PHOENIX  — The Driver Provider welcomed as its new Kelly Alderete director of sales and business development on Aug. 2. Her duties will consist of focusing on building new and existing affiliate relationships, increasing outbound retail and group sales efforts, and networking within the five different markets the company serves, including Tucson and Sedona, Ariz.; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Jackson Hole, Wyo.

“I’ve watched and admired her in our industry now for some time,” said Kendra Kaplan, general manager of The Driver Provider. “I have a lot of respect for the way she conducts herself as a person and in business. She’s the utmost professional —innovative, responsive, and committed to excellence.”

“We look forward to many successes together,” Kaplan says.
