JOHNSON CITY, TN (PRWEB) November 6, 2006
Hamman Marketing Associates, a food-marketing consultancy, has added brokering to its service offering. Since its founding in 1999, the agency has focused on marketing communications activities like advertising, public relations, packaging and trade show promotion.
"Brokering is the next logical step to service clients," says agency founder and owner Al Hamman. "Taking this step was, unfortunately, precipitated by the death of good friend and colleague Jerry Shupak. Jerry was a key associate in driving the sales process, and it's going to take a tremendous effort to try to fill that void."
Hamman brings significant experience as a territory sales manager and corporate marketing director. Working not only in the food industry, his experience includes market verticals like gift, housewares, hardware, travel, chain drug stores, and 'big box' retailers.
In addition to a traditional sales and marketing background, Al is also a graduate of The Player's Workshop of The Second City in Chicago, where he studied stage improvisation and creative writing. Additional credits include Children's Theatre of The Second City, Athenaeum Theater Company, Chicago Gilbert & Sullivan Society, and numerous print, TV, and film appearances.
Hamman Marketing Associates provides a wide range of sales support activities and represents specialty food manufacturers including The Original Ceylon Tea Company, Toad-Ally Snax, Fooddude.Com, and Sultan's Finest Food of Tunisia.
