Just got this email from account management phenom Tom Harbeck ...
I am pleased to share that I have accepted the position of Chief Marketing Officer of Applegate Farms, a natural and organic meat company based in Bridgewater, NJ. AF is a private company with @$60+MM revenues, with many leading skus in the major Natural Food chains. I was brought in as part of a newly formed Executive Management Team, and will oversee Marketing, Sales Support, Corporate Communications and Product Packaging as the company expands into mass retail outlets.
If I have done my homework correctly, we are about to grow very rapidly.
I have been remiss in sending this having started at the beginning of the year, and then up to my eyeballs in getting up to speed/getting things going here. Last year was a satisfying range of consulting projects but sensing I could play a key management role in a rapidly growing company, shape and build its brand, and be motivated by its core values made the decision to join Applegate easy.
Many thanks to all of you who helped make this happen.
