Easley, S.C. – Effective January 2009, Chris Summa will fulfill the newly created role of the southeast district sales manager for Confluence Watersports. Summa, who will retain sales duties in Florida, will be responsible for full management of the southeast territory, which includes Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Florida.
â€œIt is with great pleasure that I announce the promotion of Chris Summa to district sales manager,â€ said Confluence Watersports vice president of sales, Shelly Moore. â€œThe success he has shown in his year and a half tenure as a sales rep, has prompted us to establish this position.
