Tim Quinn, Mars Chocolate North America

Tim Quinn, vice president of trade development at Mars Chocolate North America, Hackettstown, N.J., will chair the National Confectioners Association’s (NCA) 2014 Sweets & Snacks Expo for the third year in a row. The expo is the largest venue representing all major U.S. distribution channels of candy and snack products in one location, attracting more than 15,000 industry professionals from 90 countries in May 2013.

“It’s truly an honor to be asked to return to lead this vital forum for sharing and showcasing innovation within our industry,” Quinn says. “The Sweets & Snacks Expo has evolved over the past 17 years, becoming not only a tradeshow for new products, but also an invaluable resource for the industry. It’s a place where manufacturers and customers can find practical business strategies, inspiring ideas and effective merchandising solutions.”

Larry Graham, NCA president, adds, “Tim is a highly respected member of our community who brings a wealth of expertise, insights and innovative thinking to our event. We’re fortunate to have him chairing the 2014 expo, which under his leadership, promises once again to be the best place for industry members to discover, learn and connect.”

In his 30-year career at Mars, Quinn has held a number of sales and marketing positions of progressive responsibility. He has worked with multiple trade channels and gained a broad background in delivering customer-specific, consumer-focused solutions. Quinn also serves as an ex officio member of the NCA executive board and holds leadership positions in multiple industry associations. In 2012, he was inducted into the Candy Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who have made major contributions to the global confectionery industry.

The 2014 Sweets and Snacks Expo will take place May 20-22 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. For more information, visit www.sweetsandsnacks.com.
