How I can help you

I can help in the areas of Client Management, marketing and sales. As a foodservice broker for over 35 years my experience comes from working as a direct associate with a fortune 500 company, starting a foodservice brokerage company from scratch in the State of Virginia and ultimately forming a regional agency that was purchased by a large international food brokerage firm. My experience locally was dealing with both large and small foodservice distribution companies (i.e. SYSCO, US Foods, etc.). I also had relationships with independent restaurants, chains and foodservice management companies. I spent the last few years of my tenure at a large international food brokerage agency as head of the USAs "Client Management Group". I aided large companies in rolling out marketing plans and new product launches. My last direct responsibility was rolling out Keurig Coffee nationally from scratch in the foodservice arena. I had a deep pride in our industry and was awarded the Foodservice Sales and Marketing Associations national award for most lifetime contributions to the Foodservice Industry in 2016.
