Meet Brenda Aho.
We are celebrating her recent promotion to our Director of Business Development. At Riggs we are proud of the incredible and intelligent women that work tirelessly to make our company the success that it is!
Brenda has been with Riggs Distributing for over 15 years! Brenda was originally recruited as our Front Desk Administrator and has worked her way up through the organization.
“My first promotion at Riggs was from Inside Sales to Purchasing Manager. Although I didn’t have the experience nor education to qualify for this role, Grant took a chance on me and opened up that door for my growth. This is the Riggs culture and DNA that I am so proud to be a part of – one that supports our growth, sees the best in us today and the potential we have for tomorrow.”
Brenda recently completed her MBA, with a focus in Executive Leadership and Innovation, at Santa Clara University and we are happy to acknowledge the incredible achievement that is. She has been an invaluable member of the Riggs team and proven instrumental in developing our Delivery and Installation department.
In her new role of Director of Business Development, Brenda will continue to work to fine-tune our Delivery and Installation program. With Brenda’s solution-based mentality she will be able to build efficiencies, identify opportunities for growth, and ensure that our customer service meets the standards of our consumers. Brenda possesses vast knowledge in our business and a natural ability to build strong connections with her team, we are so happy to watch her succeed!
When it comes to what Brenda lives for on a personal level, she has an 8 year old son that she adores completely. She loves cooking and experimenting in the kitchen and she is a sponsor for San Mateo County Foster Families.
“My passion is creating opportunities for others to achieve their highest purpose in life. My education and experience is in service to others – to open doors that will lead them to their next step(s) in life and give them a platform to be seen and heard.“
