Trinity has been the CEO of Double L since the summer of 2021. There is no typical day for him, and that is why he loves his job. One minute, it’s balance sheets, inventory levels and the next minute it is new product development. Talking to our employees, building relationships with our distributors and customers are the highlights of his job. Although each morning brings a new challenge; logistics, raw material price increases and competition – he finds it enjoyable because of the people. The team embraces these challenges everyday with courage and resiliency, and for that he couldn’t be more thankful.
Trinity has a wife, Karolyn, and kids that support him tremendously. He finds comfort and encouragement in his church family too. His three dogs can often be seen coming to work with him and keep the office lively. As a Kentucky native he is likely to be found drinking bourbon, watching UK Basketball, reading, or fly fishing outside of work. Trinity served in the Marine Corps, so all crayons are kept out of reach. If you ask, he will gladly share a story from his past adventures.
