Jonathan Peeples has joined Hubbard LLC to fill the position of southeast region sales manager.

Peeples will have the sales responsibilities for this region that includes Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and a portion of southeast Tennessee. Peeples reports to Sean Holcombe, sales and technical service director for U.S. and Canada.

Peeples has 25 years of experience in the poultry industry in the southeast region holding various management positions in live production, most recently as Live Production Manager with a large integrator in north Georgia. His many years of experience and vast contacts in this region have him ideally suited to increase the market share of Hubbard products in the region.

His location in north Georgia is ideal, the company states, given the large concentration of poultry companies in that region. The company says the addition of Peeples to the group will continue the forward momentum with the successful introduction of the Hubbard Classic female and the continued dominance of the M99 male in the market place.
