Springfield native Chris Keeton, receiving supervisor at DirectBuy of Springfield, was recently recognized for his 10 years of service at DirectBuy’s International Sales & Service Conference, held May 23-26 in Dallas, Texas.
Keeton began his tenure in 1996. After a four-year stint in the Marines, he rejoined DirectBuy and quickly established himself as a jack-of-all-trades and owner Tracye Corbin’s “right-hand man.”
“Chris is the most versatile, well-rounded employee at the Springfield club,” said Brian Gerstenberger, DirectBuy Corporate’s Manager of Field Sales. “When a situation needs defusing, he frequently steps in and handles it.”
A lifelong Springfield resident, Keeton is active with the local Shriners. He’s is also an avid reader and writer, has completed the draft for a children’s book, and is currently writing a book on minor league baseball.
“Even though a lot has changed over the course of my career here, the main premise of DirectBuy has not–we still save our members a lot of money,” said Keeton. “The only thing that’s changed or improved through technology is how we do that.”
