Jack Cooper

Key Account Executive- Northern Florida and Alabama

 

Jack began his retail career during High School working for TG & Y variety stores.  He learned the basics in hardware, automotives and sporting goods.  He was fortunate in being employed with the company for all four years until he graduated.

 In 1985 Jack went to work with Winn Dixie Stores Inc where he started on the stock crew and advanced into management.  He soon became the Manager of the Grocery Department stock crew.  His career progressed as he subsequently managed the dairy, frozen food and produce departments.  He then was promoted to Assistant Manager of a Winn Dixie store.  Over the years, Jack worked at each Winn Dixie location in the Tallahassee area during his six and half years that he was employed by Winn Dixie.  During the 1980’s Winn Dixie was the biggest grocery chain in the South and Jack honed his grocery and merchandising skills in this environment.

 His career progressed when he was hired by the Keebler Cookie Company where he ran a route from Tallahassee to Marianna Florida.  This is when Jack learned how to increase sales through marketing and promotions.  Two years later in 1993 he would receive more experience with Fine Foods/Premium Foods (a specialty food distributor) where he further honed his selling skills by working every major Grocery store in South Georgia and North Florida. 

The last fourteen years has worked for Advantage Sales and Marketing, where he was a Sales Representative for Publix, Winn Dixie and other major grocery stores in the Florida panhandle.

 Jack joined Koch and Associates in March of 2010 where he is putting his cumulative 30 years of experience and countless local relationships to work.  Jack is our resident expert on Super Valu Quincy retailers.
