Grand Trunk Adds Outdoor Industry Veteran as Sales Representative

John Horsnell to focus on Grand Trunk’s continued growth in key Midwestern states.

After all, he has worked in the industry since 1986 and has served in a wide variety of capacities, including store manager, sales representative, and territory manager. Today, he is pleased to bring his diverse experience and strong industry relationships to Grand Trunk. As the company's new sales representative, Horsnell will focus on maximizing growth for Grand Trunk in numerous Midwestern states, including Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Missouri.

“In keeping with our company's strong Midwestern roots, we certainly recognize an opportunity for continued growth in this territory,” said Kevin Kaiser, president and co-founder of Grand Trunk. “We're very pleased to welcome John to the Grand Trunk team. In addition to having very solid experience, he also brings great integrity and a strong work ethic to the table. So, he's a natural fit and will be able to greatly help us extend and enhance the sales and outreach initiatives already in place here.”
