Traynor joins the team as the new International Sales Manager supporting all of Klean’s international distributors andwill be based at the company headquarters in Chico, California. 

“Jennefer comes to Klean with a solid background in international sales and experience with international logistics, “said Michael Duffy, Director of Sales at Klean Kanteen. “With distribution in 40 plus countries worldwide, Klean is poised to support grassroots change as part of the global movement to break the single-use habit. Jenn’s love[EB1]  of travel and commitment to sustainability make her a natural fit for our team, and we look forward to seeing the positive influence she will have on our international sales.”
