Meet The Team
Senior Sales Representative
"I love hugs and inappropriate jokes."
One of the first on the scene at UNS Wholesale, Andy Paul has spent the last two years helping us grow from our humble beginnings. When Andy joined our team he brought with him a wealth of product knowledge and has been able to assist our clients with outstanding precision even offering advice to struggling smoke shop owners. Andy is motivated to succeed in everything he does, and he wants to bring that motivation for success to you.
In his civilian life, Andy enjoys going to live rock shows for local and national names. He's even been known to take the stage as a vocalist for a band called (intheclear). One of four children, Andy has a large close knit family he often spends time with. When asked what he wanted to ensure everyone knew about him, Andy said, "I loves hugs and inappropriate jokes."
"Meeting new people and seeing new places is what life is all about."
With over 11 years in this industry Eric has been around long enough to see trends die out and cycle back again. He has a vast knowledge of smoke shop products and brings with him an impressive love of helping his clients succeed in all they do. With vast connections in the industry, if there's someone you need to meet, Grover likely knows them.
Grover was born and raised in Ohio, but he has a big love of Kentucky made bourbon. With the UNS Wholesale office being located near Kentucky's Bourbon Trail, joining our team was a perfect fit. In his spare time, Grover loves to travel to new places and meet new people.
"I will always will be upfront and honest, no bullshit or shady salesman games."
Born and raised in Toledo, OH Lou prides himself on honesty and integrity in a business that sometimes doesn't represent those values. If you've been in the smoke shop industry for any amount of time you've probably heard Lou's name. A seasoned veteran, he's been doing this for over 14 years!
Lou's world came to a screeching halt when his daughter was born last year. Like many men before him, he never imagined himself as a Dad, but life had other plans and Lou couldn't be more grateful for his little lady. He's even fully embraced dad jokes in all their glory. When not hitting the phones and taking orders for UNS Wholesale, Lou also has a thriving real estate business.
Senior Account Executive
"Clients are always my first priority!"
If you've been in the smoke shop industry for any amount of time then you've likely met Keith. He's an OG having been in this business for over 13 years, many of them spent at Glow Industries. Clients love his easy going personality, his professionalism, and (as he says) his ability to "get shit done!" Not only does he have the field experience you might be looking for, Keith also has a B.A. in Business.
When Keith isn't killing it taking your orders and helping UNS Wholesale manage business he is usually spending time with his kids (he has three!). Weekends and evenings he can be found coaching youth sports or maybe playing a round of golf.

"I love dicks."
"Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth"
New to the industry, Candi had a lot to learn when she first arrived at UNS Wholesale a year ago, but her 13 years of experience in marketing and ability to catch on quickly meant she brought a lot to the table. In 2016 Candi was named Business Source's 20 Under 40. With a B.S. in Business Marketing and Management, Google certifications, nominations to other prestigious awards, and ability to act quickly on her feet we are glad to have her be a part of the team.
Candi dedicates a lot of her time to local nonprofits, sitting on the board of one. She has helped organize town festivals, multiple gala events, fundraised, and assisted with silent auctions. But, if you ask her about what she does in her spare time she will tell you that she spends it with family. She has two young children under 4 that keep her extra busy.
