CHICO, Calif. (August 22, 2017) – Klean Kanteen, the leader in reusable stainless-steel food and beverage solutions, adds to its robust international sales team with the hiring of Jennefer Traynor. Traynor joins the team as the new International Sales Manager supporting all of Klean’s international distributors will be based at the company headquarters in Chico, California.

“Jennefer comes to Klean with a solid background in international sales and experience with international logistics, “said Michael Duffy, Director of Sales at Klean Kanteen. “With distribution in 40 plus countries worldwide, Klean is poised to support grassroots change as part of the global movement to break the single-use habit. Jenn’s of travel and commitment to sustainability make her a natural fit for our team, and we look forward to seeing the positive influence she will have on our international sales.”

Previously, Traynor spent two years in Hood River, Oregon, working for well-known outdoor brand Dakine before being transferred to their European headquarters in France, where she continued to work for the brand as a distributor coordinator for two and a half years. After her work with Dakine, Traynor relocated to Berlin, Germany, where she spent three years as the Export Manager for Best Kiteboarding, managing global sales and distribution, brand management and territory expansion in all non-direct countries in Europe, as well as Africa, the Middle East, Asia and South America. Most recently, Traynor returned to Oregon and continued handling global sales and distribution for Best Kiteboarding.

Outside the office, Traynor is either mountain biking, kiteboarding or teaching yoga. She is also an avid traveler, as she has lived about a decade of her life abroad, including stints in China, France, Germany, Argentina and Chile. She is passionate about the outdoors, living an active lifestyle and is working toward receiving her Yoga Teacher Training certificate in Sustainable Vinyasa.
