Testimonials

  • Chris Woollen, Division Sales Manager

    "Ed Hager's contribution to the Coca-Cola bottling system, and concurrently with the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, is a highlight reel of success. From promotions, to creative marketing ideas, to motivating a sales force Ed brings a calm that screams success. Ed is a man of honor. There are few like him. Ed understands business, has an extremely strong technical background and delivers solutions that ultimately make your business more successful. In a world that seems to over commit and under deliver Ed is a throw back in terms of values and futuristic in the resources his company has to offer."

  • Chuck Roskovich, Vice President, Atlanta Division

    "Joel Thompson is very familiar with our structure and call points within our organization. He is able to navigate within the corporate framework and support our divisional needs within the four states we operate. The structure of the Atlanta Division is very different than that within our other three divisions in Florida. He is a valuable resource for information, category expertise and market positioning with a true passion for the business. His professionalism and commitment to serve has been a valuable asset in the growth of the Atlanta Division."

    "Through my own personal experience, as well as hearing from other executives in the grocery industry, Ed Hager always delivers far more than is expected. I have had the pleasure of working with Ed Hager for many years, including while Ed served as a board member for the Georgia Food Industry Association (GFIA) for three years. While active on GFIA's board of directors, Ed was so well respected we compared him to EF Huttton - when Ed talked everyone listened. Ed's leadership experience with Coca-Cola and Kimberly Clark allow him the insight needed to assist a company in today's rapidly changing business environment."

  • John Speaker, VP/GM Midwest Area

    “I had the opportunity to see Joel Thompson in action each period at our Kroger account meetings. He was well respected by his peers and the customer. Joel had great communication skills both internally and externally. When the customer had a problem in Joel's region both the customer and I knew that Joel would correct the issue quickly and fix it so it would not happen again. Joel had an ability to develop and implement initiatives to increase internal efficiencies and create external business plans for customers and competitors.”
