Andrew transitioned to the National Accounts Team from the Great Lakes West Project Management team, which he joined in 2019. Andrew is a former Marine, having served 4 ½ years based in North Carolina including some time in Afghanistan as a diesel mechanic.
After 2 surgeries on his leg Andrew left the Marines and came home to Kalamazoo, MI, where he worked as Sales Manager for Verizon for 3 years before joining the Great Lakes West team. “I never knew this industry even existed before I met Todd Heeter (President of Great Lakes West)!”, Andrew said. After being introduced to Todd at their Church, it was only a matter of weeks before he joined the GLW team.
Andrew and his wife Taylor have 2 dogs, Rex and Fitz, and love to work out together, hike, and watch Spartan Football! They escape any chance they get to the beaches of Ft. Myers, Florida. One fun thing they like to do is getting to know the local bar owners in town. One of Andrew’s favorite aspects of the foodservice industry is “…now that I know about all the equipment it’s more fun to talk about the industry to the owners when we go out.”
Andrew will continue to be based at the Great Lakes West office in Mattawan, MI
