California living.

Play that joint! It never rains in Southern California

This past week the SQUIRE sales team was summoned to Temecula, the heart of wine country, for the 2020 Sales Kick Off. The meet-up was hosted by the company’s head of sales, Brian Murakami, with special guest –  the man himself – CT Barber Expo founder and creative director, Jay Majors. The days were full of countless activities: panels, education, customer knowledge and more. With all that said, drinks and food were on heavy rotation throughout the entire weekend.

To show some love, the team members got hooked up with tons of personalized brand merch. The top performing, best of the best salesmen, Logan Podrebarac and Brian Jackson, each took home an award and iPad for being the dominate rep in their respective regions.

But it wasn’t all work and no play – the team spent plenty of time connecting with new and familiar faces inside, outside, all around the California mansion.
Then after having a great few days of mapping out the company’s goals for the new year, the team closed out the week with a bang – kicking it one last time with a group dinner at a private winery overlooking the beautiful Temecula landscape. The drinks were flowing… champagne, wine, lots of laughter, more wine. During the meal, Brian acknowledged some other crew members that have been rocking the SQUIRE culture for some time now. By the end of dinner, everyone left feeling turnt and ready to get back to the hustle.
Big shout out to Josh, Logan, Brian J, Beats, Armon, Brian, Frank, Lauren, Logan, Ricky, Tyler, Damian, Brian A., Indhira, Brandon, Rafael, Grace, Jay Majors, Curtis… all of the team members who made this one of the best SQUIRE team retreats yet.
