Employee Spotlight : Trey McClenahan

Meet Trey McClenahan!

Trey works as an Industrial Truck Salesman in our Little Rock, AR location and has been with the company five years!

On a typical day, Trey keeps busy by selling forklifts, meeting new customers and providing solutions to their needs. When asked what his favorite thing about his job was, Trey replied, “There is a new application every day, no two days are ever the same”.

Trey has a long history with Hugg & Hall. In 1997 his mother, Neeli Kinzler, started working here. Trey would often come with her to the office when it was “still okay to bring your kids to work”. Later, he came back to his Hugg & Hall roots and interned at our Jonesboro location as a sales intern while attending Arkansas State University. Now, Trey is officially a part of the Hugg & Hall sales team!

When Trey is away from the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Tessie, and their two dogs Bama and Harper. Other than his family, Trey also has a passion for two of his favorite hobbies – duck hunting and fishing which he tries to enjoy every chance he gets.

We are thrilled to have Trey as a part of the Hugg & Hall family!
