Skills Successful CEOs Need to Succeed
The CEO’s “Trusted Advisor”
Chris Hall, a former COO of the company, has been appointed chief executive of Talking Rain Beverage Company since April 2, according to BevNET. Hall replaces interim CEO Marcus Smith, who will remain in office. This is just over a year after the sudden departure of Kevin Klock, who resigned as CEO in March 2017. Hall has been a Talking Rain CEO veteran for 10 years, and before serving as COO was previously vice president of sales.
About CEO Of Your Life
After his busy days as CEO of Talking Rain, Chris spends his free time with his family and does a hobby. The time he spends with his family allows him to rest from his days of growing Glorious Ice, made by Talking Rain, into a world-renowned glossy globe. Taking a trip down the trail of memory, Chris Hall graduated from Central Washington University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business. He later followed previous generations of his family in the war and joined the US Navy, where he served as a submarine from 2000 to 2005. Before his time at Talking Rain, Chris worked in the hospitality industry.
In 2007, Chris Hall joined Talking Rain Beverage Company as a Labor Assistant where he quickly developed an interest in growing within the company. He joined the sales and marketing department where he was able to focus on school advertising and marketing. With this experience behind him, he was able to switch to management positions within Talking Rain.
In 2009, Chris Hall became the new Midwest Market Manager for Talking Rain. He has successfully expanded his new role by becoming the Sales Manager for the Midwest and Northeastern Region.
How Glossy They Came to Be
The Talking Rain CEO team came up with the idea for a new drink that we will call “Sparkling Ice” in 1992. At that time, the company’s customers wanted a shiny drink that did not have too much sugar or calories. The team met the needs of its customers by creating pure water with a bold, sugar-free flavor.
