“When I heard about the idea of Wreaths Across America, I fell in love with the concept of honoring our military.”
SENIOR MANAGER OF SALES AND MARKETING, PILOT COMPANY
WHAT IS YOUR ROLE IN THE INDUSTRY?
I’ve been with Pilot Flying J for nearly 30 years in marketing, business and operational roles. PFJ is the largest operator of travel centers in North America whose core customer base is truck drivers.
WHAT IS SOMETHING FROM YOUR CAREER YOU ARE PROUD OF?
In 2017, I was presented as the third recipient of the James Prout Spirit of Giving Award by Wreaths Across America for my continued service and dedication to the organization. For many years, I have been involved with Wreaths Across America, the organization that organizes wreath-laying ceremonies at the graves of fallen soldiers in military cemeteries across the country during the holiday season. It is something I am very proud to take part in. Pilot’s program allows portions of proceeds from coffee sales across the truck stop provider’s 700-plus locations to go directly to fund Wreaths Across America.
