Congratulations to Doug Rogers, longtime field sales rep who is retiring today after 18 years at Arcadia Publishing, Charleston, S.C. Before that, he worked at Waldenbooks for nearly 20 years. He went on sales trips 45 weeks of the year, selling to bookstores in just about every state. In the past few years, he's worked closer to home as a sales rep on the independent sales team in the Southeast region. Rogers has lived for most of his life in the small town of Camden, S.C., and, in his retirement, he said, "I know I want to give back to the town that has supported me so nicely during my time on the road."
Arcadia said that Rogers's "warm and genuine approach has endeared him to thousands of customers, authors and coworkers."
