I enthusiastically joined the GNM team to continue to positively build on their GREAT work and award winning results. It is my mission to provide the right platform where our brands gain exposure to the decision makers in my territory while creating an opportunity through brand education, brand ad vocation and ultimately placement.

Doug Rich |  Pacific Northwest Territory Manager

“Twenty years ago my wife and I moved to the Pacific Northwest from NYC seeking a healthy, outdoor-centric lifestyle and clean environment in which to raise a family.  We strongly believe in the crucial role of natural, authentic, minimally processed foods in promoting good health.  When people eat/drink well and exercise, we feel good – the key to genuine happiness!  I am delighted to return to the natural food/beverage service market representing GNM’s great brands to customers that appreciate their quality, authenticity, and value.  It’s highly rewarding to develop the relationships – through traditional and innovative distribution channels – that bring these wholesome products to more people.”

“Outside of GNM, I enjoy stand-up paddle boarding, Nordic and alpine skiing, and tossing a lacrosse ball on an expansive Oregon beach with my sons and dog.  My community service includes teaching tai chi classes and serving on my city’s business sustainability leadership network.”

 

Lucy Rountree | Director of Sales East

“I have the pleasure of supporting our team and sales efforts on the east coast. As a “southern girl,” food has always been a focal point, a vehicle for experiencing the rich culture of the south, bringing family and friends together.

At a young age I became enchanted with the joy that food from our own garden brought to our lives. My tastes evolved and in order to support my growing palate, I worked in many wonderful restaurants throughout college. I continued on a foodservice-centric path with Sysco after college.

I’m thrilled to use my skill set, knowledge and passion to educate people on the importance of clean, sustainable food and beverage. My goal is to make our brands the industry standards, for the health of the planet and its inhabitants.

When I’m not talking about our awesome brands, you can find me riding my mountain bike or horse, hanging with my friends, sweet family, two pet bunny rabbits and the man of my dreams… always, to a perfect soundtrack.”

 

Marina Saffel | Southeast Territory Manager

As the Southeast Territory Manager I cover the states of Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi. I have worked in food distribution and sales for the last five years and prior to this I was in restaurant operations for 10 years. Food is my life!   As a part of the GNM team I am thrilled to make available “better for you” products for all consumers.  I believe that healthy and clean labeled products are not just something consumers want at their local grocery store but are the standards they expect when dining out. Working daily with our brands, who believe this same concept, make my job fun and rewarding.

I live in Atlanta, Georgia with my husband and two daughters. I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends on the weekends and always look forward to reading a great book.
