Growth Trend Continues Across Cotton
Cotton is pleased to announce the addition of three new managers to support company operations across the Roofing, Logistics, and Culinary specialized divisions. During a month of increased operations due to Hurricane Matthew, for which Cotton’s disaster recovery crews are operating along the Atlantic coast – from Florida up through the Carolinas, and even in the Bahamas – the day to day operations of the other divisions continue to experience steady growth in their respective markets.
Ed Stanley joins Cotton’s Roofing division as VP of Roofing Services, after years of running his own successful multi-office roofing and construction business across the Midwest and Southern United States. Stanley’s working relationship with Cotton dates back eleven years since first being engaged as a subcontractor during Cotton’s Hurricane Katrina response. Stanley’s entrepreneurial drive and keen marketing sense will be a force multiplier for Cotton as the roofing division expands amid advancing technologies in the marketplace.
Trey Trammell joins the team as Sales Director for Cotton Logistics. Trammell will manage the sales initiatives for the company’s lodging and culinary operations of its Texas Oil and Gas Division. Though the state of the market creates a challenging playing field, Trammell is no stranger to the ever-changing operational climate, having grown up in a family rich in Texas oil and gas traditions. Trammell brings with him extensive industry knowledge from a lifetime of relationships as well as proven sales results from his previous assignment with a Texas-based crew logistics firm. Trammell will play an integral role in fostering relationships both new and existing, as he seeks out new ventures for Cotton Logistics in an evolving industry.
Erin Cornelius joins Cotton Culinary as Director of Corporate Catering with over fifteen years of experience in the food service industry. In her most recent role as Food and Nutrition Services Manager for a school district of over 49,000 students, Cornelius’ department saw an increase in sales volume by 250% for event banquets, among many other accomplishments. Cornelius’ past experience within a restaurant setting and in managing the catering services for multiple facilities within a large school system, demonstrates her capacity to succeed in Cotton’s fast-paced and expanding Corporate Catering division. Her strong leadership and operational skills paired with her customer service background will be a great asset as she builds her team.
This year, Cotton is excited to celebrate its 20th year anniversary. Cotton will continue to increase efficiencies for our clients through the launch of new service lines and the addition of personnel to support those services.
