Dynamite Duo: Mark Miller (left) Eastern Sales Manager, Brian Lenz (right) Western Sales Manager
Whitehall Specialties, Inc. has hired two fantastic regional sales managers and re-structured its sales teams to better serve existing customers. The moves will also help make more food processors, food service operators and retailers aware of the value that non-standard of identity cheeses can bring to their businesses.
Brian Lenz has joined the company as Western Regional Sales Manager and will lead our team of internal sales professionals, brokers and distributors in serving customers in the western half of the country. Brian has over 13 years of experience in the food/dairy industry, most recently serving as a Director of National Accounts for Thiel Cheese and Ingredients. He holds a BS degree from the University of Wisconsin. Working with Brian on the western regional team as inside sales manager will be Autumn Tallman, a 12-year veteran of Whitehall Specialties. Brian and Autumn will be further supported by an inside sales assistant.
Mark Miller has been named Eastern Regional Sales Manager and will lead a similar team for the eastern half of the country. Mark has 25 years of experience in the food/dairy industry, most recently as a Director of National Accounts for Thiel Cheese and Ingredients. Mark earned a BS degree from Eastern Illinois University. Kory Solberg, with 17 years of experience at Whitehall, will work with Mark as inside sales manager for his region. This team will also be further supported by an inside sales assistant.
Steven Lutzke, who joined Whitehall in 2013 as Technical Sales Manager will provide technical sales support to both teams while also directly managing a few key national accounts. In addition to Steven, Whitehall’s R&D and product development teams will also directly support our regional sales teams and our customers to ensure that Whitehall Specialties is able to provide the best solutions possible to our customers’ needs.
