This sounds 99% like a horrible rumor...he hasn't been there more than a few months, and it makes no sense. How certain are you?

I didn’t realize there was a time frame from when you get hired and decide to make a horrible decision like sending nudes to employees. I am about a billion percent t sure it is true.

If it is true, the person in question deserved to be terminated. It would also mean that a 20+ year career at Sysco ended due to a very poor decision. If it is not true, I would hope that the poster would clarify.

You have no proof!!! How can you be so sure, you would have to be HR, regional Pres, or the Opco Pres who was let go to truly know the reason. You are not any of those, so do not pretend to know fact. What you're inferring is he did it without having real evidence. This person had an untarnished near perfect career, over 25 years of a stellar career, if he had issues like this they would have manifested itself years ago. Be careful with your Billion percent Bullshit! Karma is a bitch.
People like you are a dime a dozen, Yes, I am making this personal because you did without a shred of proof.

You sound like a wanna be VP!  You can continue to keep your head in the sand while all the best people that built Sysco jump ship!  I imagine that your skills are so mediocre that you are just too afraid to leave the bubble.  Are you one of those leaders that bobs their head up and down in agreement with every new initiative?  The only selling that occurs in Seattle is in the conference room between DSM's and Executive staff.  Selling each other on how to "message" the latest from corporate or how to coach salespeople who have brains enough to question.  Believe it or not but there are better companies that respect and help grow their employees.  I like to think or US Foods and Sysco as IBM.  The Independents are hungry and will expose the Broadliners for the dinosaurs they are!

With a handle like conman44, he must be a DSM. I've had my fill of these micromanaging robots during my time in the field. 

Both USF and Sysco have changed from foodservice distribution companies to marketing companies. They're more concerned with selling Scoop (or the Sysco equivalent) and other proprietary products/programs than working with customers to supply what they need. Selling Scoop should be part of the selling process, but not the only reason to see a customer.

Good luck at your next company, Neo. I hope they don't get gobbled up by one of the big boys.

Neo, sounds to me like you have a selling problem. No matter what company you attempt to sell for you will be faced with objections, jumping around was never the answer, like I have said, seen dozens of folks like you struggle through Sales. Been selling my entire life successfully and continue to do so. So you missed on your assumption of wanna be VP. Also not a DSM, funny that you guys automatically assume a corporate robot when a true sales guy calls you out for whining. And Formerdsr you could not be more wrong in your Assumption. Who cares about what the corporate line is if you are out kicking ass and not using excuses (Corporate) because of your lack of performance.
It all comes down to one thing, What sort of value are you to your customers??? That is not a Marketing line! That is pure sales 101!!!! No Value, no commission, period.

The OPCO Pres is a person I have known and worked with directly and indirectly. In those years, I never witnessed the sort of behavior that is alleged.  "I am about a billion percent sure that it is true" Okay - I call it - how do you know and how are you a billion percent sure?

The back and forth about selling. Ask yourself - what sets you apart? What value do YOU offer? Operators often know more than their sales person about products. Companies have to build strategies and define what sets them apart - or they fall behind and they either become irrelevant or they are acquired. Anyone that has to brag about what a great sales person they are may need to question who they are trying to sell.

Selling in Seattle will be fun for the new locally owned family distributor!  Time to make the move!

Sounds to me like a great time for some new competition.  Believe that Corfini has taken on some new ownership/partners of some kind recently.  I imagine they expect to see some of that business fall off the broadline trucks  and into their lap.
