LAND O’LAKES, FL -- Roger Stewart has joined Holiday House Distributing as vice-president of sales. He joins HHD from the National Automatic Merchandising Association, where he had been director of coffee and water service.
Stewart brings extensive experience in workplace refreshment operations and distribution to his new post.

He relocated to Seattle and was appointed vice-president of business development between USOP and Starbucks Corp. Stewart subsequently was named president of USOP’s AAA Coffee division (Seattle), a $13 million OCS operation, and later became owner and president of his own coffee service in Grand Rapids.
