Peerless, headquartered in Newark, New Jersey, has hired former distributor program manager, Zach LeBlanc, as a Regional Territory Manager for the East. Zach will be servicing New York City, PA, CT, DE, Washington D.C., and MD, taking over for Peter Hiatrides. Peter is continuing on with Peerless and has moved up to join industry veteran Charity Gibson on the National Accounts team, servicing the industry’s top 12 affiliate accounts across the US.

Zach brings with him a number of years as distributor sales rep, in addition to graphic design skills and a deep sense of creative idea generation, as well as the ability to provide unparalleled customer service.

National Sales Manager Dan Edge says, “We are thrilled to have Zach join the Peerless family. He is the perfect addition to round out the team as Peter transitions into this new position. Our clients in Zach’s region will benefit greatly from his past experience walking in their shoes, and from his dynamic skill set. We are very fortunate to have him!”


Zach is equally as grateful to be here stating, “I am absolutely stoked to be part of the Peerless team. They are a great group and I can’t wait to take my experiences from the distributor side of the industry and apply them to make Peerless even better for our customers.”
