This month we head down to the valley of the sun and Craig Hartley. Craig, affectionally known as “Grandpa”, has been a staple here at TSI. Chances are if you ever called, emailed, or just done business with us, you’ve talked to Craig. As our east coast sales manager, he has his signature on most everything around here. In April he will celebrate his 21st year with this great company!
Craig spent 15 years in retail management with some outside sales mixed in. In 1999 he decided to go back to school to study computers and 3D animation. A fellow student of his recruited Craig to TSI to help with computer artwork for product manuals. After a few months a sales position opened and that was it. He is not sure when the day will be when he retires, but let’s hope it’s not anytime soon!
He grew up in Central FL where he enjoyed water sports, camping, and scouting and participating in service groups such as Sertoma and Jaycees. Craig met the love of his life Traci in 2001 and gained three daughters, and now three grandchildren. Traci and Craig will be celebrating 20 years together this October. Congrats you two!!
When he isn’t working, he enjoys volunteering to help the homeless, and families less fortunate than him. Loves to work on projects around the house and going to see his grandchildren play basketball, and soccer. He also is an avid craft beer lover.
