In October 2022, INMA awarded 30 young professionals around the world with its third “30 Under 30” award as part of its Young Professionals Initiative. This is the seventh in a series of 30 features about the impressive rising media stars who are shaping our industry.
Since joining Gannett in 2014, Trey has proven himself as a leader, mentor, and product knowledge expert in the digital space. Although he was only 20 when he joined the team, he was promoted to manager by the age of 22 and became a successful, goal-achieving director at 25.
In addition to honing the skills required to lead a sales team, Trey has excelled in taking on additional responsibilities in the organisation, such as being a key contributor to internal teams for the launch of the company’s new advertising sales structure, sales lead for the launch of new company products, and lead for all digital sales training within his sales region.
He also established himself as a subject matter expert for auto advertising sales in the Pacific West.
Trey has demonstrated he has what it takes to lead a sales group with accountability, but even more importantly, he leads with optimism, kindness, and empathy — which is part of what makes him such a well-rounded leader.
