HONOLULU — Hawaiian Springs, LLC, a Hawaii-based premium natural water bottler, announced that two new sales leaders have joined the company. Area Sales Managers Robert Bucky and Heather Pence have joined the Costa Mesa office and Honolulu office, respectively. In these roles, Bucky and Pence will be responsible for forging new partnerships for the brand in the Western region and throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
“Rob and Heather bring both an enthusiasm for the brand and valuable industry experience to our team,” says the company’s National Sales Manager, Clint Welker. “Their in-depth familiarity with Hawaiian Springs as well as the markets they serve will be key as they share our natural artesian water with more and more retailers in Hawaii and the U.S. mainland.”
“One of the things that drew me to Hawaiian Springs, aside from the fact that it is the only premium American-sourced water in the country, is the commitment to preserving the Islands’ endangered habitats,” says Bucky, referring to Hawaiian Springs’ Preserving Paradise conservation initiative. He comes to Hawaiian Springs with more than 10 years of sales experience in both fast-paced retail environments and food and beverage distribution, including chain stores throughout California and Crest Beverage. Most recently, he led a sales team of more than 50 at enhanced-water manufacturer Neuro Brands.
“Hawaiian Springs Water is pure, clean, and authentically Hawaiian,” says Pence, “I am also eager to be a part of a company that uses a renewable source—rainfall—to bring its premium product to the world, rather than overtaxing rapidly shrinking source glaciers or straining municipal water supplies.” Her extensive experience in the beverage industry includes five years of sales and client management roles with wholesale beverage distributor Johnson Brothers of Hawaii and Red Bull, working with retail giants such as Wal-Mart, Whole Foods, Target, Walgreens, K-Mart, Foodland and Safeway.
About Hawaiian Springs
Hawaiian Springs began bottling its young, natural, artesian water in February 1995. Drawn from a highly sustainable artesian aquifer at the base of Mauna Loa on the Big Island of Hawaii, Hawaiian Springs bottles its water directly from the source within 30 days of falling as Arctic rain. Hawaiian Springs is one of the finest natural waters available today, with a distinctive, slightly sweet taste and delivering a moment of what makes Hawaii special.
Hawaiian Springs is available throughout the Hawaiian Islands, as well as the U.S. mainland, Canada and Asia, at leading supermarkets and natural food retailers such as Lucky’s, Bristol Farms, Raley’s, BelAir, Nob Hill Foods, Henry’s Farmers Market, Gelson’s Markets, Mollie Stone’s, Mother’s Market, SaveMart, Sprouts Farmers Market, Vitamin Cottage Natural Grocers and Whole Foods.
