Hello, my name is Joey Rogers. I am an outside sales representative for Swift Supply in Pensacola. I am 29 years old, married to my high school sweetheart, have 3 wonderful kids, enjoy all sports, and have been in the lumber business my whole working career. I started with Cantonment Building Material in the summer of 2002 as an outside yard man where I primarily took care of customers and hand loaded lumber into our bins. Over the next 12 years I advanced up the ladder with them. I moved from working in the yard, to yard assistant foreman, to yard foreman, to delivery driver, to lumber estimator, to inside sales, to outside sales, to assistant manager, and finally to general manager. As manager I also handled all of our accounting work. I feel lucky to have been able to spend time doing all jobs possible in the lumber business. With each job I learned valuable skills that help me with being a more knowledgeable salesman. Also I am able to relate more with my coworkers because I have experience in their areas and am able to communicate better with our customers.
Making the switch to Swift Supply has been a great, well needed change for me. I am really enjoying working with my co-workers and watching our Swift store grow as a whole. Also it is really nice to work side by side with Larry Blake who I previously worked with at Cantonment Building for many years. The future for Swift looks very bright and I hope I can be fortunate enough to be a part of it for many years to come. GO NOLES!!
