Featured Speaker:   Leslie Niemeyer

I joined the Sysco St. Louis team in July 2003 as a Marketing Associate (Sales Consultant) in rural Northeast Missouri. I spent almost 15 years growing my territory, relationships and knowledge before I was fortunate enough to join our Business Resource Team in STL as the Business Resource Consultant. I spent two years there before the exciting move to our brand new Centralized Business Resource Team in October. My passion is our customers; I want nothing more than for them to succeed. We have the tools and resources and my role is to share them with our team and our customers.
