A.J. Letizio Sales & Marketing Foodservice Division Announces Promotions
A.J. Letizio Sales & Marketing, Inc. is pleased to announce the promotion of three members of its Foodservice Division. Lynne Pellegrini will become Category Director for Healthcare, Cassie Miller-Leone will become Category Director for K-12, and Tom Hills Jr. will become Vice President of Business Management.
Lynne Pellegrini has served as Director of Sales for K-12 and Healthcare for the past six years with A.J. Letizio and has overseen a period of great growth. Under her leadership the company more than doubled the team of K-12 specialists and the client portfolio grew to include top-tier manufacturers throughout the entire Northeast. Lynne’s day-to-day account responsibilities remain focused on K-12 customers in southern New England, but her leadership efforts at A.J. Letizio will be aimed at delivering consistent, efficient, and effective results in the Healthcare category, a segment that is nationally projected to outpace the growth of all other foodservice segments.
Cassie Miller-Leone has served as a K-12 specialist with A.J. Letizio for the past three years and has consistently grown the business in the New York territory. Cassie has earned every accolade along the way, including the New York School Nutrition Association’s 2021 Jeff Siegel Award for professionalism in business, personal integrity, and outstanding dedication. Universally respected by peers and clients alike, Cassie is ideally suited to step into the K-12 Category Director role.
Tom Hills Jr. has served as Director of Sales for foodservice since joining A.J. Letizio in 2017. Prior to that his distinguished career in foodservice included leadership roles with Pilgrims of New England and Venture Sales Group, the latter of which became the foodservice division of Acosta Sales & Marketing, where Tom served prior to joining A.J. Letizio. Tom has provided key leadership and guidance during the unprecedented expansion of A.J. Letizio’s foodservice division, which has grown from New England to cover the whole Northeastern United States. In Tom’s new role he will support all client business management for A.J. Letizio’s foodservice division.
