WAYNE, Pa. The Emerson Group recently announced that 37-year industry veteran Daryl Beck has joined the company and will manage the company’s military sales business, as well as call on Walmart.
“Over his career, [Beck] has called on major wholesale and retail accounts, including Walmart, Sam’s, JC Penney, Eckerd Drug, Family Dollar Stores, Fox Meyer and Sally Beauty,” stated Rick Wellinger, Emerson president. “[Beck] has developed a true understanding of the logistical side of Walmart’s business and works closely with replenishment to ensure optimal service levels for our Walmart clients. He is a key contributor to our success at our largest retailer.”
Beck first joined Hynes Sales in 1973. He assumed responsibility for calling on Walmart, which had 225 stores at that time, in 1978. The following year, he was promoted to general manager of Hynes’ Southwest division and held that position until 2008, when Acosta acquired Hynes. Since then, Beck has served as a director for Acosta, continuing to call on Walmart headquarters. He also has called on the Army and Air Force Exchange Service for the past 10 years.
Beck is a graduate of Georgia State University and will continue to live in the Dallas area.
