Billy Hufford has joined the staff at Hubbard LLC as its Western Region sales manager. Hufford, who assumed the new position at the end of May, will have sales responsibilities for the region that includes Arkansas, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Colorado and California.
Hufford has previously held various positions in the pork and poultry production industries. This prior experience gives him a thorough background and understanding of the integrated poultry industry and should have him well- equipped to increase sales of Hubbard products in this region, the company stated.
Hufford is ideally located in Northwest Arkansas where Hubbard products continue to maintain a large presence in all of the poultry companies in the region. He will report directly to Sean Holcombe, Hubbard director of sales and technical service, U.S. and Canada.
“I am confident that under Billy’s management we will see a further increase in market share of Hubbard products in this region, specifically on the Hubbard Classic female as we continue its introduction into the North American market,” Holcome said.
The addition of Hufford gives Hubbard a complete U.S. sales staff. Larry Long continues his duties as sales manager for the Southeast Region and Warren Harris continues his duties as Mid-Atlantic sales manager.
Hubbard, with a presence in more than 100 countries worldwide, is owned by parent company Groupe Grimaud.
