C&S Wholesale Grocers

Senior Business Manager


I am responsible for building the business and adding sales with my customers. I act as the liaison between the customer and C&S Wholesale Grocers, negotiating and working directly with all levels of management. I’m accountable for building customer relations and establishing an in-depth working relationship with them. I work in a very fast-paced environment, and have to collaborate with both the customer and my internal management and support staff. I have to have insight into the workings of both the customer and my company. I provide ongoing assessment and monitoring of the accounts and business. I’m responsible for the managing, training and coaching of my internal group. As the on-site leader/project manager, I prepare quarterly and year-end business reviews along with seasonal planning, provide budget information along with business changes as they happen, and coordinate special projects and initiatives with C&S and our customers.
