"Ray's credentials align with our core competencies," said Bill Horrigan, Vice President of Sales & Marketing of Tribute. "He will be very hands-on in helping us expand our footprint and grow our business.”
Kimberlie MacGregor joins Tribute as a TrulinX Support Representative. She will be responsible for connecting with customers to assist with and troubleshoot issues while providing quality customer service.
