In order to build new wholesale relationships and chase after new opportunities in Wisconsin, Springside Cheese recently brought on C.J. Crowther as its new Customer Account Manager. In this role, Crowther will continue to build upon the company’s expansions. He began his position in mid-January of this year.
With over 11 years spent in the food industry, Crowther noted that, “I’m a true foodie at heart with a passion for cheese.” His passion led him to spend five years as a food broker for prominent grocery chains. Prior to jumpstarting his career, Crowther studied business at Salt Lake Community College, after which he began working at Safeway as a Deli Manager.
Within five years at Safeway, he moved to United Sales & Services where he continued to build relationships with manufacturers across 123 Safeway stores in the Denver metro area. Crowther built strong working relationships with the Safeway Denver division office team as well as its district management team, a press release noted. He also has experience working with independent and family-owned grocery stores to maximize their sales.
“Springside Cheese is committed to ensuring our products reach customers wherever they are,” said Keith Hintz, Co-Owner and President. “We are excited to have C.J. on board to help us explore new opportunities and better support our current relationships."
Congratulations from all of us here at Deli Market News to C.J. on this new position!
