FoodMaven Announces New Vice President of Strategy Bobby Grinstead
DENVER, CO - Like a game of chess, strategy is key in our industry. As it looks to establish new partnerships with distributors, FoodMaven appointed Bobby Grinstead as its new Vice President of Strategy.
“I believe FoodMaven’s model can transform the food distribution system and bring value to food distributors in every region in the country. I have always believed that being successful in the food distribution business means being a great supply chain partner. Our goal, to be the service leader in an underserved category, will make us just that; a great supply chain partner for our customers, suppliers, and communities,” said Grinstead.
In his new role, Grinstead will help FoodMaven establish partnerships with independent food distributors to roll out its business model further as the company plans to expand to three additional US markets in 2021, a press release revealed.
Spending his career in food distribution, Grinstead brings experience that ranges from business finance, to supply chain strategy, technology implementation, mergers, and acquisitions.
“Bobby’s experience in food distribution and mergers and acquisitions is ideal for the next stage of FoodMaven’s growth,” said CEO Ben Deda. “We have put together a team that will grow and scale FoodMaven’s model so we can have a tremendous impact on the food distribution system by reducing food waste and increasing revenue for suppliers without a market for their product.”
Apart from his extensive cross-functional experience, Grinstead also serves on multiple industry association committees and is a Co-Founder of the Dallas Fresh Food Association.
As the company continues to expand with more food distributor partners, we at ANUK are excited to see how this new executive appointment launches it to success.
