He has grown clients in the produce, grocery and specialty categories within the club, grocery, mass, drug, convenience and alternate channels.

“We’re excited to welcome Dennis to our family,” said Brian Maguire, EVP, JOH Produce. “He has been a friend of JOH for a long time! His background and ability to grow business for clients and customers make him a great addition.” 

Frank Tuma has accepted the position of EVP of the Great Lakes Region. He has a track record of building businesses in the region. Tuma began his career in 1990 as a retail rep in Wisconsin. He grew to be an account executive and regional manager before starting his own company, Retail Specialist, in 1999. In 2009, Frank entered into a joint venture with Impact Sales.

“We are thrilled that Frank has joined the JOH family,” said Matt O’Hare, president and COO. “We have admired him as a competitor and industry friend for more than 20 years. Frank brings an incredible amount of passion, energy, knowledge and experience to this growing region.”

In early November, Frank will begin leading our teams in the Minneapolis, Wisconsin, Dakotas and Chicago markets.

Lori Neitzel has joined the Great Lakes team as an account manager in the Chicago/Wisconsin market.

Neitzel is a food-industry veteran with more than 26 years of experience overseeing customer accounts in the Midwest. She has experience managing large budgets, analyzing processes and procedures, adapting and executing plans to exceed client and customer expectations and growing sales.

“Lori will be an invaluable member of our Great Lakes team,” said Greg Reed, regional director, Great Lakes Division. “She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in the food business and has established many great relationships over the years.”

Joshua “Josh” Hartwell has joined the JOH team as an account manager in the New England market.

Hartwell has been in various roles during his 26-year tenure in the food industry. From sales and marketing to manufacturing, account management and developing private label and pioneering upstart brands, he has successfully built client and peer relationships to drive sales and achieve targeted goals.

“We are thrilled to welcome Josh to our team,” said Gerry Castignetti, EVP, sales manager, grocery, frozen and dairy division. “Throughout his career, he has had incredible successes. I’m excited to see what we’re able to do together with our clients and customers.”
