In his 20-year sales career, Herod has held multiple sales management and leadership positions. Herod brings big brand sales experience from PepsiCo in the consumer-packaged goods industry; he delivered operational expertise as a GM for Walmart in the retail sector; and he oversaw national account sales in the foodservice equipment, smallwares and disposable segment at TriMark South.
