Giant USA boosts retail development team

Published May 6, 2013

NEWBURY PARK, CA (BRAIN) — Augmenting its retail development team, Giant USA has promoted Josh Fonner to West regional retail services manager.

In his new role, Fonner will work to build new Giant Retail Partnership (GRP) businesses in the Western half of the U.S. and enhance relationships with existing GRP retailers. Fonner previously was Giant’s East Regional Sales Manager.

“Josh joins Gregg Frederick, our East regional retail services manager, to bolster our GRP success. Having two regional retail services managers driving at the ground level means more one-on-one time and improved service with our best retailers, and more speed in developing those retailers who want to elevate the Giant brand in their businesses,” said John “JT” Thomspon, executive sales director for Giant USA.

The Giant Retail Partnership program offers exclusive retail support such as priority product availability, store operation support, business planning, marketing initiatives and elevated visual presentation. 

Fonner will relocate from Lake Placid, New York, to Southern California to work out of Giant’s Newbury Park headquarters.
