Primary leader in driving the team that took Wells’ Blue Bunny to a national brand, also executed two turnarounds – one for the dairy division and one as team lead at Walmart.
–Took Blue Bunny from a regional brand with approximately 35% ACV in the US to the nation’s third largest brand on the heels of Unilever and Nestle and over 70% ACV in 5 years. To accomplish, had to elevate sales staff performance, by setting high expectations, creating a culture of continuous improvement, implementing the company’s most effective training program, and ultimately applying a laser focus on driving category growth for every customer.
Most recently at Horizon Food Group as SVP Sales and Marketing.
Greatest value is in driving growth, building top teams and developing high level customer partnerships with the largest retailers in the US.
–A noted leader of people and respected teammate that has shown the ability to drive significant growth in the nation’s largest retailers, mass merchants and club stores in the US. Personally builds strong top to top relationships with customer’s executives by creating valuable, strategic, joint-business planning sessions to solve category problems.
Strongest point of differentiation as a Sales Leader is that I truly take a General Management / P&L ownership mindset into every role which drives efficient, profitable growth.
