November 9, 2011, Boulder, CO – Two foodservice and office product industry veterans are joining the Eco-Products team.
Christopher Shepardson has been brought on to Eco-Products' board of directors, and Todd Elmers has signed on as business development manager for office products.
Shepardson currently leads the foodservice business unit for Inno-Pak LLC, a packaging solutions supplier for the grocery and foodservice industry. He is the former vice-president of sourcing and merchandising for Sysco Corporation.
“Chris’s foodservice, global sourcing, and leadership experience will bring unique perspective and insight to our board of directors,” said Mike Hastings, CEO of Eco-Products. “This addition provides Eco-Products with the experience required to address the opportunities and challenges present in today’s dynamic foodservice environment.”
Elmers comes to Eco-Products with 25 years of experience in the office products channel, including eight years at Corporate Express where he was senior vice-president of merchandising and furniture. Corporate Express was acquired by office products giant Staples, Inc. in 2008.
“I am thrilled to welcome Todd to the Eco-Products family,” said Rich Mills, vice-president of sales for Eco-Products. “His sales and merchandising experience will help us gain further traction in a channel where our products are becoming increasingly popular.”
