District Sales Manager honored at Annual Meeting

June 25, 2018

One of the highlights of the PURE Oil Jobbers Cooperative 25th Anniversary and Annual Shareholders’ Meeting was special recognition for a man who was well known and respected for his dedication to customer service.

Graham Varn, District Sales Manager of the PURE Co-op for nearly 17 years, retired on Feb. 28, 2018. Thus, the timing was ideal for Graham to be honored shortly after his retirement, during the Friday evening dinner of the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting in Orlando.


Graham’s territory for the majority of his tenure as District Sales Manager for the PURE Co-op included the states of Florida, Georgia, and parts of South Carolina. The Co-op Members in those areas knew him well, with many showing their appreciation during his special recognition at the Annual Meeting following his retirement.

Graham’s wife Mary joined him in Orlando during the 25th Anniversary Celebration. They both noted they are looking forward to enjoying more time together as a result of Graham’s retirement.


While losing such an experienced and dedicated District Sales Manager isn’t easy, the PURE Members within Graham’s old territory will be in good hands. Joining the sales team at PURE within this past year are fellow District Sales Managers Tim Kelley and Bob Kravcenko. Tim will assist PURE Members in North Georgia, while Bob will cover South Georgia and all of Florida and South Carolina.
