Parham Retires from Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company

January 4, 2010

CHICAGO - Rob Parham, fleet manager for the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company, retired Dec. 31, 2009 after 33 years of service. 

Parham joined Wrigley in 1976 as a packaging designer. In 1981, he became a purchasing agent in the procurement group. Parham assumed responsibility for Wrigley's U.S. fleet in 1985. In the following years, Parham held various management positions in procurement, office administration, and facilities management departments, while continuing to maintain management of Wrigley's U.S. fleet. Parham also provided consulting services to Wrigley's Canadian fleet and in 2005 provided leadership to the start-up of Wrigley's fleet services in Mexico.

Upon joining the facilities services group, daily responsibility for the U.S. sales fleet was transferred to the procurement group, but Parham continued to manage the executive fleet, while assisting the staff responsible for the Wrigley fleets in Canada and Mexico. In addition, Parham served on the GM Commercial Fleet Sounding Board and was a founding member of the Chrysler Customer Advisory Board. Wrigley's future fleet responsibilities will be shared with the procurement and executive administration departments.
