multi-unit operators, management companies, restaurants and gaming facilities. In the quest to improve their purchasing programs, they are increasingly looking to procurement experts like Source1 Purchasing to manage their product guides and determine the best product or services.
Source1 Purchasing has a partnership with Sysco and Entegra to provide food and non-food products and services to operators in the lodging, leisure and gaming industries. When asked about her previous experience, Davis responded "When I worked at Sysco, I learned how well Source1 Purchasing helps solidify partnerships with operators. The Source1 program opens up new opportunities for all aspects of their operation beyond food and beverage supplies. In fact, we provide everything an operator requires from parking lot to rooftop."
"Source1 makes a difference for Operators. Of course we help them buy efficiently, but we do much more," Davis continued. "They have their food and other supply representatives, but we’re learning that operators want someone who can help them navigate the entire supply chain with a focus on offering real solutions and recent trends that have a favorable impact on the operation and the guest experience. From the linens in a resort to the vent cleaning in a restaurant, we have programs that deliver what the operation requires.
Anyone who has ever worked in a hotel or restaurant knows how chaotic any given day can be. Source1 delivers a greater sense of order based on experience as operators serving operators."
"I'm excited about being on the Source1 team," says Davis, "We can give operators real solutions to their operational challenges. We can help an operator have the buying power of a national chain. Suddenly, they have a lot more leverage.”
